Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has dubbed Andy Robertson's injury return "very important" as the Scotland captain looks to play his part in the English Premier League climax. 

Robertson, 30, was withdrawn just 37 minutes into Scotland's international friendly match with Northern Ireland last Tuesday because of an ankle problem. It was initially thought his setback could leave him sidelined for weeks, but after missing Sunday's win over Brighton, Klopp is hopeful his left-back can return to first team action when Liverpool host Sheffield United tomorrow. 

Speaking ahead of the clash against the league's bottom side, Klopp provided an update on his lengthy injury list which includes; Robertson, Curtis Jones, Alisson Becker, Diogo Jota, Joel Matip, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Thiago. 

He said: "Curtis is in training, full training, and is in contention. Yeah, that's it pretty much.

"The other boys [are] doing well. Diogo and Trent are together in a group, which helps both, but [it] looks like from next week on they will be hopefully in parts of team training, and then we will see the rest.

"Ali is with the goalkeeper coaches, so I just see them through the fence, but that looks good as well. I think in his mind as well, next week parts of team training.

"Curtis is back, that doesn't mean he can play 90 minutes, he can play a few minutes," he added before being asked if Robertson would play any part.

"Yeah, and (he’s) very important, by the way," he replied. 

Liverpool are leading the English Premier League standings with nine games remaining. And are still on course to complete a Treble in Klopp's final season at Anfield. 

The Reds bagged their first trophy following an extra-time victory over Chelsea in the League Cup final, and are through to the Europa League quarter-finals, where they will face Italian Serie A outfit, Atalanta.
