Liverpool: Andy Robertson in race for health forward of sport in opposition to Arsenal
Andy Robertson faces a race to be fit for Liverpool’s Premier League clash against Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday.
The Scottish captain underwent a scan on Tuesday that allayed fears that he injured his Achilles tendon in a World Cup qualifying win over Denmark.
However, the tension in the muscle means Liverpool will continue to watch him closely. He is rated “50-50” for playing against Mikel Arteta’s side.
Should Robertson, who was substituted on by Steve Clarke in the 79th minute on Monday evening, be absent, Kostas Tsimikas will start as a left-back.
The Greek international has impressed in previous appearances for Robertson this season.
Captain Jordan Henderson is hoping to be available for Arsenal following his early return to Kirkby from England due to groin tightness. Sadio Mane, who was hit in the rib for Senegal, has been back in full training since then.
