Liverpool are currently in the midst of their worst injury crisis in living memory. Jürgen Klopp has lost 13 players to injury since the start of the campaign, some of them twice. The issue has worsened as Andy Robertson has picked up an injury which has ruled him out of a Scotland tie.
Liverpool injury crisis
13 players injured in one season is bad luck, 13 players injured inside the first two months of the season is absurd.
The Reds have lost star signing Thiago Alcantara to illness and injury.
Naby Keita has had a spell on the sidelines, as has Alisson Becker.
The defence has been the worst hit in the team. Virgil van Dijk is out for the season, Joe Gomez will miss most of it.
Trent Alexander-Arnold has also been ruled out of our next game, a visit from Leicester city.
Andy Robertson injury
In the past week Scotland’s men’s team has qualified for their first major tournament in 23 years.
The nation’s captain played all 120 minutes as Steve Clarke’s side won their play off final.
After the game Andy Robertson complained of a hamstring injury – saying the muscle seized up on him.
The issue appears to have been more than just cramp as the left back wasn’t named in the Scotland squad to face Slovakia.
What RTK has to say
Just our luck hey.
If the Andy Robertson injury is serious enough to keep him out of the Leicester City visit then the Reds will be without the entire back four.
Hopefully his problem isn’t anything major and it can be solved by just resting up.
To start against Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes without our first choice back four would put us right onto the back foot.
