Liverpool have received “good news” regarding the recent injury picked up by Andy Robertson this week, according to an update from journalist James Pearce.

The Reds have been dogged by fitness issues throughout this season, with so many key figures missing at different times, and Robertson has been one of them.

The Scot injured his shoulder earlier in the campaign, ruling him out for a number of months, and he has now suffered another scare on international duty.

Robertson limped out of Scotland’s 1-0 defeat at home to Northern Ireland on Wednesday night, leading to immediate concerns that he would again be missing for a significent chunk of action at a vital time in the season.

Taking to X on Thursday afternoon, however, Pearce provided a promising update regarding Robertson’s injury, saying he should only be out for a matter of “days”:

“Good news on Andy Robertson. Scan clear so will be a case of days rather than weeks out. Also includes an update on Trent Alexander-Arnold, who is stepping up his rehab.”

Our thoughts on Pearce’s update on Robertson’s injury…

This is brilliant news for Liverpool, considering what an influential figure Robertson is at Anfield, whether it be through his quality from left-back, his leadership or his vast experience.

It looks likely that the 30-year-old will be absent for the Reds’ home clash with Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, but it doesn’t look as though he will be out for a problematic amount of time.

On the plus side, Joe Gomez has been superb filling in for Robertson at left-back this season, so he should continue there while his teammate is out – he could even justify starting ahead of him when both are fit – while Kostas Tsimikas is also a solid option.

Robertson’s winning mentality is going to be needed during a crunch period in the season, however, with his experience of past title battles hopefully standing him in good stead to help Liverpool get over the finish line.

His defensive nous and attacking quality can both come to the fore at critical times, as they have done so many times before, and it is a massive relief that he won’t miss the run-in.
