Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Diogo Jota could be out of action for up to two months after sustaining a knee injury.
The Portuguese picked up the problem during the 1-1 Champions League draw against FC Midtjylland on Wednesday.
It was initially suggested that he may have picked up a knock, but Klopp has now confirmed that the injury is much more serious.
“He will be out for a while. We don’t know exactly but one-and-a-half, two months. We don’t know exactly. It’s pretty similar with Kostas Tsimikas, by the way. Unbelievable,” He told via Liverpoolfc.com.
Jota won’t require any surgery after the setback, but it is certainly a big blow for the Reds, who are already without several first-team stars.
Liverpool missed the chance to go top of the Premier League standings after a frustrating 1- 1 draw against Fulham on the road.
They had beaten the Cottagers in six successive league meetings, but struggled to break through them, barring a single goal via the penalty spot.
