Now Thiago will be assessed with Klopp commenting after the match: “It didn’t look good. We have to see.

“Not good, but I can’t say more. He was outside with the families, had his little girl on his shoulders, so he could walk, that’s obviously a good sign. All the rest we will see from tomorrow.

“[It’s the] lower part of the body. I know it, but actually don’t want to talk now about it. We will see.

“Give us a chance to have the [scan]; it makes the news not better or worse. We want to wait until we know more about it and then you will get the information as well.”

But Klopp is hopeful every other player in his squad will be fit to take on Real Madrid as the Reds seek revenge for the 2018 final defeat.

As for Origi, the striker was given a standing ovation as he walked out onto the Anfield pitch for the final time carrying the FA Cup trophy on Sunday.

His contract expires this summer and the Belgian has been heavily linked with a move to recently crowned Serie A champions AC Milan.
