Liverpool fans are sick of the word hamstring after another injury
Jurgen Klopp had them rolling in the Twitter aisles when he revealed Divock Origi suffered a hamstring injury in Liverpool's victory over Leicester.
The speedy Belgian striker was selected ahead of Christian Benteke, who came off the bench to score the only goal of the game.
Klopp on Origi's injury: "Hamstring is the shit word of the year for me."

The German wasn't joking. Origi brings the number of hamstring injuries suffered by Liverpool players since Klopp took over at Anfield to TEN.
Even allowing for one of those being glassman Daniel Sturridge, that is a phenomenal number and asks questions of Klopp's training methods.
Renowned as a demanding coach, has the squad's failure to put down a pre-season of Klopp intensity left them open to soft-tissue injuries under the new regime.
Since Klopp took over Jordan Rossiter (twice), Kolo Toure, Jose Enrique, James Milner, Philippe Coutinho, Sturridge, Simon Mignolet, Martin Skrtel and now Origi have been sidelined with hamstring injuries.
And the fans have started to notice...
Looks like yet another hamstring injury. Skrtel, Sturridge, Rossiter all out with, Coutinho just back from same.
