Jürgen Klopp confirmed Trent Alexander-Arnold and Luis Diaz will require scans on the respective injuries they sustained at Arsenal on Sunday.

Diaz was forced from the pitch before half-time due to a knee issue, while Alexander-Arnold was substituted during the interval after picking up a knock to his ankle.

Both players will now undergo further assessment to determine the severity of the problems, but Klopp admitted both were ‘not good’.

The manager told his post-match press conference: “Lucho we had to change before [half-time]. [It’s] something with the knee, not good.

“He will have a scan and then we will know more. I have no idea about the extent and then on top of that Trent is bad as well with the ankle.

“[He] twisted the ankle, not good. Trent never, in seven years, went off if he could have played on. He was in too much pain, it started swelling immediately, so we will have to see.”
