Andy Robertson is 50-50 to feature in Liverpool’s match against Arsenal on Saturday, after positive news on his hamstring concern.
The Athletic report that Andy Robertson is in a race to be fit to face Arsenal this weekend.
Initial concern of a hamstring injury was calmed after his scan on Tuesday, but he continues to feel tightness in the muscle.
For now, Liverpool are monitoring him closely, and aren’t making any conclusive decisions over whether he’ll be available for the Arsenal match. If he isn’t, Kostas Tsimikas will start.
Robertson was forced to withdraw during Scotland’s World Cup qualifier against Denmark on Monday night.
As usual, Robertson had started at left-wing-back ahead of Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney at left-centre-back. But in the 80th minute, with the game still in the balance at 1-0, he went down injured.
The Liverpool man came off limping and holding his hamstring.
Jordan Henderson is ‘hopeful’ of being available for the Arsenal match, whilst Sadio Mane has returned to full training, so he’s definitely fit.
Henderson returned to Liverpool early for further assessment on an injury picked up in England’s opening game of the break, but it seems he’s doing well.
Mane was substituted in the opening half an hour as Senegal faced Togo on Thursday, after a clash in an aerial duel. From the off, his manager suggested it was nothing too serious.
“Yes, the exit of Sadio Mane destabilized us,” Aliou Cisse admitted.
“He is an important player for the team, we took him off as a precaution and there is nothing serious.”
Divock Origi is another being assessed after a dead leg playing for Belgium.
Naby Keita, Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez, Curtis Jones, James Milner, and Harvey Elliott are all out.
