Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been questioned about his decision to leave new left-back signing Andrew Robertson out of his first two competitive squads of the season.

Alberto Moreno started against Watford and Hoffenheim, with James Milner on the bench.

Klopp believes Robertson – signed on July 21 – arrived too late to be involved early in the season.

“He’s in a good moment, developing well. Everything fine from my side. He came in late and has to adapt to our style,” said Klopp.

“We came back yesterday had a little session. It was an intense game in Hoffenheim. Things will change during the season. I have told them. As a player it’s not easy.

“The rule is if you train really well, work hard, everything will be perfect.”
