Liverpool have been handed a slight injury concern with Diogo Jota ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final with Manchester City at Wembley.
The Portugal international featured from the first whistle in the Champions League clash with Benfica on Wednesday night before being withdrawn just shy of the hour mark in an apparent tactical switch.
However, Jurgen Klopp revealed at his pre-match press conference that Jota was carrying a slight knock, and the 25-year-old will need to be assessed ahead of the clash with Pep Guardiola‘s men.
“Diogo has a slight knock, but there is a good chance he will be all right – we need to have a closer look tomorrow. That is it,” Klopp told reporters.
The Reds are otherwise in good shape for a swift reunion with Guardiola’s side, who saw Kyle Walker and Kevin De Bruyne both suffer ankle injuries in their European showdown with Atletico Madrid.
Jota scored the winner for the Reds in their 1-0 quarter-final victory over Nottingham Forest last month – one of 21 strikes the former Wolverhampton Wanderers man has registered in all tournaments this season.
