Liverpool maintained their strong pre-season form with a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town, but the win was marred slightly by an injury to midfielder Lucas Leiva.
Leiva pulled up with an apparent hamstring issue on the hour mark at the John Smith’s Stadium and Jürgen Klopp is waiting to discover the full extent of the problem. Having made all of their outfield substitutions, Liverpool were forced into bringing on Under-18s goalkeeper Shamal George to partner Danny Ings in attack. When asked for an injury update after the game, the Liverpool boss replied: "Of course it’s muscle so we have to wait. But things like this happen - that’s how it is. It’s always unlucky and never in the right moment, but we have to wait for the exact assessment." The Reds are yet to concede in their four friendly games to date scoring ten times away from Anfield.
