Latest on Jota injury blow

Liverpool’s 1-0 victory over Man City at Anfield on Sunday was bittersweet, after Diogo Jota picked up what appears to be a calf injury.

The Portuguese forward was forced to leave the field during the final minute of added time and will be assessed by the club on Monday.

“We miss the next one with Diogo,” Klopp confirmed after the game. “He felt real pain in that moment but I have no idea how bad it is.

“If Diogo stays down it is not good. I saw it on the side on the screen, I am the first who saw it.

“When I saw he goes down and there was not a lot of contact, you can see a little bit that somebody kicks his foot and maybe the muscle got overstretched, 96 minutes, that’s not good for the muscle.”

Jota will miss Wednesday night’s Premier League game with West Ham, but we wait to see whether he will be available for Saturday’s game at Nottingham Forest.
