Jurgen Klopp talks how Liverpool will deal with the left-back injury crisis

The Reds have been out of action since mid-October after left-back Andrew Robertson had to undergo surgery on a shoulder injury sustained during international action.

KostasTsimikas has performed very well in Robertson’s absence in recent months but also suffered a broken collarbone in Liverpool’s 0-0 draw with Arsenal. Ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League clash against Burnley on Boxing Day, Klopp admitted the lack of natural left-backs would make things “really difficult” for his side:”We’ll see. When will Joey [Gomez] be able to play all the next matches before Robbo comes back?” Klopp:

“kostí has ​​been out for a while, so I don’t know, we’ll have to see. I haven’t had time to think about it now, but I’m sure someone will take that position. Obviously, it is very painful and difficult for us. “Sometimes there are injuries and we all accept that, but a broken bone is not good because it takes a long time. What happened to Lobo was another injury, but we all know it takes a long time.”

“We all know we need luck right now and now we’ve got Joey and we just have to cover him and make sure he’s always ready to play.”Joe Gomez switched Tsimikas to full-back in the second half of Liverpool’s game against Arsenal, raising the possibility that he could replace the Greece international and Andy Robertson if his progress does not come naturally.
