Liverpool have been handed a big boost on the injury front with the news that first choice left-back Andy Robertson is ready to return to action ahead of the Premier League clash with Chelsea this weekend. According to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, Robertson is in contention for the home clash with Chelsea. Klopp said this in his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of the Chelsea game.
In their second game of the new season, Liverpool beat Burnley 2-0 at home thanks to the goals from the aforementioned Jota and Sadio Mane either side of the halftime break. Robertson also missed out on the game against the Clarets due to the injury mentioned above. In his place, Klopp opted for Greek player Kostantinos Tsimikas at left-back for both league games against Norwich City and Burnley.
The return of Robertson for the Chelsea game is a big boost for Liverpool with the two teams currently occupying the top positions on the league table. Liverpool and Chelsea are joint second on the league table after a return of six points from the first two matches with five goals scored.
Liverpool and Chelsea are behind league leaders West Ham United on goal difference after the Hammers thrashed 10-man Leicester City 4-1 at home on Monday night in what was the last game of week two as far as the new Premier League campaign is concerned. Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur are the other two teams with six points from two games this season.
