Liverpool suffer injury blow ahead of Manchester United clash

Liverpool have suffered an injury scare in regards to new signing Darwin Nunez ahead of their pre-season match against Manchester United on Tuesday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will face rivals Manchester United in a pre-season match at the Rajamangala Stadium in Thailand today.

According to The Telegraph (via Manchester Evening News), Nunez picked up a ‘minor foot issue’ during training on Monday.

The Uruguay international joined the Reds this summer for a club-record fee of over £85 million after impressing with Benfica last season.

Nunez scored 34 goals and registered four assists in 41 matches in all competitions for the Portuguese giants.

However, it appears Liverpool might have to wait a bit longer to see Nunez in action.

After taking part in initial training on Monday, the club’s medical staff pulled the 22-year-old out of further sessions.

There are suggestions that he could be suffering from some painful blisters on his foot.

It remains to be seen if Nunez will feature in the match on Tuesday as he was seen stretching on the sidelines later with a physiotherapist
