Klopp in the dark over Firmino injury

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp faces a nervous wait to find out the extent of Roberto Firmino's eye injury suffered during the 2-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday. 

The Brazilian – who scored the Reds' second – was substituted in the 74th minute after a clash with Jan Vertonghen. 

Liverpool face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday and Klopp is unsure whether the 26-year-old will be fit enough to feature. 

"I'm not sure, but there may be an injury with Roberto, we don't know exactly in the moment," he said.
