The 19-year-old has suffered a small fracture, revealed following a scan, and will require a longer period of rest than Liverpool had originally thought.

The teenager, who impressed in the second half of last season when making eight Premier League appearances, had been involved in the Reds’ opening pre-season fixtures, but picked up the injury on the summer tour of the USA and is not now expected back until the end of September.

Ojo is likely to be part of Jurgen Klopp’s first-team squad when he is fit although there are suggestions he could be allowed out on loan to another Premier League club, or one in the Championship, in order to secure regular action.
