Keita’s career at Anfield has failed to truly take off with various injuries limiting his time on the pitch. Worth noting, he lasted just 53 minutes before limping off and being replaced by Neco Williams. His counterpart Xherdan Shaqiri picked up a muscle issue leading to Liverpool facing two new injury blows.
Additionally, after the match, Klopp revealed the midfielder will be assessed by the medical team. To determine the severity of the injury, amid a hectic fixture scheduled.
He said: “He felt his hamstring and was not able to play on; otherwise he would have stayed on the pitch.
Consequently, Xherdan Shaqiri; who picked up a muscle issue on international duty with Switzerland joined the injury list.
Klopp’s view on the injury issues
Klopp added: “Shaq, how I know it; he had a muscle injury with the national team which he didn’t really realise.
“Now he trained with us; we gave him a day off and then he came back and involved in the session.
“He just did a little bit, after that he felt a little bit. Then we did a scan and they found he has an injury from five or six days ago.
“Nobody knew about that, not even Shaq knew about it; but that’s how things sometimes are and so he was not able to be involved.”
But after testing positive for coronavirus last week. Mohamed Salah will return to training on Monday ; be in contention to face Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday.
“That’s what I’ve heard, yes, it [was] negative today,” Klopp said. “I think he is from now on pretty normal in testing. Tomorrow we have the UEFA testing for the Champions League and I am pretty sure he will be in that.
“He can now train with us tomorrow, that’s it. He will have two tests in the next two days, so, yes, he will be tested like all of us.”
