Jurgen Klopp has now confirmed that the 29-year-old midfielder will be out for three weeks, adding that a scan has been carried out to confirm the severity of the injury.

"It could have been worse. How we all know," Klopp told reporters.

"It was a hamstring thing, and we’ve heard of different hamstring injuries around the Premier League - Harry Kane, for example - it’s not that bad.

"But he will be out for, I think, three weeks or so, which is not cool. But, how we see it, we were still lucky."

Liverpool will face West Ham in their next encounter followed by Watford before a much-anticipated clash against Chelsea.
