Naby Keita was not only stretchered off the pitch in Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League game at Napoli, but the player was taken to hospital afterwards for a suspected back injury.

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita saw just 19 minutes of action before being replaced with Jordan Henderson after sustaining the injury.

He is now a major doubt for Liverpool’s top-of-the-table Premier League clash at home to Manchester City on Sunday.

“Keita was transferred to a local hospital with the club doctor, where — with the midfielder’s agreement — he underwent a number of precautionary health checks to assess his condition,” Liverpool said in a statement.

Lorenzo Insigne scored in the 90th minute to send Napoli top of Group C on four points, one ahead of Liverpool and Paris St Germain.

Red Star Belgrade are bottom with one point.
