Kostas Tsimikas missed Wednesday’s friendly at Red Bull Salzburg with a minor injury, Jürgen Klopp has confirmed. The left-back sustained the issue on Tuesday during Liverpool’s pre-season training camp in Saalfelden and will continue to be assessed. Asked about Tsimikas’ absence for the contest with the Austrian side, Klopp told: “He got yesterday a knock, so he cannot play today. And all the rest, we will see later.” 

Summary

Benjamin Sesko’s assured first-half finish put the Austrian champions ahead and Liverpool were unable to find a way through to equalise. Klopp did, however, give more important minutes to 22 players over the course of the game as the Reds prepare to kick off competitive action for 2022-23 in this weekend’s FA Community Shield.
