Liverpool defender Kolo Toure has added to the list of players absent from Jürgen Klopp’s squad.
The veteran centre-back suffered a hamstring injury in the 1-0 win over Bournemouth in the League Cup last night.
He will undergo a scan to see how bad the damage is, but he is expected to miss up to a month.
It adds to the list that includes Daniel Sturridge, Jordan Henderson, Jon Flanagan, Danny Ings and Joe Gomez already.
Toure, now thirty-four years old, was unlikely to feature in the Premier League game against Chelsea at the weekend.
His experience in the cup games has been useful when blooding youngsters, however, as he was captain last night.
