Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Diogo Jota has been ruled out for the rest of Liverpool’s season after sustaining a foot injury.
The Portugal international picked up the injury during Thursday’s 4-2 victory at Manchester United and has therefore been ruled out of the Reds’ trip to West Brom at The Hawthorns on Sunday.
Klopp gave a further update on Jota’s condition during his media duties at the fixture.
“No good thing without a bad thing – so, we won at Manchester United but Diogo got something with the bone,” Klopp told Sky Sports.
“Not too serious but serious enough to end the season. That’s it.”
