Liverpool’s Defensive Troubles Worsen As Robertson Picks Up Injury On International Duty

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp will be wondering what he’s done to deserve his current run of bad lucks as news of another injury to a Liverpool player reaches his ears.

The latest in a long list of injuries and absentees is Scotland captain Andy Robertson who is being reported to have picked up a hamstring injury.

Scotland manager Steve Clarke has revealed that the Liverpool left-back is unlikely to play against Slovakia in today’s UEFA Nations League fixture after Robertson’s hamstring became tight following Scotland’s Euro 2020 play-off win over Serbia on Thursday night.

Robertson played all 120 minutes of that game and it now means that Jurgen Klopp is without his entire first-choice backline after with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk’s all looking at spells on the sidelines.

If Robertson doesn’t make it back for Liverpool’s clash with Leicester City at Anfield on November 22nd, Jurgen Klopp will be forced to play a completely untested backline against one of the league’s most prolific goal-scorers in Jamie Vardy.
