Breaking news, Diogo Jota's injury and recovery time has been revealed

After the final whistle, Liverpool returned to Merseyside with two injured players in Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota, while Darwin Nunez, who also came on as a substitute, is a doubt. Diogo Jota is one of the most affected, as the Portuguese has been examined in more detail on his right knee, and the busy scanner is bad news for Jürgen Klopp's already limited squad.

According to the information it could be a posterior cruciate ligament injury, although a couple more scans need to be done, this is terrible news, as if a serious injury is present, Jota could miss the challenge of the season. This news is terrible for Klopp who will be without one of his best players at the moment, but even worse for the player, who was performing at an outstanding level.

During the last two months and before the multiple injuries that were present in Liverpool at the end of last year, Diogo Jota took a very important role, and it is that the Portuguese has become an important scorer, since so far this year he has scored a total of 6 goals and has made 4 assists. He has thus contributed 10 goals in 10 games.

Unfortunate news for the fans

After the terrible news of Diogo Jota's possible injury, fans and Klopp are grieving while Cody Gakpo sees it as the chance he needed to shine for the Reds. The Dutchman will be tasked with replacing Jota and being the player who can make a difference when coming on as a substitute or starting games. During the last 10 games Gakpo has only played 446 minutes out of a possible 900, scoring 3 goals and 2 assists, so with more playing time he will have to prove that what he needed was playing time to show his full potential.
