Liverpool dealt injury blow in pre-season friendly against Bilbao


Liverpool waits anxiously for an update on Andy Robertson's injury after player limped-off the pitch with help from staff during preseason friendly against Athletic Bilbao

Jurgen Klopp and  Liverpool faces an anxious wait for news on Andy Robertson's fitness after the Liverpool left-back hobbled away from Anfield with a worrying ankle injury on Sunday.

Klopp has been haunted by defensive injuries in the last 12 months, and won't fancy a fresh one with the 2021-22 Premier League campaign less than a week away. 

Liverpool were 1-0 up against Athletic Bilbao in a pre-season friendly when Robertson went in for a challenge on Alex Berenguer by the corner flag. 

There was a loud clatter as they players collided, with the Scottish star left rolling around in agony clutching his ankle.

The Reds' XI were at the scene as Robertson buried his face in the turf, later walking off slowly with his weight on two physios.

Berenguer survived the challenge fine enough to score an equaliser in the second-half, tucking home Inaki Williams' cross to leave the scores at 1-1 at full-time.

Liverpool led 1-0 through Diogo Jota at half-time.
