Georginio Wijnaldum may miss the Club World Cup after suffering a muscle injury in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday.

The Dutch international hobbled off in the second half of the victory which moved Liverpool eleven points clear at the top of the Premier League.

After the game, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp told the club’s website, “Muscle. I don’t know anything else.

“[Whether he can travel to Qatar] is actually in the moment one of my smallest concerns – he could probably fly – but my problem is more what exactly the injury is and I don’t know that yet.

“It’s a muscle thing and you never want to have a muscle injury.

“But in these moments it always makes it immediately more difficult, but it’s not only us, all other teams have the same problems. We have to deal with these situations, that’s clear.

“We will see – tomorrow we know more.”
