Liverpool midfielder Fabinho is a fitness doubt for his side's FA Cup final against Chelsea on Saturday.
The Brazil international, 28, is set to undergo a scan after being forced off during the first half of Tuesday's 2-1 win at Aston Villa.
Fabinho pulled up holding his hamstring after overstretching to try to reach the ball and was replaced by Jordan Henderson soon after in the 30th minute.
Jurgen Klopp said of Fabinho's withdrawal: “He felt a muscle, not too much. He’s quite positive but I’m not sure what I can make of that. We will see.”
Liverpool managed to claim all three points on Tuesday night despite going a goal behind after just three minutes.
Douglas Luiz opened the scoring before Joel Matip equalised just three minutes later.
Sadio Mane won the game for Klopp's side in the 65th minute to leave Liverpool level on points with leaders Manchester City.
