Naby Keita has added to Liverpool's injury concerns after limping out of an Africa Cup of Nations tie while playing is Guinea's qualifier against Rwanda.

The 23-year-old has made 10 starts for the Reds since joining from RB Leipzig.

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita had to be piggy-backed off the field by a Guinean team-mate, because no stretcher was available in a Rwandan stadium.

The news came as another blow for Jurgen Klopp and his side with Sadio Mane and Mo Salah also picking up injuries during the global break.

Meanwhile, Salah picked up a groin injury in Egypt's game with Swaziland on Friday and has since returned to Liverpool.

Sadio Mane suffered a broken thumb while away with Senegal over the weekend and the Telegraph claim Liverpool will decide whether further medical action needs to be taken once the injury is assessed upon his return to Melwood on Wednesday.

Van Dijk played in the 3-0 win over bitter rivals Germany - even managing to chip in with a goal for his side.

"Virgil has played with two broken ribs in the last weeks", he said.
