Jürgen Klopp

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has provided a brief injury update ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League tie against FC Salzburg.

Defender Joel Matip picked up an injury against Sheffield United at the weekend and will be assessed in the run up to the Group E fixture. Midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri is nursing a calf injury and remains sidelined while the game has also come round too soon for goalkeeper Alisson.

Speaking to the official Liverpool FC website, Klopp said: “[They’re] in a good mood, good spirits, but we have to wait a little bit to give a final answer about fitness.

“Joel Matip obviously got a slight knock at Sheffield, we have to see how exactly it will be.

“Apart from that, everybody should be fine.

“Of course, we have the players who weren’t available last week – that means Shaq is still out; Alisson is very close but for sure not for tomorrow.

“I think that’s it pretty much.”

UPDATED: Matip definitely ruled out.
