Klopp delivers injury update on Liverpool trio

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp delivered an injury update on Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota and Curtis Jones following victory over Brentford on Saturday. 

Jones was replaced by Ryan Gravenberch after going down injured a half an hour into the game at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Jota had to be stretchered off the pitch just before halftime after Christian Norgaard landed on the Portuguese forward.

 

Nunez followed suit at the break, replaced by Cody Gakpo for an unspecified issue after opening the scoring with a superb chip.

Klopp confirmed that Jones suffered a knock in the first half, while Nunez “felt something” but did not offer specifics on the Uruguayan’s condition.

“It is mixed emotions, we lost players which we don’t know how serious it is. It doesn’t look great for either of them,” the German told TNT Sports after the win.

 

“I think there was a knock on Curtis. It was a challenge with Diogo as well and Darwin we are not sure if he has something or not, he felt something.

“We will see. It was never easy for us, at the moment it is fine. We have 57 points and in a few days play again.”

Nunez opened the scoring with a superb chip after 34 minutes before Alexis Mac Allister and the returning Mo Salah extended their lead in the second half. Ivan Toney got one back, but Cody Gakpo scored Liverpool‘s fourth to see them go five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

“What the boys did after 15 minutes was exceptional against a team set up to annoy you,” Klopp continued.

“Eighteen times a set piece is flying into your box, you need bodies and luck in a moment and a goalie as well, who played an incredible game.

“We played a good game from a specific moment on. We controlled them as much as you can and we are happy about that.”
