After sustaining a hamstring injury in Scotland’s World Cup qualifying win over Denmark, Andrew Robertson is a doubt for Liverpool’s match against Arsenal on Saturday.
Steve Clarke’s side won a resounding victory over Denmark, advancing to a critical World Cup play-off in four months. The Scots’ delight was short-lived, however, as captain Robertson was replaced in the 79th minute after collapsing to the ground.
According to The Times, the left back had a scan on Tuesday to establish the seriousness of the condition, and while Liverpool do not believe the injury is significant, they are not willing to take any chances.
Instead, Kostas Tsimikas will return to Jurgen Klopp’s side as a substitute. This season, the Greece international has proven to be a capable understudy, assisting twice in eight appearances across all competitions.
Liverpool’s injury difficulties from last season appear to be back with a vengeance, as Robertson’s name has been added to a growing list of injuries at Anfield.
