Klopp has since revealed that it was knee problem that forced Van Dijk to come off in the 90th minute.

“Hopefully well, we’re going to check it out," the defender explained to reporters when asked about his injury.

"I felt in the first half when I sprinted, I felt a twinge behind my knee, I played on. In the end, I can’t risk it for the team and I need to trust Joel. Hopefully it will be fine.”

When asked about both Van Dijk and Mohamed Salah, he told ESPN, " "I think [Salah, Van Dijk] are kind of OK. I don't think they will be ready for Tuesday, to be honest...I don't think they would have been ready for Tuesday anyway!

"But I think they are alright, it was more of a precaution. Mo felt something, said 'I could carry on' and I had to make a decision, I said no. If you're feeling something on the pitch, it's not going to get better [if you keep playing], staying on is not the best treatment!

"With Virgil, it was more clear: 90 minutes yes, 120 minutes no.

"But what a situation, you bring on Joel Matip! Oh my God! That's really cool. So, all fine."
