Liverpool injury update: Andrew Robertson, Cody Gakpo and Stefan Bajcetic latest news and return dates

liverpool have been handed a fresh injury blow during the international break.

Andrew Robertson went off during Scotland’s defeat in Spain with a painful-looking shoulder problem.

The left-back joins Cody Gakpo and Stefan Bajcetic in being labelled a doubt for the upcoming Merseyside derby against Everton.

thiago Alcantara is another player on the comeback trail while Caoimhin Kelleher has recently suffered an injury.

Cody Gakpo

There is hope Gakpo will be back for the Everton meeting having almost made his return from a knee injury before the international break.

“He is already out of the brace,” Klopp revealed before the draw at Brighton. “[He] walks normal around, so from all the very, very bad opportunities and possibilities injury-wise, I think he nearly got the best but is still injured.”

Stefan Bajcetic

After a number of months out, young midfielder Bajcetic saw his return cut short after only one appearance due to a fresh problem.

Liverpool hope to have him back after the internationals but that is perhaps in hope rather than expectation.

Thiago Alcantara

Klopp recently confirmed a second setback in Thiago’s comeback from a hip injury, although his fresh problem is not an aggravation of the original injury.

While the midfielder remains in light training, given the setback was “annoying” but “not massive”, it remains to be seen how long he will be out for.

Caoimhin Kelleher

A training ground injury kept Kelleher out of Liverpool’s two final games before the break, as well as the goalkeeper’s Republic of Ireland duty.

National team boss Stephen Kenny remarked Kelleher required 12 stitches on his knee, leaving his return for Everton in doubt.
