Many Liverpool fans reacted in relief after news emerged regarding the fitness of crocked star Diogo Jota.
According to The Athletic journalist James Pearce, the 24-year-old will not be ready to feature against Manchester City as Sunday will come too soon for him. However, the Portugal international could make a return against either Leicester City or RB Leipzig in the Champions League.
Jota has been absent since December after picking up a knee injury during his side’s 1-1 draw against FC Midtjylland in the Champions League – a dead rubber game where Liverpool had already qualified for the Last 16 of the competition.
Do Liverpool miss Jota badly?
With Liverpool currently struggling to score goals, supporters welcomed the news of Jota’s progress, with some desperate to see him return to the fold.
Fans delighted with Jota update
“This is good news… YNWA!!”
“What I wanted to read”
“The quicker he’s back the better”
“Great that Jota will be back for Champions League push, now we’ve conceded the League…”
“He is the key to our season either CL or PL if a miracle happens”
