West Ham United star Jarrod Bowen has named Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson on Twitter as the best defender he has played against.
Bowen, who can operate as a winger, midfielder or forward, made the comment about the 26-year-old Scotland international left-back during a Q&A session on West Ham’s official Twitter page.
While many would have expected a different Liverpool player to be named by the former Hull City star – Virgil van Dijk – the 23-year-old has actually named Robertson.

During the 2018-19 campaign, the former Hull star provided 11 assists in 36 league games for the Reds, according to WhoScored.
Bowen – who played with Robertson at Hull – has scored one goal in four Premier League matches for West Ham since his move from the Tigers in the January transfer window, according to WhoScored.
