Here is your latest update from Liverpool injuries and return flight dates…
Liverpool are sweating over Robertson after he returned early from Scotland duty due to a shoulder injury, leaving him in major doubt about whether he will face Everton pending the results of their investigation.
“Obviously he injured his shoulder,” said Scotland coach Steve Clarke. “Let’s take a look [he’ll] Of course he goes back to his club.”
There are hopes that Gakpo will be back for the Everton game after almost returning from a knee injury before the international break.
“He’s already come out of the double pack,” Klopp revealed before the draw in Brighton. “[He] is going pretty normal, so I think despite all the very, very bad odds and possibilities in terms of injuries, he’s almost made the best of it, but he’s still injured.”
After a break of several months, the young midfielder Bajcetic had to cut short his return after just one appearance due to a new problem.
Liverpool hope to have him back after the internationals, but that may be more of a hope than an expectation.
Klopp recently confirmed a second setback in Thiago’s comeback from a hip injury, although his new problem is not an aggravation of the original injury.
The midfielder is still in light training as the setback was “annoying” but “not massive”, but it remains to be seen how long he will be out.
A training ground injury prevented Kelleher from taking part in Liverpool’s final two games before the break, with the goalkeeper also having to feature for the Republic of Ireland.
National team boss Stephen Kenny noted that Kelleher required twelve stitches on his knee, putting his return to Everton in doubt.
