Liverpool star Diogo Jota ruled out for the rest of the season following foot injury sustained in win at Manchester United as club are dealt blow in their bid to secure top-four spot
Liverpool forward Diogo Jota has been ruled out for the rest of the season due a foot injury, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.
Jota picked up the problem in the pulsating 4-2 victory over Manchester United on Thursday and, as a result, was absent from the club’s crunch clash at West Brom.
In his pre-match press duties, Klopp revealed that the issue is ‘not too serious’, although the winger will sit out the rest of his team’s top-four push.
Klopp told Sky Sports: ‘No good thing without a bad thing – so, we won at Manchester United but Diogo got something with the bone.
‘Not too serious but serious enough to end the season. That’s it.’
Former Wolves man Jota has made 18 Premier League appearances this season, scoring nine goals.
