Jurgen Klopp provides Mohammed Salah and Virgil van Dijk injury update

The duo of Mohammed Salah and Virgil Van Dijk remain doubtful for Liverpool’s crucial Premier League clash with Southampton on Tuesday.

Salah suffered a groin injury in the first half and Van Dijk was forced out with a knee problem before extra time in Saturday’s FA Cup final victory over Chelsea, full evaluations of both players are still pending.

Manchester City would be crowned champions if Liverpool lose at St Mary’s Stadium, but manager Jurgen Klopp may be hesitant to take risks with the Champions League final still to play for.

Klopp said at a press conference: “This process is not finished yet. We played 120 minutes only two days ago.

“The boys only arrived today (Monday) and we have to make a lot of decisions.

“But what I can promise, definitely, is we will line up to try to win the game at Southampton. We have a job to do and we have to see who is able to help.”

“I am really looking forward to the game tomorrow. Is it a big chance? I wouldn’t say so because I don’t know when City last dropped points two games in a row.

“I don’t expect City to drop points but that has no influence on our game tomorrow. In an ideal world we’ll go into the last match one point behind.”

Fabinho remains out after missing the FA Cup finals to a thigh injury, but Andy Robertson is expected to be available after suffering cramp in the match against Chelsea.
