Liverpool will reportedly be without Cody Gakpo for a few weeks with the suggestion he could make his return after the next international break. Liverpool’s dramatic defeat to Tottenham was dominated by controversial decisions on the field from the officials.
A late own goal from Joel Matip spoiled what was otherwise a well-fought display from Klopp’s side. They were in with a chance of clinching a point courtesy of a well-taken goal from Gakpo before the break as Liverpool were down to 10 men.
But the Holland international injured himself during the act of shooting as he fell to the floor in agony during his celebrations. His equaliser came on the stroke of half-time, giving Liverpool’s medical team time to work on Gakpo’s issue.
However, he was unable to continue for the second half with Diogo Jota being brought on to replace him. Gakpo was spotted walking in a brace after the match with Klopp confirming it was a “really bad” injury.
