NewsDiogo Jota doubtful for Liverpool v Fulham
Diogo Jota is a doubt for Liverpool’s meeting with Fulham.
The No.20, who scored a dramatic 95th-minute winner against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, is being monitored ahead of Wednesday night’s game after sustaining a further knock after coming off the bench versus Spurs.
Jürgen Klopp, who also confirmed Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita will miss the clash with Marco Silva’s side, told the media on Tuesday afternoon: “In our situation Bobby is out and Diogo struggles.
“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.”
On the general condition of his squad, Klopp said: “Bobby [is] training, he looks good, not ready for the game, but is doing more and more so [we are] waiting for him in team training again. Pretty much the same for Naby.
“I think that’s it pretty much. Of course the long-term injuries, they are not involved.”
