As per reports, left-back Andy Robertson is set to miss Liverpool's Champions League match with Ajax Amsterdam on Tuesday after suffering a suspected knee injury. The Scottish international played the full game as the Reds were beaten 4-1 by Napoli in the opening fixture of their UCL campaign on Wednesday night in Italy. 

However, the Scotland captain will not be included in the Group A clash with the Dutch team at Anfield after picking up a knock on what is reported to be his left knee by Liverpool. More information on Andy Robertson's injury could be provided by manager Jurgen Klopp as he addresses the media before the Ajax game tomorrow. 

If Robertson sits out against Ajax, he will be replaced by Kostas Tsimikas will be deployed as the left-back. Tsimikas has had one start and four substitute appearances in the Premier League so far this season. The full-back has also dished out two assists in Liverpool's emphatic 9-0 victory over Bournemouth last month.

Talking about Liverpool’s 4-1 loss, Klopp addressed that team needs to ‘reinvent’ themselves to get positive results on the field in the post-match press conference. “You don’t think a lot after the game, you react more,” Liverpool boss said. “We have to kind of reinvent ourselves because basic things were not there. It’s a difficult period, no doubt about that.

He further talked about the team is not committing on the defensive especially when they are efficient on the other end. He said, “If you’re not playing exceptionally well, you still can defend on a really high level. We should be able to do that. The start of the game doesn’t help. If we want to defend better and concede a penalty after three minutes and the next one, obviously you cannot exactly do that. Tonight we were caught in-between.

“But, still, it’s the job to do. That’s what I mean. It’s not that we have to reinvent a new kind of football. You always try to improve but in this moment obviously everybody would be happy if we could just play similar stuff to what we used to play,” he further added.
