What is the latest update on Roberto Firmino’s eye injury and will he be fit to face PSG?

Liverpool updated fans yesterday and, to everyone’s relief, confirmed Firmino has not suffered any lasting eye damage.

A statement from the club read: “A hospital examination confirmed an abrasion of the eye, but there will be no lasting damage.

“The issue will be monitored and treated by medical staff before any decision is made on whether he will figure against PSG.


“At this stage, the No 9 has not been ruled out.

“Firmino travelled back to Merseyside separately from his teammates following the positive assessment.”

The former Hoffenheim striker has been a key man this season, netting twice in his last two games.

In both games, against Spurs and Leicester away, Firmino’s input proved decisive as he netted the second goals in back-to-back 2-1 wins.
