Latest Liverpool injury updates and return timelines, along with the latest news on Andy Robertson before the Brighton match…



Liverpool injury update and return dates revealed prior to Brighton match. Jürgen Klopp faces uncertainty following Andy Robertson’s recent injury during the international break.


The latest injury news for Liverpool is causing concern for manager Jürgen Klopp ahead of their upcoming match against Brighton. Left-back Andy Robertson suffered a knock during the international break, forcing him to be substituted in Scotland’s game against Northern Ireland. Liverpool fans are anxiously awaiting updates on Robertson’s condition as they approach a crucial stage of the season.


Liverpool’s return to action will see them face Brighton and Hove Albion, with a victory potentially propelling them back to the top of the Premier League table. Meanwhile, league leaders Arsenal will take on Manchester City in a highly anticipated match that could have significant implications for the title race.


Liverpool have been plagued by injury problems throughout the 2023/24 season, and the latest player to be sidelined is Andy Robertson.


Andy Robertson, the 30-year-old Scottish player, was forced to leave the pitch in the 37th minute during Scotland’s 1-0 loss to Northern Ireland. Following the match, Robertson has undergone scans at the AXA Training Centre to assess the extent of his injury. Liverpool remains hopeful that he will not face another prolonged period on the sidelines, especially considering his recent return from a shoulder injury sustained while on international duty with Scotland in 2023.


Unfortunately, the exact date of Robertson’s return is currently unknown.


On a more positive note, Portuguese forward Diogo Jota has provided some encouragement for Klopp during the international break. Jota suffered a knee injury during the match against Brentford, and initial fears were that he could be out for several months. However, he has made significant progress in his recovery and may be available for upcoming fixtures.


Although Jota will miss the Brighton fixture, there is a possibility that he could return to face Manchester United the following weekend. This news will undoubtedly boost Klopp and his team as they seek redemption against the Red Devils following their dramatic 4-3 defeat in the FA Cup.


The potential return date for Jota is set for the Manchester United match on April 7th.


Midfielder Curtis Jones is set to make his comeback against Brighton after recovering from an ankle injury sustained in February. However, vice-captain Trent Alexander-Arnold may not be ready for this fixture, although there is a possibility he could feature against United. Darwin Núñez is expected to be fit to play, despite withdrawing from the Uruguayan squad.


The availability of goalkeeper Alisson Becker remains uncertain. He has been out for a similar duration as Jones and Jota, but there is no confirmed date for his return.


Spanish midfielders Thiago Alcântara and Stefan Bajčetić are still sidelined, although Bajčetić is making progress in his recovery and has shared training photos on social media. Klopp previously mentioned that Bajčetić is going through his own “pre-season” as anticipation grows for his return.


Unfortunately, it appears that Thiago may have played his last game for Liverpool, similar to his teammate Joël Matip who is still recovering from a serious knee injury. Youngster Ben Doak is also unlikely to feature with the first team for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus.
