Robertson is one of them who does not feature - and is not on the bench.

Kostas Tsimikas instead starts at left-back, while Mo Salah is among the substitutes.

According to Sky Sports reporter Patrick Davidson, who spoke to Klopp before kick-off, Robertson is not injured.

The Scotland captain has instead been given the evening to rest up ahead of the FA Cup final vs Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday.

Davidson wrote on Twitter: “Robertson given the night off. No injury.”
