Liverpool forward Divock Origi will miss around three weeks after a scan revealed he has a minor hamstring tear.
It’s the tenth hamstring injury that has occurred in the opening three months of Jurgen Klopp‘s reign at Liverpool, with the boss bemoaning the “S**t word of the year” after the Leicester game.
“Hamstring is the s*** word of the year for me,” he joked. “It is always hamstring, hamstring, hamstring – that is the intensity of the game and fixtures.”
Origi’s injury means Liverpool only have Christian Benteke as a recognised centre-forward, with Danny Ings out for the season and Daniel Sturridge undergoing a “mini pre-season” before he’s risked to return again.
