Liverpool manager Klopp plays down fears over Salah, van Dijk injuries

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk did not suffer serious injuries in the FA Cup final win over Chelsea.

Salah was replaced after 33 minutes following an injury to his groin.

Van Dijk came off at the beginning of extra-time after feeling a niggle in his hamstring.

The Reds face Southampton on Tuesday, and while that game could come too soon, Klopp is confident the pair will make the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 28.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, Klopp said: "I think they are okay but don't think they'll be ready for this Tuesday."
