Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp provides Diogo Jota injury update

The Portuguese could be set for an upcoming spell on the sidelines


Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has, on Sunday evening, provided an update on the wellbeing of key attacker Diogo Jota.

For those not aware, Jota set pulses racing across the red half of Merseyside earlier today.

This came upon the former Wolves standout pulling up in the final moments of Liverpool’s hard-fought downing of Manchester City.

After writhing in pain on the Anfield turf, Jota was eventually stretchered off by the hosts’ medical team, sparking fears of a potentially lengthy incoming spell on the sidelines.

Speaking to the media post-match, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of his versatile forward’s situation was put to the aforementioned Jurgen Klopp.

The German, though, was keen to keep his cards close to his chest.

Citing a potential muscular injury, Klopp confirmed that, ahead of a round of medical tests, all associated with the Reds must simply ‘wait to see how bad it is’.

Turning attentions back towards the action itself on Sunday, Jota’s attacking partner in crime, Mohamed Salah, ultimately proved match-winner on Merseyside.

This came as the Egyptian, fifteen minutes from time, did superbly to roll Joao Cancelo, before slotting beyond the advancing Ederson in style:
