Reds ready to welcome back Robertson

Match Preview
Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson is expected to come back into the side for the crucial Premier League visit of Chelsea.

Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson is expected to come back into the side for the crucial Premier League visit of Chelsea.

The Scot was suspended for the midweek 2-0 Champions League win over Porto but should reclaim his place at the first time of asking.

That means James Milner, Robertson’s stand-in on Tuesday, is available for a midfield role – giving manager Jurgen Klopp a selection dilemma as Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson have both performed well in the last two matches.

Fellow midfielder Adam Lallana is expected to return to the squad after missing the last two games with a muscle injury.

The fit-again Joe Gomez is also available after being named on the bench in midweek but is unlikely to start, with Dejan Lovren set to continue in central defence alongside Virgil van Dijk.
