Jurgen Klopp Manager of Liverpool looks on prior to the Premier League match between West Ham United and Liverpool at London Stadium

Nathaniel Clyne has been dealt another setback at his continues to recover from a long-standing back injury, with the Liverpool midfielder set to miss another three months after undergoing corrective surgery on Monday.

The England global has not featured all season because of the issue and it is understood that he will face a further lay-off after having an operation on Monday.

Earlier this month, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admitted that the Merseyside club that Clyne's situation was "not that good" and needed time.

The 26-year-old was first suffering with a back problem at the end of last season, in May.

Manager Jurgen Klopp said: "He was in a good way, running with high intensity but the muscle showed a little reaction".

Robertson earned himself a transfer to the Reds from Hull City during the summer transfer window following a series of impressive performances.

It puts added pressure youngsters Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez, who have been sharing the right-back duties in Clyne's absence.

A few appearances off the bench might be possible, but given the limits on substitutions and Robertson can really only play the one position, so far Klopp has preferred more versatile bench options ahead of including a specialist fullback and on both sides of the pitch it's been a case of start or sit in the stands.

Besides Clyne's long-term absence, the Reds are also running the rule over Sadio Mane who was forced to end his global duty with Senegal early last week with a suspected hamstring problem.

Mane, who featured in the Reds' win at West Ham on November 4 after five games out having been injured on global duty, is due back at their Melwood training ground on Tuesday. I don't make any secret of it, I hate not playing.

Monday saw a return to training for all the players who are not away on worldwide duty.
