Jurgen Klopp provided an update on Darwin Núñez’s injury after the Crystal Palace game.
Núñez felt pain in his shoulder from a challenge with Kieran Trippier at St James Park a couple of weeks ago despite playing against Real Madrid midweek.
The Uruguayan’s absence was notable on the pitch as Liverpool struggled to cause Crystal Palace any problems offensively. It was a lacklustre performance up front and the Reds failed to capatalise on any chances.
The Liverpool boss admitted he does not know when his striker will return.
Speaking at full-time time Klopp said
“Darwin was okay with an injection against Madrid because there’s no structural damage.”
“It’s very painful but the day after the Madrid game he got another knock there and he couldn’t move the arm at all”, Klopp said.
“We will have to see how long that will take. That was the reason for him not playing.”
