In Summary

 

  • Jones (ankle) left Brentford’s stadium on crutches, but Jota’s injury (knee) appears to be the biggest cause for concern.

 

  • Klopp refused to lose sight of the visit of Luton.

 

Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool “have problems” after they suffered a potential triple injury blow in Saturday’s 4-1 win at Brentford ahead of a crucial run of games.

The Premier League leaders saw Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez taken off injured at Brentford ahead of next Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Chelsea at Wembley

Jones (ankle) left Brentford’s stadium on crutches, but Jota’s injury (knee) appears to be the biggest cause for concern. The decision to take Nunez off at the break was more of a precaution.

“We have to see how much it costs us. We don’t know yet,” said Klopp, who lost Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dominik Szobszlai and Alisson to injury in the past week.

“Curtis Jones got a knock above his ankle. He wasn’t 100 per cent sure what it was. The fact Curtis could not play on tells you something because he would have played on at all costs.Diogo Jota looks the worst. I didn’t see it back but I heard the pictures [of the incident] didn’t look great. We have to see there.’’ Klopp said.

“You can count the games coming up so it would be helpful if we had more than one per position. We have problems we don’t know how big they are. As long as we have 11 players we will go for it.” Klopp added.

Luton Concern

Klopp refused to lose sight of the visit of Luton up next despite that chance to win the first silverware of the season next Sunday.

“We cannot think about the final, we have to think about Luton,Luton deserve all of our focus and attention then we will look to final. After that, we will see how we can play the next game.” Kloop noted
