And the Reds were forced to substitute Milner for Curtis Jones as they looked to see out their 1-0 lead.

Jurgen Klopp has already had to contend with a mountain of injury problems in his defence this campaign.

Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho and Joe Gomez have all been sent to the treatment room.

The issues have led to Klopp being a vocal critic of early Saturday matches for teams playing in Europe, with the Reds having faced Atalanta on Wednesday.
