‘If Naby’s injury is not so serious, which I hope, then it was a nearly perfect night,’ Klopp said after the game.
‘He felt a little bit. I saw it, he slipped when he lost the ball. He slipped away, I saw him limping afterwards and that’s why we did it.’
Keita has endured an injury-plagued second season in England having missed the first month of the campaign after tearing a muscle in his leg.
