Roberto Firmino missed Liverpool's meeting with Huddersfield Town due to a muscle injury, Jürgen Klopp has confirmed.

The forward sustained the issue in training on Thursday but, with the Reds set to visit FC Barcelona in the Champions League next week, the manager reassured it is ‘not a big thing’.

“Actually, yesterday after training he mentioned a little muscle issue,” Klopp, who replaced Firmino with Daniel Sturridge in the starting XI, told Sky Sports.

“We assess it obviously. It’s not a big thing but was enough to leave him out today, that’s all.”
