Liverpool fans have delivered heartfelt messages on Twitter after hearing Danny Ings is set to be ruled out for the entire season.
Ings, who moved to the Merseyside giants last summer, has been sidelined for more than a year after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament during Klopp’s first training session as Liverpool boss.
However, the former Burnley forward looked to have put his injury demons behind him after making a late appearance from the substitutes’ bench during Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Tottenham in the EFL Cup.
But Liverpool’s number 28 injured his right knee during an innocuous challenge in the fourth round of the cup, different to the injury suffered beforehand on his left knee.
Ings’ latest setback is a huge blow and Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to share in the heartache.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Devastated to see Danny Ings has picked up such a serious knee injury. Fantastic lad, great dedication. He'll fight back just like last time

Devastated for Ings. Noticed he was hobbling for the rest of the game after that challenge. Often the innocuous ones with knee injuries. https://t.co/tPyNVyLkcs
