Jurgen Klopp had one thing on his mind as he left Liverpool's historic Melwood training base for the final time. No injuries — whatever happens, let them all come back in good health.

Liverpool are moving to a new headquarters in Kirkby and it was Klopp's wish that all those who had international commitments would return in fine spirits ahead of the top-of-the-table showdown with Leicester on Saturday week. Now, miserably, a cloud will hang over the group when they reconvene.

This has been a campaign pockmarked with injuries for the champions, but there was a desperate turn of events on Wednesday at St George's Park when Joe Gomez suffered damage to his knee that means it is unlikely he will kick a ball again this season.

England's players knew the severity of the issue as soon as Gomez crumpled and yelped in agony during a training session. Nobody was around him. All he was doing was preparing to make a pass.
