Andrew Robertson surpassed Leighton Baines as the defender with the most assists in Premier League history by teeing up Mohamed Salah’s early goal at Aston Villa on Monday.

Liverpool needed just five minutes to hit the front on their return to league action, with Robertson playing a key role by breaking Villa’s offside trap to deliver a low cross for Salah to convert.

That represented Robertson’s 54th Premier League assist – one more than former Everton and Wigan Athletic left-back Baines managed before his retirement in 2020.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – who sits third on that list with 45 assists – showcased his own vision for Liverpool’s opener with a sublime pass to release his fellow full-back Robertson.

Robertson’s assist was also his fifth in the Premier League this season, more than any other player has managed for Jurgen Klopp’s side – Salah is second with three.
