Wijnaldum ruled out of Tottenham clash
Georginio Wijnaldum was ruled out of Liverpool's meeting with Tottenham Hotspur due to a knee injury sustained in training. After picking up the knock on Saturday, the midfielder was assessed but the Premier League game came too soon for the Dutchman to feature in the squad against Spurs.
"Gini got a knock on his knee yesterday. It's nothing serious but very painful," said Jurgen Klopp ahead of the clash in London. "We couldn't do it overnight. It's not a big thing but the time was too short from yesterday to today, so he's not even involved in the squad."

The England international, who scored the game's only goal from a free-kick, went down holding his knee in the 76th minute and had to be replaced by Anthony Martial.
"With Rashford, I thought it was cramp because he was running so much - I thought it was muscular fatigue," Mourinho said. "But no, he told me he felt something in his knee. It didn't look to me like a big thing but we don't know."
