- Andy Robertson handed Liverpool the lead against Burnley on Saturday
- The left-back looped a superb header over Nick Pope after Fabinho’s pass
- The BT Sport team were wowed by the goal, with Peter Crouch left speechless

The full-back scored only his second goal of the season with the effort, expertly looping his effort over Nick Pope after a pin-point floated pass from Fabinho.
On punditry duty for BT Sport, Rio Ferdinand said the midfielder’s ball was ‘fantastically weighted’ before handing over to Crouch.

Peter Crouch was left speechless after Robertson’s header, which wasn’t enough for a win
‘In all honesty I can’t explain it. What a fullback is doing heading the ball like that I’ll never know,’ the former England and Liverpool striker said.
‘What a header that is. Honestly, he’s set it outside the far post and it’s textbook because if he doesn’t quite get it right it’s a tap-in for Mane at the back post.
‘But my god he did get it right. It’s one of the best headers I’ve seen. Unbelievable’
Robertson’s header was only his second goal of the Premier League season for the Scot
The 26-year-old has been one of the key men in Jurgen Klopp’s world-dominating side
Ferdinand added: ‘Watch Van Dijk here, he’s got his hands on head. He couldn’t believe that Robertson had scored that goal, funny!’
World champion, Champions League winner and now about to lift the Premier League, Robertson and full-back counterpart Trent Alexander-Arnold have been key in Jurgen Klopp’s dominant system.
Robertson’s goal wasn’t enough for victory on Saturday however, with Burnley equalising after Jay Rodriquez’s 69th minute winner despite Reds domination.
Liverpool can afford to coast through the remaining three games of the season after wrapping up the title after Manchester City lost at Chelsea in June.
