Jürgen Klopp confirmed Joe Gomez suffered an ankle injury during Liverpool's 3-1 win at Burnley on Wednesday.
The No.12 was stretchered off midway through the first half at Turf Moor and the Reds will have to assess the seriousness of the issue in the coming days.
“It was his ankle,” the manager said at his post-match press conference.
“Joe is injured and probably not only a little bit. We have to see, we don’t know in the moment. We sent him home.”
Trent Alexander-Arnold will undergo a scan on his foot today amid fears that he will miss Liverpool's crunch Premier League clash with Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.The 20-year-old right-back hobbled off in the closing stages of Tuesday night's thrilling Champions League victory over Napoli at Anfield. The England international remains in pain and a scan will determine whether there is any bone damage.
With Joel Matip having damaged his shoulder against Napoli, Jurgen Klopp can ill afford to lose another defender before the visit of Jose Mourinho's side.
Joe Gomez is already out until late January with a fracture in his lower leg and Nathaniel Clyne, who hasn't played in the Premier League all season, has been sidelined since picking up a knock in training.
If Alexander-Arnold misses out then Klopp would have to employ either James Milner or Fabinho as a makeshift right-back. Milner played there against Bournemouth last weekend but he also went off against Napoli due to cramp
Still unconfirmed according to this site with regards to Matip's shoulder, even the offal hasn't confirmed him missing for 6 weeks. Also puzzling is, Gomez broken ankle heal faster than Matip's collar bone?
