Liverpool striker Firmino ‘OK’ after eye ‘scare’

Firmino injured his left eye at Wembley

Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino says he is “OK” after sustaining an eye injury during Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley.

The 26-year-old Brazilian came off after 74 minutes after a clash with Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen.

“It was just a scare, my eye is OK and so am I,” Firmino said in a post on Instagram. “Thank you for all the support and see you soon.”

The Reds play Paris St-Germain in the Champions League at Anfield on Tuesday.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had been concerned about Firmino when he spoke to the media immediately after the Spurs game.

“I have no clue what exactly happened,” said Klopp. “But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him.”

Firmino scored Liverpool’s second goal in a victory that continued their 100% start to the season.

He was hurt as he chased the ball down the touchline with Vertonghen.
