Jota who has only started twice this season, returned to full fitness late in the season so far, but his latest setback will further hinder him and limit Klopp's options in a busy period ahead of the World Cup break.

Diogo Jota was forced off against City on Sunday and will miss Liverpool's next game amid fears his injury could keep him out for longer.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the Portuguese forward will miss Wednesday night's game against West Ham.

The club are now awaiting a full diagnosis after Jota was taken off a stretcher at injury time.

"We miss the next one with Diogo," Klopp said.

"He felt real pain in that moment but I have no idea how bad it is. If Diogo stays down it is not good." He also went on to add: "I saw it on the side on the screen, I am the first who saw it.

"When I saw he goes down and there was not a lot of contact, you can see a little bit that somebody kicks his foot and maybe the muscle got overstretched, 96 minutes, that’s not good for the muscle."
