Keita out of Liverpool’s Champions League tie at Bayern

Guinea midfielder Naby Keita has been ruled out of the Liverpool squad for Wednesday’s Champions League clash at Bayern Munich with injury.

After a goalless last 16, first-leg draw at Anfield, a win or a score draw at Munich’s Allianz Arena would send Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool into the quarter-finals.

Keita, 24, who started the first leg three weeks ago in central midfield alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson, was left out “due to a minor injury”, the club confirmed.

However, right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold was included in the 21-man squad despite picking up a knock in Liverpool’s 4-2 win over Burnley in the Premier League at the weekend.
