Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson has, on Sunday, become the latest member of an unwanted Premier League club, after being sent for an early bath in his side’s meeting with Tottenham Hotspur.

Spoils shared

Jurgen Klopp’s men of course made their return to action a short time ago.

On the back of news that both Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson had joined the lengthening list of those unavailable for selection, the Reds made the trip to north London, for a Premier League showdown with the aforementioned Spurs.

And what a 90 minutes of football subsequently played out…

A pulsating affair, featuring goals, a red card, penalty shouts and drama throughout, ultimately saw both sides forced to settle for a share of the spoils in a 2-2 stalemate.

Harry Kane and Heung-min Son were the men on target for the hosts, whilst Diogo Jota and Andy Robertson managed to find the net for Klopp’s Liverpool:

Robbo’s unwanted feat

As alluded to above, though, whilst, in the end, his strike proved crucial in Liverpool emerging from the capital with a hard-earned point on Sunday, Andy Robertson also etched his name into the history books of the Premier League for an altogether less positive reason this evening.

The Scot managed to pick up all of a goal, an assist and a red card against Tottenham, a feat rarely managed in the history of the English top-flight.

The last player to do the same was Aleksandar Mitrovic, then of Newcastle United, all the way back in 2016:
