"Of course it is bad news." Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said in his Friday news conference.

"There is nothing good to say about that. The time frame and how long it will take, we are not 100 percent sure.

"It looks pretty sure that he will not be involved in the Christmas fixtures. It will obviously take a while. The whole night after the game, there was nobody asked me about that.

"That was my main problem immediately after the game. We've known since two days ago and we have solutions for that position.

"We have to replace him, we can replace him, we've played without him and played good without him. That is all OK.

"But now it is important that he is doing the right things and will be back as soon as possible. Until then, we have to find solutions. We are not the only team with injured players. That is what we have to deal with now, and we will."
