I feel a lot aren't appreciating the number of games we will play. I'd be surprised if we play less than 60. Even fully fit all season Robertson should probably be rested and rotated making around 40-45 starts at most, Trent same on other side. My ideal choice would be someone who can play both sides to a decent enough level so we don't suffer too much when Trent and Andy are rested. That player wouldn't have to worry about playing time as they'd get up to 20 starts on each side so almost as much playing time as the first two choices. Someone like Henrichs at Monaco could be perfect, he seemed perfect for our needs before the move but hasn't seemingly had a great season there (him or club underperforming though?). Monaco may even be tempted to do a loan with option to buy like they did with Tielmans to Leicester. Give us a chance to get a look at him first.Yep he is, but so is Milner, Gomez, Clyne. We aren't talking lots of games, but just the right amount for Robbo to be rested.
My preference is obviously a left footed 19 year old version of Robertson, but in the absence of that (and with Sessegnon seemingly wanting to remain in London) Klopp may look internally to fill a backup position.
