A number of Liverpool fans have been reacting in worried fashion after Diogo Jota missed training ahead of Saturday’s clash with Newcastle United.
The Reds host the Magpies this weekend, in what represents a must-win game for the Premier League champions.
Victory for Jurgen Klopp’s men would take them above both Chelsea and West Ham in the table, with the pair meeting at the London Stadium later in the day.
Liverpool continue to be plagued by a number of injury problems, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson all key absentees.
Although it hasn’t been confirmed – Jurgen Klopp’s press conference is later on Friday – there are concerns that Jota may have joined them on the treatment table, having not taken part in training (Liverpool Echo) on Thursday.
It may be that he was simply being rested or doing indoor work, but considering how this season has panned out, another injury wouldn’t be a surprise.
Liverpool fans bemoan potential Jota injury
These Liverpool supporters took to Twitter to give their thoughts on another possible fitness issue for the Reds, with negativity the order of the day.
“Now what has happened to Jota? What’s the point?”
“No Jota? What the hell am I reading?”
“What are they doing in training? Only 7 players in the squad haven’t had an injury this season, that’s unacceptable”
“No no no no no“
“Why isn’t this affecting me? Think we have just got to the point where we’re use to it“
“Why always if one person returns another player get injured? Can someone please fire our medical staff, they clearly doing a bad job on keeping our players fit“
