Llorente was taken off in the 33rd minute and Whites head coach Marcelo Bielsa revealed in his post-match press conference that the defender had a muscular problem but that he was unsure of the severity of the injury.

But Spanish international centre-back Llorente took to his Instagram page on Monday morning to provide a very positive update in the aftermath of Sunday's 3-0 reverse.

"Yesterday was a tough day due to the defeat at home and the injury," said Llorente.
