Andy Robertson ‘praying’ over calf injury

Liverpool defender Andy Robertson says he is “praying” he can make a quick recovery after suffering a calf injury during Tuesday night’s win over Barcelona.

The Scotland international started the game at Anfield but was forced off at half-time after a collision with former Reds forward Luis Suarez.

Suarez appeared to flick out his leg at the left-back although Robertson was able to carry on until the break before being replaced by midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

The Dutchman then went on to grab two goals alongside Divock Orig,i but fans are now worried about Robertson’s fitness for the rest of the season.

Liverpool still have to play one final Premier League game against Wolves and can still win the title, with Manchester City favourites due to their one-point advantage.

Robertson is set for a scan and hopes he can recover quickly as he tries to help the Reds on two fronts.

“It doesn’t feel the best at the minute, but I’ll get a scan tomorrow,” Robertson told the club’s website on Wednesday night.

“They’re confident that it’s just a nerve or whatever and it can be maybe a couple of days, but we’ll wait and see. “We can’t really comment until I get the scan, but I’ll be saying my prayers.”

Liverpool are 1.33 to beat Wolves on the final day, while the draw is 5.25 and Wanderers are 9.50. Jurgen Klopp’s men last lost at home in September in the League Cup and punters can back Origi to carry on his good form and score first at odds of 6.00.
