Andy Robertson: Liverpool FC

As Liverpool gears up for their upcoming clash against Brighton & Hove Albion, manager Jürgen Klopp has provided a comprehensive Liverpool injury update. With a mix of injury concerns and recoveries, Klopp’s insights offer fans a glimpse into the team’s preparation for the crucial Premier League encounter.

The spotlight falls on left-back Andy Robertson, who was withdrawn during Scotland’s friendly against Northern Ireland due to an ankle issue. Klopp reassures fans that while Robertson won’t train immediately, the situation isn’t as dire as initially feared. “Robbo, we take it a little bit day by day so we will see,” Klopp stated. “He will not train today but it’s not as bad. So that’s fine.”

In midfield, Curtis Jones is on the path to recovery, returning to training, albeit uncertain for Sunday’s match. Meanwhile, Ibrahima Konate and Darwin Nunez are in good shape, with Klopp confirming their readiness for the upcoming fixture against the Seagulls. “Curtis, I am not sure if he is available [for Sunday], but in training,” Klopp remarked. “Ibou was an extra rest day [on Thursday], nothing else. [Nunez] is fine.”

However, the trio of Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Diogo Jota are still undergoing rehabilitation. Klopp remains optimistic about their progress, indicating they are gradually inching closer to team training. “From next week on, step by step I think they will join parts of team training and then team training,” Klopp explained. “They are not too far away but not in yet.”

A significant focus of Klopp’s update was on young talent Stefan Bajcetic’s recovery journey. While sidelined with a long-term injury, Bajcetic has been utilizing his time effectively, maintaining his football intelligence despite the absence of regular play. Klopp praised Bajcetic’s natural footballing acumen, expressing confidence in his eventual return to full training with the senior squad. “Football brain-wise he is a natural so I don’t think he lost anything,” Klopp affirmed. “But rhythm is something else.”

Bajcetic’s imminent return to full training with the U21s signals a positive development in his recovery process. Klopp highlighted Bajcetic’s physical growth and praised his dedication to rehabilitation. “The boy grew, put a few muscles on, looks good,” Klopp noted. “He is a smart kid so I think he will be fine.”

Reflecting on Bajcetic’s journey, Klopp acknowledged the challenges of prolonged injury lay-offs but expressed optimism about his eventual comeback. “He watched definitely a lot of football,” Klopp stated. “It is not that he played with us now regularly, he played early in the season. I forgot that actually, but he did, and then everything went the wrong way.”
