The 24-year-old sustained the thigh injury in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Barcelona.

Guinea has disputed the diagnosis and are hoping he recovers in time for the AFCON in Egypt.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp revealed the former RB Leipzig enforcer was recovering very fast.
