The Scout says Liverpool left-back can bring in points at both ends of the pitch against Aston Villa

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 4 of Fantasy Premier League.

Andrew Robertson (LIV) £7.0m

The Liverpool left-back has enjoyed a consistent start to the new FPL campaign.

At home, Robertson supplied an assist against Leeds United in Gameweek 1 and then scored the second goal in a 3-1 win over Arsenal in Gameweek 3.

He also helped the Reds claim a clean sheet at Chelsea in Gameweek 2.

Robertson's goal v Arsenal

Robertson’s output has mirrored his displays towards the end of 2019/20.

The Scot produced one goal, four assists and one clean sheet in Liverpool’s final six matches of the campaign.

Combined with his start to 2020/21, he has now recorded attacking or defensive returns in each of his last nine Gameweek appearances.

Increased attacking threat

The underlying statistics suggest Robertson has stepped up his influence in the final third this term.

His minutes-per-shot average has quickened from 141.5 to 90, while his ratio for shots in the box has risen from 0.3 to 1.0 per match.

Furthermore, his number of crosses per appearance has almost doubled, from 5.8 to 11.0.

More away returns?

A visit to Aston Villa gives Robertson the chance to deliver again for his owners in FPL.

He scored in a 2-1 win in the corresponding fixture last season.

Liverpool, meanwhile, were the most reliable defence away from home in 2019/20, delivering eight clean sheets.

That suggests Robertson can extend his run of returns, with the possibility of points at both ends of the pitch.
