Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson has returned to full training after an ankle injury, The Athletic’s James Pearce reports.
Robertson was forced off in the first half of Liverpool’s penultimate friendly against Athletic Bilbao just six days before the start of the new season.
Kostas Tsimikas deputised for the Scot in the Reds’ opener against Norwich City, making his first Premier League start.
But Robertson’s recovery from the ligament damage has been described as ‘rapid’ and he took a full part in training with his team-mates on Friday ahead of the meeting with Burnley.
How will Liverpool line-up against Burnley?
Pearce says it is ‘likely’ Tsimikas will keep his place against the Clarets, but Robertson should be ready for the clash with European champions Chelsea prior to the international break.
Elsewhere, Liverpool could welcome back the midfield duo of Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson against Burnley after the late pre-season returnees ramped-up their fitness in a behind-closed-doors friendly.
