Liverpool blow: Jurgen Klopp suggests Diogo Jota will NOT play vs Fulham

Diogo Jota is a major doubt for Liverpool vs Fulham...

Diogo Jota was heavily involved in the action on Sunday as he controversially avoided a red card and scored a last-minute winner against Spurs.

The forward was shown just a yellow card for a high boot on Oliver Skipp before saving Liverpool’s blushes with a last-gasp winner.

Liverpool looked to have blown a three-goal lead before Jota netted a fourth in the 94th minute.

But ahead of their clash with Fulham, Jurgen Klopp has revealed that the Portugese has been struggling with a back issue.

Klopp: ”Diogo is struggling”

Jurgen Klopp says that Roberto Firmino is still out and Jota is a doubt for the game.

Firmino has returned to training but is not yet ready to play.

He struggled against Spurs and may not be risked for the game on Wednesday.

Klopp revealed: “He got, in the West Ham game, a knock in the back, a bruised rib, could not train before the [Tottenham] game but could play without an injection or whatever, but got another knock immediately when he came on.

“You might have seen the celebrations of Diogo, he was sitting down pretty slowly.

“He didn’t train since then so that is one that is a doubt… he is a doubt at least but I hope he can recover until tomorrow night.”
