The sight of Konate leaving the field against Sparta Prague was a concerning one, immediately throwing his involvement this weekend into doubt.

Klopp provided an update on the Frenchman’s situation in Friday’s press conference, admitting a scan will prove to be decisive:

“How we know, that doesn’t mean a lot, unfortunately! He will get scanned, definitely. So far, I don’t have the results of that.”

For now, we have to all keep our collective fingers crossed!
