Liverpool’s chances to play Andrew Robertson as a starter against Arsenal seem slim. The reason is that the player is injured.
Andrew Robertson is one of the Reds players in charge of international action this November. He was also played when the Scottish football national team met Denmark in the final match of the Group E phase of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, Tuesday (16/11) early morning WIB.
Scotland did manage to win 2-0 over Denmark at Hamden Park. That is, they will play in the World Cup playoffs. However, the Liverpool core player had to be withdrawn in the 80th minute due to an injury.
Reported by sportsmole, Andrew Robertson has suffered a hamstring injury. Meanwhile, the 27-year-old soccer player will really need his services this weekend by the Premier League giants against Arsenal, Sunday (21/11) night WIB.
While the player only had about five days to get rid of the problem in the muscle. If not fit in the next few days, the chances of playing will be slim for Liverpool. On the other hand, this clearly makes the Red Merseyside football club dizzy. The reason is, Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane also suffered injuries while strengthening their country in the international break and could not necessarily be played.
If later Andrew Robertson really can’t play, the Premier League giants still have Kostas Tsimikas who can replace his position against Arsenal. However, players from Greece are not of the same quality as Robertson at left back.
For your information, Andrew Robertson has played in 12 games this season. 8 of them in the Premier League as a starter by recording 1 assist. It is worth waiting for whether Liverpool can play him back from the early minutes or vice versa, Jurgen Klopp will entrust him to Kostas Tsimikas.
