Liverpool dealt blow for Brighton clash as regular starter ruled out with injury

Andy Robertson is reportedly unavailable for Liverpool as they prepare to face Brighton.

Andy Robertson will be unavailable for Liverpool against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday, reports suggest.

According to The Athletic, the left-back will again be absent for the Reds.

Robertson suffered a knee injury in Jurgen Klopp’s side’s 4-1 loss to Napoli in the Champions League earlier this month.

As a result, he was sidelined for the 2-1 victory over Ajax before the international break - and had to pull out of Scotland duty.

Klopp previously admitted that Robertson would not be available until the campaign recommenced.

But as Liverpool prepare for their first Premier League game in almost a month - with fixtures against Wolves and Chelsea postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II - Robertson will not feature against Brighton at Anfield.

Instead, Kostas Tsimikas will continue to deputise on the left-hand side of defence.
