Liverpool are preparing to host Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday, March 7th.

Ahead of the game, Jurgen Klopp has revealed why Andrew Robertson was left out of the squad.

Speaking to BT Sport, when asked about whether Robertson was not involved because of rotation or a fitness issue, Klopp said: “Something in between. He would have started today but then he felt (something) slightly.

“But it’s all good, it will be fine for Wednesday. But not for today. So we didn’t want to have him on the bench and see Robbo and think, ‘Maybe we can bring you (on).’ It wouldn’t make sense today. That’s the reason and he will be fine.”
