Liverpool dealt Dominik Szoboszlai injury blow

It was not all positive for Liverpool vs Newcastle, though, as Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Dominik Szoboszlai suffered a hamstring injury in Liverpool’s 4-2 victory.

Speaking after the final whistle, Klopp confirmed that the midfielder had suffered a hamstring injury but was unable to confirm how long his side could be left without the 23-year-old’s services.

“Now we don’t know the extent of it, obviously. We have to wait.”

“Yeah (he came off because of injury). We wanted to take him off,” he told reporters. “It was the plan but unfortunately it was a minute late because in the last situation he felt the hamstring.

Szoboszlai is set to join Thiago Alcantara, Stefan Bajcetic, Andy Robertson, Joel Matip, and Kostas Tsimikas on the Reds’ injury list.
