Liverpool’s crisis deepens as Andrew Robertson will be ruled out until at least the end of September with knee injury..

Liverpool confirmed on their official website on Monday that Scotland international left-back Andrew Robertson will miss the Champions League group stage game against Ajax due to a serious left knee injury.

According to Liverpool’s official statement, Robertson has had left knee discomfort as early as last week’s 4-1 defeat to high-flying Serie A side Napoli in the first game of the Champions League group stage.

Liverpool head coach Jürgen Klopp also added at the pre-match press conference that Robertson was surprised to find himself in extreme pain the next day after the game. Later, after a test, the team doctor confirmed that Robertson will be out. He is not expected to return until at least the end of the month.

In addition, English outlet Daily Mail also added that when reporters visited Liverpool’s AXA training base the day before yesterday, Robertson had been photographed leaving with a knee brace on his left foot, confirming that the Scottish national team captain’s injury looked serious.

Greek international Kostas Tsimikas will be expected to replace Robertson in the game against Ajax, but coupled by the news of a ongoing injury crisis, and the club’s bad start to season due to the downturn in form of all players, the news would surely be an unwelcome one for the Reds.

Looking at the team’s squad, although the two key players Diogo Jota and Thiago have just returned from injury recently, but with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson, Curtis Jones, Caoimhin Kelleher, Calvin Ramsay, Ibrahima Konate and Fabio Carvalho all still out with serious injuries, it is inevitable that Klopp will have a selection headache.

Under the shadow of the Chelsea’s current dismissal of Thomas Tuchel, Klopp who have not led Liverpool to victories in two consecutive games in all competitions will definitely feel the pressure as calls for the latter to be sacked has emerged more frequently.
