The sight of Andy Robertson limping off for Scotland in midweek was concerning, but some promising news has emerged regarding the severity of his ankle injury.

The Independent‘s Richard Jolly, even suggests a return against Sheffield United could be on the cards:

“The left-back underwent scans after being forced to go off on Tuesday but they confirmed that he suffered no major damage.

“Robertson is set to miss Sunday’s home match against Brighton but could return for Thursday’s meeting with Sheffield United, and should to fit for the trip to Manchester United on 7 April.”

Other sources have indicated likewise, with an absence of ‘days’ rather than weeks anticipated.

While we can all but rule out Robertson for Sunday’s Premier League meeting with Brighton at Anfield, this has to be considered good news.

What we’re watching…

A spectacular new mural in tribute to Robbie Fowler was recently unveiled and we had the opportunity to talk to God himself.

From his nickname, to Liverpool’s next generation of players, plus the next manager and Jurgen Klopp‘s impending departure, we covered a lot of bases and Robbie was in great form.

You can easily see how much the mural means to him!
