Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has ruled Roberto Firmino out of Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Barcelona, while Mohamed Salah is a doubt after being stretchered off against Newcastle.

Firmino was not even in the squad for the trip to St James’ Park, while Salah was injured after a heavy collision with Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka and could not continue.

Liverpool did go on to win the game 3-2, substitute Divock Origi scored a late winner after the Reds were awarded a pretty dubious free-kick.

The win means the Premier League title race will go down to the final day. Liverpool play Wolves at Anfield, while Manchester City face Leicester on Monday and finish off at Brighton
