Jurgen Klopp gives an injury update on three players

One player will be out in the Community Shield clash against Manchester City.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain appeared to feel his hamstring in the first half of Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat of Crystal Palace in Singapore.

The midfielder who has entered the final 12 months of his contract has struggled to fit in a number of ocassions.

“It’s very disappointing for him and for us. Ox had trained all the time really well and had looked really good,” Klopp told The Athletic.

“It has happened in the past with Ox when he has had intense periods. This is just a muscle thing and we’ve had worse situations.

“I don’t know exactly how long it will take. But he’ll come back and it will be all fine. He’s a top class player who can help us.”

The German manager further gave updates on two Liverpool players who are carrying knocks at the moment.

“Ali has a chance for the game against City, Diogo not,” the German added.

“With Ali, it’s nothing serious but we’re preparing for the whole season. It’s just not ideal. He can’t do goalie training with it and shouldn’t play in this moment, but he can still do some other things. These things happen. Only a little thing but we have to be careful.”
