First of all he’s playing in a wing back role yesterday. Second, we have no wide player yesterday, we played with 3 CB and 3 midfield in 2nd half, if there is a player that Bissaka should be in his watch is Robertson. If he has to drift inside to cover for something else then it’s his job to communicate with Pereira that Robertson is your man. Even Gary Neville in the post match said Bissaka got himself confused for his role yesterday with him indicate a possibility of formation changed for the reason.AWB is a right back, not a wing back. A wing back stays wider, a full back gets tighter to his centre back and expects the winger to cover the wide space. Moving to a back 3 in a game like that has its advantages but it's to be expected that players will occasionally be caught out of position.
The fault for the goal lies far more on the players who let the ball run through to an unmarked Llallana.
This is not just about the goal. Robertson should not be getting a lot of space & time to even deliver the ball and he was getting too much space & time yesterday in 2nd half.
