James Milner took Keita’s place in the starting XI as Liverpool romped to a 2-0 victory to maintain their 13 point lead at the top of the table.
“Everybody who has played football has had this kind of injury and it’s not nice, it’s painful.
“I don’t know exactly what it is or how long it will take, but I can say already he will not be ready for Sunday.”
Liverpool will assess the Guinean’s injury to determine it’s severity.
It comes as bad news to Klopp who already has Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and Fabinho out injured.
Keita who moved to Liverpool last summer has struggled with injuries and a loss of form. He had just started to put together a consistent run of matches.
Hopefully, the injury does not disturb his momentum and he won’t be out for long.
