Klopp provides injury updates on 2 Liverpool players who had some issues after the Leicester game

Injury updates on Robertson and Elliott

Liverpool claimed their fourth successive Premier League win on their return to Anfield on Friday night against Leicester City. In the post-match interview, Jurgen Klopp reflected on the Reds’ victory and also on the injuries of Andy Robertson and Harvey Elliott.

Liverpool had, what we could say, a lucky win over Leicester. In the 4th minute of the game, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall scored to put the visitors in the steering wheel. However, what came next was unexpected.

Leicester’s center-back Wout Faes’ two own goals became a disaster for the Foxes which cost them a sweet victory. But 3 points is what mattered to close the gap at the Top 4 and somehow the Merseyside club managed to pull out the maximum points.

Robertson and Elliott vs Leicester

Injuries are constantly a thing to worry about for the Liverpool squad. This time it is their left-back Andy Robertson and midfielder Harvey Elliott.

Robertson was not a part of the World Cup, so the player came fresh and fit. The 28-year-old played for the full 90 minutes in the first two games for the Reds after the club games resumed. However, the Scottish defender was not able to play the full match on Friday. After 60 minutes, Andy was seen lying on the ground and calling the physio. Thus, after this incident, Robertson had to be taken off.

Adding on to the Reds’ miseries, Harvey Elliott got injured as well. Though he played for almost 86 minutes, the midfielder was seen having some trouble during the last few minutes of the match. The 19-year-old limped off after having troubles with his ankle.

Jurgen Klopp on the players in the post-match interview

Jurgen Klopp was seen as concerned about his players’ injuries in the post-match interview. Though the manager also shared a funny incident related to this. Klopp said:

“Funnily enough, Harvey, before the game, injured Robbo a little bit. In our warm-up game, he hit him with a knee at the hip, so it was a dead leg.”

Klopp further added that he could have played more but at one point the muscle closed and he couldn’t carry on.

Klopp even shared his feeling about Harvey’s injury. The Reds manager said:

“Harvey got a knock, which was quite painful, but when you see the situation because it is clear that’s painful, but that’s it, I think.”

Andy Robertson and Harvey Elliott join the long list of injured players in the Liverpool squad. As of now, it is unsure whether both players will be a part of Klopp’s team when they face Brentford on Monday.
