Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has suffered a new injury setback after a foot problem in training ruled him out against Bordeaux in the Europa League.
The 26-year-old was hoping to make a return on Thursday from a knee injury which has kept him out since 4 October.
However, the England international has been sent for a scan after complaining of discomfort in a foot.
Sturridge is yet to play under Jurgen Klopp but was on the bench at Manchester City on Saturday and was due to be part of an 18-man squad for the Anfield game.
But the England striker, who has played just three games this season and only seven since October 2014, suffered an unspecified problem during afternoon shooting practice.
“I don’t know too much about the situation because it was in the afternoon after training. It’s not a situation I saw but we trained in two groups, the starting line-up and the other players trained together in shooting,” Klopp said.
“Of course we can now start to think about it because we had no time, it was really close to the game when the news came. No news in this moment, we have to wait.”
