Liverpool FC release statement on Joe Gomez injury latest

Chris Hughton thinks his side deserved more at Turf Moor

Chris Hughton thinks his side deserved more at Turf Moor

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes defender Joe Gomez was unlucky to suffer a broken leg against Burnley on Wednesday but stressed that Premier League teams could be aggressive without injuring opponents.

Naby Keita should be included once more after he played his best game in a Liverpool shirt against Burnley.

With an ankle injury sustained by Joe Gomez the most significant of Liverpool's problems after yesterday's win, the German called for greater protection from what he perceived as Burnley's excessively aggressive approach to tackling.

"Clyne has been out for two weeks. Hopefully he can finish the programme today we did for him", Klopp said. It was important that we really could make the changes because it was absolutely clear for us that it would be very intense at Turf Moor.

"[It's] a bit, I would say, lucky because it could have been worse. We have options - a lot of players can play that position". "But we have to see".

"He got a knock last week and got a concussion and is still not able to play, like Clyney, who has been out for two weeks already. It's nothing serious but he's not in training, so he's not available either".

Klopp has other injury concerns with Sadio Mane's cut foot meaning he is ruled out of the trip to the south coast while fellow forward Dominic Solanke is not expected to return to training until after the Bournemouth game.

"He [Klopp] didn't reference Daniel Sturridge's cheating when he went down, nothing near him, and he got a free-kick for it".

"I'm not sure whether he (Dyche) spoke about the challenge of Bardsley on Moreno".

Speaking in the video on Liverpool's Twitter account, Gomez said: 'Hi everyone, it's Joe, I just wanted to say thank you to you all for your kind messages and well wishes.
