With Andy Robertson having picked up his first minutes of pre-season on Thursday evening, Kostas Tsimikas knows he has two weeks to keep hold of his place in the Liverpool starting XI.

Fortunately, the defender has looked in best shape of his short Liverpool career during this pre-season, and will hope his reward is to hand Robertson some extra time off.

The Greek has been part of this summer's training camp in Austria since day one, and has notably featured in the team closest to Jurgen Klopp's strongest when called upon in friendlies.

But, with the start of the new season so close, he now faces competition from arguably the best left-back in world football for a spot in the side.

Of course, should Tsimikas stay, it would be folly not to make use of him given that left-back is one of few positions in which Liverpool possesses a direct replacement for a first-teamer.

Still, while staving off that challenge in the long-term is probably not a realistic aim, Tsimikas has every reason to feel he should keep his place for the first day of the season at least.
