Gakpo scored his second goal of the week in Saturday night’s 2-1 Premier League defeat at Tottenham Hotspur, equalizing Heung-Min Son’s opener just before half-time.
However, the Dutchman injured his knee moments earlier when he was tackled by Tottenham left-back Destiny Udogie and was replaced by Diogo Jota at half-time.

Gakpo left the stadium on crutches, holding a brace on his right knee, and will undergo scans to determine the extent of the damage.
And Klopp said: “The biggest problem in the game was before Cody Gakpo scored, he got injured. He now limps down the hall in a brace. This is my problem now.

– We lost two and maybe a third player, very badly. This is something we obviously have to deal with.
“It could be bad. I don’t know. He scored after that (injury), but he felt it even more after that shot.

“I told the boys straight after the game that I was very proud. Especially with 10 men we were really good. We really needed everything and on top of that we were pretty good. dangerous, we still won. It is good, top notch.

“But the boys showed an incredible mentality, it was unbeatable, I’ve never seen anything like it, it was top, top, top.

“People could think because of that very, very bad luck – oh my God – that we didn’t get anything out of the game. But I see it differently. I learned so much about my team, much more than if we won here with a bad performance. It was a really great performance in a way. We didn’t score on it, but we’ll use it.”
