Video: Jurgen Klopp: Hamstring is the s**t word of the year for me

Divock Origi limped off in the first half with a possible hamstring injury – which would be the tenth hamstring injury suffered in the two and a half months since Jurgen Klopp took charge.

Speaking after the match, the Liverpool manager joked: “Hamstring is the s*** word of the year for me. It is always hamstring, hamstring, hamstring – that is the intensity of the game and fixtures.”

Currently sidelined with a hamstring injury are Martin Skrtel, Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Rossiter – the latter who has suffered his second hamstring injury in quick succession.

Against Leicester, Simon Mignolet returned after missing the Watford match due to a hamstring injury, while Philippe Coutinho recently missed four games after a hamstring injury suffered against Man City.

The succession of injuries of this nature could be due to a change in training methods, or more running on the pitch.

Origi’s departure after 38 minutes was a blow to the team and the player, with the Belgian having impressed in the first half.

“Origi did really well. I hope it is not too serious, we will see,” said Klopp.

The manager explained the reason for selecting Origi ahead of Benteke due to wanting his speed against Leicester‘s defence.
