Jurgen Klopp must be having kittens about Liverpool’s injury situation.
Andrew Robertson wasn’t fit enough to make the squad today due to a calf issue, which put us down to one senior left-back available…
Ragnar Klavan was actually selected to start ahead of Alberto Moreno, but the Spaniard did his thigh in the warmup and had to be replaced on the bench by 17-year-old Rafa Camacho.

Now, Robertson faces a race against time to be ready for Tuesday night’s crunch clash with Manchester City, as does his usual understudy Moreno.
The Scot is one of the most important players in our starting XI and this news is quite worrying.
The thought of Moreno or Klavan up against Raheem Sterling for 90 minutes at the Etihad makes us very anxious, but then again, so did the thought of Leroy Sane running at Trent Alexander-Arnold – but the teenager passed with flying colours.
With Emre Can, Adam Lallana, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip already injured for the foreseeable however, this is the last thing Klopp needs right now.
