Andy Robertson was injured against Belgium during this week’s international fixtures.
James Pearce provided an update on the injury on his Twitter account as he said:

The Scottish captain was removed with a hamstring issue but as he walked around the pitch after the full-time whistle it was hoped that he would be fit for this weekend’s game against Arsenal.
We do have a very capable back up in Kostas Tsimikas and if it means that our No.26 gets a weekend off so that he can fully recover, that may not be a bad thing.
What we can’t do with is a lengthy period on the sidelines for the 27-year-old and can only hope it’s a minor issue.
Jurgen Klopp might need to put an hour aside for his injury update in the pre-Arsenal press conference after a troublesome international period.
To remain positive though, this and all the other recent injuries don’t seem too long-term as of yet and so we should have a host of players returning from injury soon.
