Andy Robertson could have a field day against ageing Stephan Lichtsteiner

Liverpool full-back Andy Robertson could be in for a fun afternoon against Arsenal if Hector Bellerin does not recover from the muscle injury he sustained against Crystal Palace.

The Spaniard is to be assessed ahead of the clash at the Emirates Stadium as reported by The Metro and is currently touch and go.

Should Bellerin not recover in time for the visit of the Reds, then it’ll likely be summer signing Stephan Lichtsteiner who replaces him.

 

That is his usual position, with Granit Xhaka likely to continue as a makeshift left-back.

Robertson in for a field day?

Robertson will certainly fancy his chances against Bellerin’s replacement Lichtsteiner, who isn’t the most mobile of full-backs.

The ex-Juventus star, soon to be 35, is not the player he once was and is highly susceptible to players with a turn of pace.

As it were, Robertson is one of the most mobile full-backs in the Premier League, and spends games blasting up and down the left flank.

There’s no doubt Lichtsteiner had an impressive career with the Serie A giants, but he has looked suspect in England so far.

If Bellerin doesn’t recover, the Scotland international Robertson might just tear the old-timer apart on Saturday
