Andy Robertson limped off the pitch in the final stages of Scotland’s 2-0 win over Denmark on Monday. The Scots secured a spot in the playoffs but the Liverpool defender might miss a crucial league game.

According to the Athletic, Robertson has undergone a hamstring scan on Tuesday. The injury will not keep Robertson out for too long, but his presence against Arsenal is rated “50-50”.

Since becoming Liverpool’s first choice for the left-back position during the 2017-18 campaign, Robertson has developed into a key player at Anfield. The versatile defender is almost always present in the Reds’ starting XI.

However, Kostas Tsimikas has proved himself as a strong backup for Robertson this season. If the Scottish defender misses the game, Tsimikas will be Jurgen Klopp’s first choice to replace him.

Robertson is only the latest addition to the injury list at Liverpool. Roberto Firmino, James Milner, Naby Keita, Joe Gomez, Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones, and Sadio Mane are all out with injuries. Klopp faces the déjà vu of another injury crisis that ruined his side’s run last season.

The Reds are currently fourth in the Premier League with 22 points from their 11 matches. After their Saturday’s match against Arsenal, Liverpool will face Porto in a Champions League game on Wednesday.
