Naby Keita is likely to be sidelined for Wednesday's Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid, confirmed Jürgen Klopp.

The Liverpool No.8 had to be withdrawn during the first half of Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion due to a hamstring injury.

Keita will undergo a scan on the issue to determine its severity, but Klopp does not anticipate the midfielder can be involved versus Atletico.

“He told me, he showed me [the] hamstring. So, I don’t know, we will see; obviously tomorrow [or] the day after tomorrow he will have a scan and then we will know,” the manager told post-match.

“But if somebody feels the hamstring, it would be the first time that he is ready for the next game. So, I can’t see that.”
