Robertson joins Liverpool seven-man casualty list in 'big boost' for Arsenal - Campbell
Liverpool’s injury problems have given Arsenal “a boost” ahead of their trip to Anfield on Saturday evening, according to Kevin Campbell.
However, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gunners and Everton striker ‘guaranteed’ it will be a “very tough game” for Mikel Arteta’s side.
As revealed by The Athletic‘s James Pearce (17th November), Naby Keita, Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez, Curtis Jones, James Milner and Harvey Elliott are all sidelined currently.
Andy Robertson is also a doubt for this weekend’s Premier League fixture after he aggravated his hamstring while on international duty.
The Reds could also be without their captain Jordan Henderson, but there is hope he will recover from a groin problem in time.
Campbell fears Arsenal will be “suffocated” by Jurgen Klopp’s side, even if they are depleted.

“Listen, one thing I can guarantee, is that you never get an easy game at Anfield,” he told Football Insider.
“As an ex-player, I can guarantee you that.
“If they are not at full strength, it gives Arsenal a better chance, a boost. But they still have to go there and get something. That is the toughest part.
“Yes, there is some injuries. But, let’s be honest, whoever comes into that team will do a job.
“At home, Liverpool are relentless so it is going to be a very tough game. Arsenal have to play smart. Liverpool suffocated Arsenal at Anfield last season. They couldn’t get out.
“It is a big test for Mikel Arteta. If his team can’t get through the press it is going to be a long evening.”
