UNCOVERED: Liverpool signing Tsimikas bettered Robertson against one Prem star

Liverpool signing Kostas Tsimikas already boasts past success against Premier League opponents.

The left-back has completed his move to Anfield after the Reds agreed a deal worth around £12million with Olympiakos for the 24-year-old.

And against Liverpool's nemesis Adama Traore, Tsimikas came out on top in Olympiakos' Europa League defeat to Wolves last week. The 24-year-old helped limit Traore to just two successful dribbles from his eight attempted during his 65 minutes on the pitch, reports the Mirror.

That 25 per cent success rate is the winger's lowest in terms of successful dribbles since posting the same number of two successes from eight against Burnley in August last year.

In January, Traore tormented Reds left-back Andy Robertson and was successful with 15 of his 17 attempted dribbles down the Wolves right, with one leading to an assist for Raul Jiminez's equaliser.

Robertson even later admitted that the winger had "ripped him apart" during the game.
