Georginio Wijnaldum was ruled out of Liverpool's Wembley meeting with Tottenham Hotspur due to a knee injury sustained in training.

After picking up the knock on Saturday, the midfielder was assessed but the Premier League game came too soon for the Dutchman to feature in the squad against Spurs.

“Gini got a knock on his knee yesterday. It’s nothing serious but very painful,” said Jürgen Klopp ahead of the clash in London.

“We couldn’t do it overnight. It’s not a big thing but the time was too short from yesterday to today, so he’s not even involved in the squad.”
