Liverpool star Andy Robertson has removed any doubts about his fitness ahead of the Reds’ game against Leicester City on Sunday.
There were worries that the Scot was set to miss the clash against the Foxes after he missed Scotland’s final game of the international break, but he has made it clear that there is nothing to worry about.
This is a much-needed boost for the Reds amid their ongoing injury crisis.
“Yeah, I feel fit, feel ready to go,” the left-back told the club’s official website ahead of the Reds’ encounter with Leicester City. “I think I just got a tighter hamstring than usual against Man City, first and foremost.
“Then obviously the game on Thursday for Scotland was a huge one and 120 minutes and penalties had took its toll on me.
“Sunday, I wasn’t ready and just took a bit more time to recover from the game. But there wasn’t any real concerns about it. It was just the [risk] of doing anything worse to the hamstring was quite high on Sunday and the manager had made the call not to play me. Wednesday, I was good to go.
“Now I’m ready to go for Sunday, I feel fully fit, I feel ready. I know some people were quite concerned but I suppose with the amount of injuries we’ve had, people have become used to it. But I’m fully fit and ready to go.”
Liverpool’s defence will be depleted due to the injuries to Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk, but the fact that Robertson will be available is a big boost.
Leicester possess big threats down the wings with the likes of Ayoze Perez, Cengiz Under and Harvey Barnes all posing a real danger to Liverpool’s backline, but the fact that Robertson will be there must be a relief for Jurgen Klopp.
It’s not just a boost in a defensive sense either, the full-back is also one of the Reds’ most potent attacking threats, providing a goal and two assists from left-back already this term.
