Georginio Wijnaldum should discover on Wednesday whether he’ll be fit for Liverpool’s clash against Manchester United on Monday, according to a report.
The Mirror has claimed that Wijnaldum should find out the results of his injury on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old has been assessed at the Reds’ Melwood training ground on Tuesday after injuring his hamstring while on international duty.
The Dutchman went down clutching his hamstring an hour into the Group A clash between the Netherlands and France on Monday evening, forcing him off of the pitch as his country lost 1-0.
The midfielder, who joined Liverpool from Newcastle in the summer has started every Premier League game for Jurgen Klopp’s side in the new campaign.
However, he could miss his side’s biggest match of the season with the Merseysiders preparing for a clash against fierce rivals Manchester United on Monday.
Germany international Emre Can would be the most likely to replace Wijnaldum in the team’s line-up, but he hasn’t started a league game for the Reds this campaign.
Liverpool are also awaiting to see whether key attacker Adam Lallana will be fit in time for the United encounter, after he suffered an injury against Swansea.
The former Southampton man was forced out of the England squad, but it is believed that the Reds are giving him every chance to prove his fitness for Monday.
Key defensive duo Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne also sustained injuries against the Swans, but it is understood both will be available to face Manchester United.
