Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson is a major doubt ahead of the Premier League clash with Arsenal at home after he went off injured during the second half of the World Cup 2022 qualifier between his Scotland side and visitors Denmark at Hampden Park in Glasgow on Monday night.

Scotland skipper Robertson was subbed off for Nottingham Forest defender Scott McKenna with eleven (11) minutes remaining as his team tried to preserve the advantage given to them by the first half header from Hearts FC of Scotland vice-skipper John Souttar off the assist from Leeds United skipper Liam Cooper.

Denmark had a very good record in the qualifiers ahead of the Scotland as they were hoping to make it ten wins from ten games with an away victory over the Steve Clarke-led team. The Danes had amassed a record of 27 maximum points from nine games before they faced Robertson and his Scotland teammates.

Scotland were able to clinch their 2-0 win over the Danes with the second goal scored by Southampton striker Che Adams four minutes from time for hi second goal in as many qualifiers. The Saints attacker had been on target as Scotland beat hosts Moldova 2-0 in the first of their two qualifiers this month.

Liverpool have a lot of injury problems ahead of the visit of Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend and the injury to left-back Robertson is an additional source of worry for manager Klopp and his coaching staffs.

If Robertson is not able to make it in time for the Arsenal game, Klopp will definitely turn his attention to Greek national team star KostantinosTsimikas, an £11m signing from Olympiakos in the Greek top flight at the start of last season. Tsimikashas already deputised for Robertson in some games this season and he might be called on to do same against Arsenal on Saturday evening.
