Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Jota injury update

A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react to comments from Portugal coach Fernando Santos – reported by Goal – regarding the fitness of Diogo Jota.

Jota was not involved in his country’s win over Qatar last week. And it appears that he facing a battle to be fit for their World Cup qualifier with Luxembourg on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old sat out the open training session, working instead on his own. And Santos has now suggested that it is looking unlikely that he will play their next game.

“He trained a while ago, increased the intensity today with (physio) Joao Brito, but he didn’t train with us,” he said, as reported by Goal.

As noted by Goal, Jota sat out 21 games due to injury last season. So it would be a real blow for Jurgen Klopp’s men if was not able to feature against Watford this weekend.

It is a particularly bitter pill for Liverpool fans to swallow with the list of unavailable players for the clash with the Hornets growing.

Of course, Alisson and Fabinho are set to miss out after going away to link up with the Brazil national team.

Meanwhile, Klopp has a number of injuries to contend with.

With that in mind, here is how some of the Liverpool supporters have reacted to Santos’s comments…
