Keira out of Liverpool game

Liverpool will be without injured midfielder Naby Keita for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Huddersfield Town but defender Virgil van Dijk has recovered from a rib problem, manager Juergen Klopp said on Friday.

Keita, who has featured in all eight league matches for the club so far, went off with a muscle problem in Guinea’s 1-1 draw with Rwanda on Tuesday.

Liverpool are also sweating on the fitness of striker Mohamed Salah, who picked up a groin injury on international duty with Egypt while fellow forward Sadio Mane is a major doubt after having hand surgery.

“We had yesterday’s session and a few of the boys trained. We have to see how they reacted after that. It’s pretty sure that Naby will not be available. With the rest we have to see how it develops,” Klopp told a news conference.
