Liverpool also facing injury problems: Jurgen Klopp has "no idea" if star will play at the Emirates


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that striker Daniel Sturridge could miss this week's Premier League opener against Arsenal.

The Englishman didn't feature against Barcelona and Mainz last week after picking a hip injury in training.

Arsenal have problems of their own as defenders Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista will both miss the game because of injury.

And Laurent Koscielny is not 100% fit after reaching the Euro 2016 Championship final with the French national team.

"No idea. That's a two-word answer!" Klopp is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"[But] I'm always ready. We played some games that were very good, others that were less good.

"Barcelona was really good and then we had Mainz, and that is what you need. You have to work and that is all. That is what we are doing.

"We will be ready for the first game next week, for sure. But if Arsenal was the best game of the season for us, there would be something wrong with the season.

"We still have to go on. This is only the first game. We cannot decide the whole season in one game. But we need to be as good as possible. And that is what we will be, 100 per cent.

"But I am not in the mood to say this is our final shape."
