Many Liverpool fans were not happy with the update given regarding Diogo Jota’s fitness at Jurgen Klopp’s press conference on Wednesday.
Speaking in his pre-Chelsea press conference (via Paul Joyce), manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that the Brazilian duo Alisson Becker and Fabinho would return for their Premier League clash against Chelsea.
However, he added that the 24-year-old Portuguese forward still has to be assessed after missing their 2-0 win against Sheffield United due to a sudden illness.
Jota has not been seen in a competitive game for Liverpool since their 1-1 draw to FC Midtjylland in the Champions League back in December – where he sustained a serious knee injury.
Will Jota's return see an end to Liverpool's slump?
Because of this, supporters are starting to become impatient due to the Reds’ recent misfortune in front of goal, making their feelings clear to Joyce on Twitter.
Fans getting restless over Jota whereabouts
“What are we assessing him for now? Lord almighty”
“They lie all the time”
“Assessed from an ‘illness’ that kept him out Sunday?”
“WHY IS JOTA IN DOUBT I HATE THIS GAME”
“Assessed for what? It’s March”
“Really tired of waiting too”
