Liverpool will be without James Milner and Naby Keita for the trip to Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

The pair will sit out the Premier League encounter in London due to muscle injuries and are likely to also miss Manchester United’s visit to Anfield on January 19, Jürgen Klopp confirmed during his pre-Spurs press conference on Friday morning.

“James and Naby are not available. Both are muscle injuries, different and for different people, so we see how quick they will be.

“We really don’t have to put a timeframe on it because we don’t know it exactly. We will see, we are open and whenever they want to join us again, they can – or when the medical department gives the green light.

“For sure, not for this weekend, not for next week, but then we will see.”
