Liverpool will assess Mohamed Salah after he was forced off in the second half of their 3-0 Champions League quarter-final win over Manchester City, holding his groin.
The Egyptian scored the opening goal in a rampant Reds display at Anfield but was replaced in the 52nd minute by Georginio Wijnaldum and went straight down the tunnel alongside a Liverpool physio.
Manager Jurgen Klopp indicated at full-time that Salah believed everything was okay but the in-form forward could be a doubt for Saturday's Merseyside derby against Everton, live on Sky Sports Premier League.
Klopp said: "About Mo, I don't know. He came to the sidelines and said he felt, sometimes, something.
"That was enough for me to not even ask the doctor how he is, but to take him off the pitch.

"After the game I asked him and he said 'no, it's fine, I will be good'. But now we have to wait for the real diagnosis and not Mo's self-diagnosis."
Salah had pounced inside the box on 12 minutes to finish off an excellent counter-attack and give his side the lead, before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane also struck to make it 3-0 before half-time.
