Jurgen Klopp has played down any suggestion that James Milner will miss the Champions League final through injury.
Liverpool face Real Madrid in Russia on May 26 and the absence of Milner from the matchday squad on Sunday led some to speculate that the midfielder could remain on the sidelines after picking up a muscular issue at Chelsea. However, Klopp assured supporters, prior to kick-off on Sunday, that the problem is not considered long-term: "It’s a little injury. It’s serious enough to put him out for today; he couldn’t train the whole week," he said. "We hope it will work out. But we had to accept it and we had to think about solutions [to face Brighton]." Dominic Solanke came into the side, one of two changes, as Liverpool comfortably secured a Champions League qualification spot with a 4-0 win. Adam Lallana made good on his promise to feature during the run-in and the England international hopes to end his injury-ravaged season on a high after replacing Sadio Mane with 16 minutes remaining.
