Klopp confirmed the 20-year-old picked up an ankle concern, but he remains hopeful he will not to lose the talented right-back for any future fixtures.

“The last situation warming up, I think he stepped on the ball, I didn’t see the situation, I only saw him going down,” said Klopp.

“Trent on the ground – he’s a hard boy so that’s not a good sign and the doc came, something with the ankle. “And it was pretty painful. He made the sprints, but I didn’t like the way he did the sprints because when he slowed down, I thought it looked a bit like limping.

“In the dressing room, he told me the pain is away, then doc made a little treatment, made a strapping, go out. I don’t know exactly what it was and I hope it will not take long, that he doesn’t feel it any more.”
