Divock Origi: Gives his thoughts on Premier League title race

Divock Origi is one of a number of Liverpool players to miss out in Tuesday’s Audi Cup clash against Bayern Munich – but Philippe Coutinho and James Milner are available for the Reds.

Origi was withdrawn from the starting line-up for Saturday’s friendly against Hertha Berlin after reporting a tight hamstring while Joe Gomez, who played in the 3-0 win, has a minor knee problem.

“Divock won’t be available for the two Audi Cup games. He has picked up a very slight muscle injury,” Klopp told liverpoolfc.com.

“We are being cautious with this but it makes sense. He will be monitored over the next few days but we are not overly concerned.”

On Gomez, Klopp added: “He will be missing from the next few games.

“It is nothing too serious, a little issue with his knee picked up in the game but we will take no risk with him.”

Klopp also does not want to risk striker Danny Ings, who is still working his way back to full fitness after a knee operation in October.

Right-back Nathaniel Clyne and third-choice goalkeeper Danny Ward are both sidelined with back injuries but keeper Loris Karius, centre-back Dejan Lovren and Klopp’s stand-in left-back last season James Milner are all available after minor niggles.
