Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp, stated after the Strasbourg game that Jones had been desperate to be involved.

He said: “We had no time; he felt it today and he wanted to play desperately, but then the medical department said no and that we needed to make further tests. We will do that tomorrow and then we will know more.”
