The two left-backs enjoy a healthy rivalry in competing for the left-back spot in the side and it is clear that both have the trust of Jurgen Klopp.
Indeed, when Tsimikas has played this season he has done really well for Liverpool, with some even suggesting that he should remain in the team.
Robertson, though, has upped his game further too and Aldridge says the Greek is part of the reason for that:
John Aldridge on Robbo’s form:
“You have to thank Tsimikas for that too - he has pushed Robertson to his limits. That is exactly why Liverpool used to win so many trophies, they always had people in reserve pushing first-teamers to keep their place.” #awlive [liverpool echo] pic.twitter.com/5B3VpVJsxo
Anfield Watch Verdict
Tsimikas is a very handy player to have around and would be good enough to play for most Premier League sides.
However, he is at Liverpool and has a top player to compete with him in Robertson.
As Aldridge says, though, that is what it should be like at the club.
