Jürgen Klopp delivers worrying Alisson & Jota injury update ahead of Liverpool vs Man City

Jürgen Klopp has given an injury update on both Alisson Becker and Diogo Jota ahead of Saturday’s Community Shield.

Jürgen Klopp has been speaking about Liverpool’s team news ahead of Saturday’s Community Shield.

The Reds take on Manchester City as last season’s top two go head to head at Wembley Stadium.

Klopp’s side head into the match looking to complete the full set of domestic trophies won during the German’s tenure.

However, the Merseyside club’s hopes of winning the Shield have been dealt a major blow following Klopp’s latest injury update.

No Alisson or Jota vs Man City

Jürgen Klopp has confirmed that both Alisson Becker and Diogo Jota will miss Saturday’s Community Shield.

Alisson has been struggling with a back injury and this will see him miss the match.

The Brazilian is, however, back in training and expected to be ready for the first league game of the season against Fulham.

Diogo Jota is set for a more lengthy spell out as he struggles with a thigh injury.

The forward is expected to return to action sometime next month.

Klopp told reporters:

“No Allison or Diogo...

“Ali trained today more than the day before so he will definitly be available for Fulham but not for the weekend.

“The same for Diogo, Diogo was not here with us, how could he play a football game, that could take a while, unfortunately.”
