Klopp Gives Woeful Injury Update After Liverpool’s 3-0 Win Over Leicester

Liverpool's convincing 3-0 win over Leicester was marred by two fresh injury concerns.

Boss Jurgen Klopp confirmed Naby Keita sustained a hamstring injury after just 53 minutes before limping off and being replaced by Neco Williams.

And after the match, Klopp revealed the midfielder will now be assessed by the medical team to determine the severity of the injury.

“He felt his hamstring and was not able to play on, otherwise he would have stayed on the pitch.”

Keita will be joined on the injury list by Xherdan Shaqiri, who picked up a muscle issue on international duty with Switzerland.

“Shaq, how I know it, he had a muscle injury with the national team which he didn’t really realise.

“Then we did a scan and they found he has an injury from five or six days ago.

“Nobody knew about that, not even Shaq knew about it, but that’s how things sometimes are and so he was not able to be involved.”

Meanwhile, after testing positive for coronavirus last week, Mohamed Salah will return to training on Monday and be in contention to face Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday.

“He can now train with us tomorrow, that’s it. He will have two tests in the next two days, so, yes, he will be tested like all of us.”
