Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson says he is over the dead leg injury he picked up against Aston Villa and will be fit to start at Brighton on Wednesday.
Robertson suffered a knock late on in the game on Sunday after a clash with Villa’s Jack Grealish. He played on until Neco Williams replaced him injury time.
When speaking to Liverpoolfc.com on Monday, Roberston was asked if he would be able to face Brighton.
“All good, yeah.
“I’ve just got a bit of a dead calf just in the challenge with Grealish with about 20 minutes to go, just a tangle of legs and I got a dead calf. We’ll be good to go, it’s a hectic period [and] we need to keep as fresh as we can.
“Obviously after 13 weeks off we’ve now got three weeks of a lot of games, so that’s what the squad is for. We made four subs today and every single one of them had a massive impact and we made three changes to the starting line-up, so we’ll wait and see what the manager does on Wednesday.
“I’ll be good to go and hopefully he picks me and hopefully we can have another positive performance.”
It was Liverpool’s third clean sheet in their fourth game since returning to action in June. Sadio Mané and Curtis Jones scored the goals to see Villa off by a 2-0 scoreline in the end.
The Reds need four wins from their last five matches to break Manchester City’s 100-point record haul in the Premier League from two seasons ago. Let’s hope they can take all three points against Brighton on Wednesday night.
