Liverpool appear to have a serious injury problem over forward Diogo Jota with the player’ having been stretchered off during Liverpool’s win over Manchester City.
The former Wolves forward went down to ground late on at Anfield and looked to be in serious discomfort as he was helped off the pitch.

Indeed, in an update the Athletic claims there are now worries Jota could miss the World Cup, with his chances of featuring said to be ‘in doubt’. The report adds he will have a scan on his calf injury today.
The Portugal striker has made eight appearances for the Reds at Premier League and Champions League level but his only goal this terms came for his country against the Czech Republic in the Nations League.
