The injury crisis at Liverpool has worsened ahead of their participation at the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup tournament in Qatar.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will have to deal with a lot of absentees for the tournament though the latest injury victim Georginio Wijnaldum could still play a part as the Reds chase glory in Qatar.

Dutch international star Wijnaldum travelled with the Liverpool squad on Sunday morning ahead of their semifinal clash with Monterrey FC of Mexico later this week.

Monterrey set up a semifinal meeting with the reigning European champions after the 3-2 win over Al Sadd of Qatar managed by Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez.

Georginio Wijnaldum added to the growing list of injury worried at Liverpool after he sustained a hamstring injury during the win over basement club Watford in their Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon.

He was the only downside to a professional 2-0 win over Watford at home which ensured that the Reds are now 10 points clear at the top of the table in the Premier League.

Mohamed Salah scored both goals either side of the halftime interval to take his tally to 13 this season in all competitions.

Important Liverpool players like Fabinho, Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip are not in the Liverpool squad to Qatar because of respective injuries.
