Andy Robertson reportedly suffers injury despite Scotland win

The injuries keep piling up for Liverpool and the latest concern for the Reds is Andy Robertson after he pulled up with a muscle injury during Scotland’s 2-0 win over Denmark.

Sadio Mane and Jordan Henderson are already doubtful to face Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday evening and now Robbo is a doubt as well, with the Scotland skipper being withdrawn in the 79th minute.

He pulled up with a hamstring issue and while the severity of the issues hasn’t been confirmed yet, it doesn’t look good.

Andy Robertson has been in poor form recently and was awful against West Ham but he remains one of Jurgen Klopp’s most important players despite his struggle for form.

I argued before the West Ham game that Kostas Tsimikas deserved to start and I was disappointed when Robbo was given the nod but now, if Andy Robertson is injured, the Greek international can finally start another Premier League game.

Remarkably, Tsimikas has started 6 games for Liverpool, won 6 and kept 6 clean sheets. In fact, the former Olympiakos star created 7 chances for his country during their 1-1 draw with Kosovo.

If he gets a start at Anfield against Arsenal, Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to see him replicate that and with the form that Mohamed Salah is in, there’s a strong chance the Egyptian bags a goal or two.

Hopefully, Robertson’s injury isn’t too serious and that he returns to Kirkby Training Centre ahead of the Gunners’ visit to Merseyside this weekend in what is a must-win game for the Reds.
