      He's a great deputy to have but I'm aware that many will see him as too good to be a deputy. Love the guy, great character but I would still take Robbo as the first choice left back. That said, he's there and he keeps doing the job and is keeping Robbo honest. An absolute great signing for what we've got.

      It's too bad Kostas can't deputize at RB occasionally. Be nice for him to give Trent something to think about when Robbo comes back.

      Tsimikas is currently in better form than Andy and deserves to be starting ahead of him so when Andy is fit again let him fight for his place.

      What he provides to us at left back cover is exactly what Trent needs to have at right back.

      Ripping cross for Nunez's winner.

      Liked the way he talked in his post match interview as well.

      Keep up the great work Kostas!

      If Pennant is number 2 on a list, that stat is talking sh*t.

      Costas has played well, it's good to have 2 quality LBs. Andy probably still slightly ahead of Kostas IMO.

      Stats aren't facts - they can be presented in different ways to support wildly direct opinions.

      A fact is that Kostas ha a lovely left foot and provided a nice assist on Wednesday.

      Another fact is that Andy Robertson has 50 EPL assists - second only to Leighton Baines (53) in half the games.

      Kostas has 5 assists.

      Perspective.

      Sorry, I don't mean to offend you.
      Stats can be helpful but also can be misleading. Kostas might be top of that list but it doesn't tell us much about his quality. Pennant was an average player who wasted his career, he would not get into a JK squad. If he's second on the list I think that list is useless when attempting to assess players.

      Watching Kostas playing tells us he's a decent player and is very motivated and passionate about playing football for Liverpool. Pennant didn't appear to have any motivation or passion for football.
      Personally, I prefer Robbo but it's getting to be a tough decision for JK.

      If both fit - Robertson is number 1, he’s earned it and is a superb player.

      Kostas is a great back up with a good cross on him but I don't think it's a tough decision between the two at all. Robbo is a far better defender and his energy brings a much better balance to our play. We saw it against City where I thought Robbo set the tone for how we played and put in a hell of a shift.

      Kostas is still great for his role though, I can't think of many back up left backs better than him in the world and I hope he's happy with that role to stay with us long term.

      Perhaps you weren't fella but there's a crazy agenda by a minority jumping on unrepresentative stats like the one you shared to make out like there's a choice for Jürgen to make.

      I was merely contextualising appropriately. The only choice Jürgen sees is when to rest Robbo - he's that important to us.
