Wijnaldum returns to injury


Georginio Wijnaldum has sustained a fresh ankle injury 

The Midfielder returned last week from a hamstring injury which he sustained in a pre-match training to face Tottenham.

following a 3-0 win over Maribor on Wednesday night at Anfield Gini is set to be side lined in the coming weeks as he picked up a ankle injury.

"At half-time the ankle was already swollen. It is probably not a good sign," said Klopp.

"We saw a kick in the game, we didn't think it was too serious, we were not sure if it was swollen or if he twisted it. For sure we have to make a scan."

"I don't think Phil will be able to play, with Dejan (Lovren) it's different, it's not the same problem as Phil had," added Klopp

"Gini is out, maybe there will be some wonder (recovery) with Phil but I don't think at the moment that he can play."

Maribor coach Darko Milanic, who had seen his side demolished 7-0 a fortnight ago, adopted a very defensive approach at Anfield and, while it worked for 45 minutes, the pressure eventually told.

"I am sure the decision for this kind of tactic was very good. We couldn't play any different way," the former Leeds boss said.

"The first half was a very good half defensively. The goal we conceded at the beginning of the second half gave our opponent additional energy.

"When the goalkeeper saved the penalty it gave us more energy but in the end I have to congratulate my boys for the very good match they played."

Liverpool will look to cope without six first team players that have been subjected to injury including Philippe Coutinho.
