Klopp delivers ‘not good’ injury update on Liverpool pair

Matt Stead

Jurgen Klopp has delivered some “not good news” in terms of injuries for Liverpool.

Liverpool have won each of their opening five games of the Premier League season, and will now turn their attentions to Europe.

The Reds face a difficult Champions League group, with Napoli and Red Star Belgrade to come.

But they open their campaign by hosting Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield, and will do so without two of their back-up strikers. The good news is that Roberto Firmino should make it.

“Unfortunately yes, we have new injury concerns,” he told the club’s official website. “We tried to give Divock and Dom a bit of practice [for the U23s]; they used it, they scored, but it looks like both of them will not be available for tomorrow.

“It’s not too serious. Div has a little bit of an ankle [injury]. He tried this morning and didn’t really work out too well, so he will try again tomorrow morning. With Dom, we have to see. He got a knock and we will see how that develops.

“So not good news in the moment, but we have a lot of players available and when I saw the players yesterday, there were not any other issues.”
