English champions Liverpool have received a big boost on the injury front ahead of the important league game with Leicester City this weekend. The Reds play hosts to Leicester City at Anfield on Sunday in one of the week nine matches in the Premier League and Andy Robertson is expected to feature in the game.

The Liverpool first choice left-back had earlier suffereda hamstring injury scare while playing for Scotland during the 2020 European Championship playoff last week Thursday. Andy Robertson had picked up the slight hamstring problem after playing 120 minutes against the Serbians. The Reds player was able to play his part as he captained his country to qualify for the European Championships slated for next summer.

Robertson and Scotland qualified for the tournament by beating hosts Serbia on penalties after the two teams had played a 1-1 draw at the end of regulation time and extra time. The visitors took the lead at the start of the second half through Celtic striker Ryan Christie and they held on to that advantage until the last minute of regulation time when Real Madrid striker Luka Jovicequalized for Serbia to take the game to extra time.

The game went into penalties when extra time could not separate the two teams. Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic missed the fifth and final penalty for the Serbians to hand Scotland a 5-4 win in the shootout.

After the hamstring injury scare in Serbia, Andy Robertson returned to play 90 minutes against Israel on Wednesday in a UEFA Nations League meeting. Scotland were beaten 1-0 by their hosts in the League 2 Group F encounter. Shakthar Donetsk player Manor Solomon scored the only goal of the game on the stroke of half-time. The result stopped promotion to League 1 for Serbia with Czech Republic clinching promotion at their expense.

Several Liverpool defenders are out of the Leicester City game, but Andy Robertson has shown his fitness in time for the match on Sunday.
