“If somebody feels the hamstring, it would be the first time that he is ready for the next game. So, I can’t see that”, Klopp said.
“He told me, he showed me [the] hamstring. So, I don’t know, we will see; obviously tomorrow [or] the day after tomorrow he will have a scan and then we will know.
“It’s very disappointing – it’s the hamstring – it didn’t help because Brighton are really good on the right side. It was not easy for Ox to come in as he is a completely different player.”
In addition, Liverpool will host Atlético Madrid on Wednesday for the matchday 4 o the UEFA Champions league. Naby Keita is a doubt for that encounter for the moment.
