Liverpool fans back James Milner after fears Andrew Robertson could miss Crystal Palace clash

Many Liverpool fans have been sharing their support for James Milner stepping up to replace Andrew Robertson, after The Athletic’s James Pearce revealed that the Scot could miss the Reds’ trip to Crystal Palace through injury.

Robertson has been forced to withdraw from Scotland’s squad for their Euro 2020 qualifiers with Cyprus and Kazakhstan due to an issue with his ankle, which was heavily swollen after Liverpool beat Manchester City 3-1 on Sunday.

Liverpool will now have to wait and see whether the star left-back will be fit to face Crystal Palace when Premier League action resumes later this month.

Robertson will be checked by the Reds’ medical department once the swelling to his ankle has subsided, which will also be observing Mohamed Salah’s situation after the Egyptian withdrew from international duty with an ankle issue of his own.

Some Liverpool fans have been reacting to the latest updates on Salah and Robertson’s situation by suggesting that Milner can fill the void at left-back against Crystal Palace if needed.

Milner has been deployed as the left-sided full-back by Jurgen Klopp three times this season, with outings in defence against KRC Genk in the Champions League plus MK Dons and Arsenal in the Carabao Cup.

Should Milner start at Crystal Palace?
