Here is the latest Liverpool injury news before their clash with Sheffield United.

Andy Robertson hurt his ankle on international duty last month and missed the Brighton win as a result. But scans showed no serious damage, leading to hopes of a swift recovery for the left-back.

Jurgen Klopp said last week that Liverpool would take it ‘day by day’ in monitoring Robertson’s recovery.

There was talk that Trent Alexander-Arnold would return from his knee injury - suffered in February - after the March international break. But the right-back once again missed out vs Brighton on Sunday.

Alexander-Arnold has since spoken about his plans to feature later this month: “It’s going well now, [I am] finally in the final stages and just excited to get back out there,” he told Sky Sports on Sunday.

“It’s hard watching and not being a part of it. It’s one of the longest [injuries] of my career so far, it gives you that hunger to get back out there and perform.

“I think a couple of weeks [and I’ll be back], if everything keeps going well and there’s no setbacks.”

Finally, Curtis Jones has been out with an ankle problem since mid-February, but he could be back for the Sheffield United game:

“Curtis is [in] full training,” Klopp said post-Brighton. “He trained already with us on Saturday, but had then extra, because the [matchday] minus one [session] does not have the intensity Curtis needed. He was with us, then he had an extra shift.

“He will be in full training. What does that mean exactly for the game? Let me have a look at that. Nobody else - the others, slowly but surely, but not yet.”
