Situations get dire for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool



Situations get dire for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool

No way out it would seem for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side who continue to be ravaged by a list of growing injuries to its team.

Following the injury scare at the weekend against Brentford, the Liverpool boss has now confirmed the fears of every Liverpool fan in his latest pre-match press conference ahead of the premier league clash versus Luton Town.

According to Jurgen Klopp, it is currently a situation that doesn’t look that good even though he remains reluctant to put a time frame on the heavy blow that is Diogo Jota’s injury.

In his press conference, the former Borussia Dortmund boss revealed that the Portugal international suffered a knee problem that forced him off against Brentford in the first half in what was an eventual 4-1 win.

Added to Jota, midfielder, Curtis Jones is confirmed to have suffered a bone/ligament issue, while star goalkeeper, Alisson Becker is confirmed to have incurred a hamstring injury prior to the Brentford match.

The Liverpool manager insist their absence will be “for the foreseeable”.

“Diogo Jota knee issue, ruled out — with him it will take more than a month. Alisson with a muscle injury, ruled out. Curtis with a bone ligament issue, ruled out. Trent and Szoboszlai, not ready yet” Jurgen Klopp confirmed.

“The others we will deal with day by day, with muscle things. Tomorrow you will see who made it and who didn’t make it. As long as we have 11 players we will go for it.”

On facing a Luton Town side that has the presence of Arsenal player, Sambi Lokonga in the team, the German expressed some worries ahead of the clash, throwing some light hearted humor on the prospect of Lokonga doing his parent club a favor by helping Luton to a win.

“When you see Albert Sambi-Lokonga playing and you think… oh! He’s an Arsenal player and they loaned him? Interesting” Klopp joked.

In a related report, Liverpool star, Diogo Jota reacted to the prospect of being out of the team for an extended period, taking to his Twitter page to address the news;
