Liverpool striker, Darwin Nunez, has emerged a doubt for their Champions League clash against Real Madrid on Tuesday.
Nunez will undergo tests on a shoulder injury following their 2-0 win at Newcastle United on Saturday.
The 23-year-old scored his first Premier League goal since before the World Cup to set Liverpool on course for a win at St James’ Park on Saturday — a win which moves Jurgen Klopp’s team up to eighth, six points behind fourth-placed Newcastle with a game in hand.
But the club record £75 million signing from Benfica was substituted on 59 minutes, replaced by Roberto Firmino, after sustaining a shoulder injury during the game.
And after the victory, Liverpool manager Klopp said that the Uruguay international needs further assessment to discover the full extent of the injury.
“Nunez has hurt his shoulder and he needs further assessment,” Klopp said. “We don’t know any more at the moment, we will have to see, but it is painful for him.”
