Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has bemoaned the injury to his star forward Divock Origi has cast “a shadow” over the Merseyside win.
Liverpool beat Everton 4-0 on Wednesday night as the 18-time league title Champions proved their dominance in the densely populated area.
However, the victory was marred by in-form Origi’s ankle injury he picked up in the game as stretchered off after the break when Ramiro Funes Mori was red-carded in the 50th minute for smashing into his ankle.
Klopp believes despite the importance of the win, his possible loss of Origi was hard to take.
“They say it is disgusting, awful pictures. It is a bit of a shadow on the game.” he told reporters.
“Usually after a 4-0 I can’t keep the smile off my face but we have to see what happens. We have to wait for an assessment. Everyone who saw the pictures thought it was broken but it is not.
“I went to the medical room and saw him smiling. The ankle is twisted so we have to wait to see what happens to the ligaments.”
