Sturridge wrapped up the contest seven minutes from time with an audacious chip at the end of a counter-attack, but the striker pulled up immediately with as suspected thigh strain as his injury problems took an untimely turn for the worse.
Sturridge said after the match that the injury was not serious and put it down to fatigue. And if we have to drop Philippe Coutinho back into midfield to feed them perfectly-weighted through balls all season, well, I guess that's just the way it goes.
Is Sadio Mane headed for Liverpool exit?
Moreno produced a fine display to help Klopp's side to a 3-0 victory over the Bundesliga champions at the Audi Cup on Tuesday. But we had a test with him this morning and he really played well.
"He hurt his thigh". I just hope he can play really soon.
Liverpool believed they had scored a third when excellent wide play from Ryan Kent was rewarded by Marko Grujic's deflected finish, but the effort was ruled out after Adam Lallana infringed Ulreich. "You could see how fast he is. I'm feeling the best I've felt for a while". He has come back from the summer looking absolutely brilliant, so fit. Liverpool will hope the diagnosis is not serious and will be buoyed by the forward's insistence afterwards that "it's nothing serious". "It was important this year we could get him, he's [going to be] a great player for us".
