Liverpool have come off the back of a hard run of fixtures against Chelsea twice, Napoli and Manchester City in three different competitions, with defeats coming in the EFL Cup to the Blues and in the Champions League against the Italian side.

The injury is not thought to be severe, sources say, but it will likely see the 32-year-old miss some time.

Liverpool will return to Premier League action in two weeks time against Huddersfield at the John Smiths Stadium, where they will look to extend their unbeaten domestic run to nine matches.

"If somebody would have told me after eight match days you have 20 points, I would say with that fixture list 'I'll buy it, let's start with the ninth match day!'". That's why I say, going away is not a big problem, but now you call a manager of any country and ask him to leave out one or two players and he says: 'I am under pressure as well, ' because now it's Nations Cup.

"I don't exactly know what you can win but there is some final next summer or something so that's it".

"We aim to improve every game, even if it is against Chelsea, for example, and we want to win every game".

"He is a coach who demands a lot from his players, not only in matches but also on a daily basis in training", the Brazilian revealed.

However, Guardiola admitted his plan for a slower tempo to stop Liverpool springing onto the counter-attack had worked.

On Sunday, against the best team in the land, Liverpool showed that they have that now.

"[After] 85 minutes, you obviously get a bit worn out", explained Van Dijk, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Milner arrived on Merseyside from City where he spent a five-season spell, winning all four major domestic honours.

"Both teams did well, and we were a bit lucky with the penalty of course".
