Klopp provides Alexis Mac Allister injury update

Ahead of Thursday’s game, Jurgen Klopp has admitted he is unsure when Alexis Mac Allister will return to action, revealing he has never seen an injury like the Liverpool midfielder has suffered.

Mac Allister was cut on his knee against Sheffield United last week, initially playing on with it bandaged up before he was forced off before the hour mark at Bramall Lane.

The 24-year-old missed the win over Crystal Palace and will not be involved for Liverpool’s final Europa League group-stage match against Union Saint-Gilloise.

“It’s a bit more tricky than we thought at the first moment,” Klopp said.

“The other boy stepped on his knee and the stud went through pretty much the muscle on to the bone. Now, we have to wait until the bone is healed and until Macca can deal with the pain, because it is pretty painful.

“Macca is actually a super-tough guy so we have probably to make sure just from an infection point of view nothing happens. That’s really important.”
