Liverpool boss hoping Origi, Toure injuries are not serious

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is keeping his fingers crossed for injured duo Divock Origi and Kolo Toure.

Both players were forced off with respective injuries in the second half of the 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium on Sunday but a positive Klopp feels they may have escaped serious issues.

Following the game, Klopp said: "[Origi] got a knock on his back, I think.

"I asked him after the game and he said it was a little knock in the back and hopefully it's not serious.

"[Toure's injury is] a little bit more [serious], it's the muscle. I'm not sure if it's cramp or more but in the last few months Kolo had absolutely no issue with his muscles so hopefully it's not a big thing."
