Liverpool injury woes worsen as Andy Robertson becomes latest to pick up problem
Liverpool defender Andy Robertson became the latest player to miss out on the side’s clash against Arsenal on Saturday after limping off for Scotland.
The 27-year-old started as Steve Clarke’s side recorded a 2-0 win over Denmark in the World Cup qualifier at Hampden Park, where they secured their sixth win in a row.
But the left-back appeared to suffer a hamstring injury in the 79th minute after hitting the deck and being replaced by Scott McKenna.
And Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will be fuming as yet another one of his players looks set to miss the crucial Premier League home game against the Gunners.
Liverpool already appear to be without captain Jordan Henderson, who was sent home from the England camp due to injury.
Superstar winger Sadio Mane could also miss the fixture after injuring his ribs while challenging for a header and having to be taken off during Senegal’s clash with Togo on Thursday.
They join the long list of absentees which includes Curtis Jones, James Milner and potentially Joe Gomez and Naby Keita
Meanwhile, Klopp confirmed earlier this month that playmaker Roberto Firmino will definitely miss the Arsenal match.

He said: “Bobby is not good news with a serious hamstring injury, really unfortunate.
“We don’t know exactly how long he will be out but it will be not now after the international break directly. We have to work on that.”

Arsenal are currently in strong form having gone unbeaten in all competitions since August and are only two points behind the Merseyside club in fifth.
Meanwhile, Klopp's side are coming off the back of a 3-2 defeat to West Ham prior to the international break.
