Firmino a doubt for Barcelona clash

Roberto Firmino is a doubt for Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final tie against Barcelona.

Firmino sustained a muscle injury in training on Thursday and was subsequently ruled out of the Reds’ 5-0 Premier League victory against Huddersfield.

Speaking after the win, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said: “Bobby trained on Thursday completely normal. It was not high intensity, we had to work on set-pieces a bit, a couple of things.

“I didn’t see it in training, it happened obviously in the last situation in training, he felt the muscle a little bit.

“Now that’s the official diagnosis: he has a small tear in a very small muscle. Apart from the word ‘tear’ everything is positive.”
