Jurgen Klopp Confirms Liverpool's New Signing Ben Davies Is Injured
Liverpool have suffered ANOTHER injury setback with new signing Ben Davies picking up a "little knock," ruling him out of today's Premier League fixture against Leicester City.
Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Davies sustained a minor injury ahead of Saturday's clash.
Speaking to BT Sport, he revealed: "It was a good training week for Ozan. Ben Davies picked up a little knock as well - it is unbelievable."

Davies was drafted in from Preston during the January transfer window as defensive cover amid Liverpool's injury crisis.
But the 25-year-old has been sidelined with an injury which means the German boss is now without defenders Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Fabinho.
Ozan Kabak, who was also snapped up last month, was handed his Liverpool debut against Leicester - partnering makeshift defender Jordan Henderson at centre-back.
Needless to say, Liverpool's latest injury blow sent their fans wild on social media.
Klopp laughing when he says Ben Davies has picked up a knock says it all:joy:
