Jota, however, may still be a month away.

Liverpool FC’s defeat to Brighton at home effectively ended their title challenge. However, a match against Manchester City at Anfield still looms. Speaking to the press after the Brighton game, Klopp gave us an update on Sadio’s condition, who has missed the Reds’ last two games with a muscle issue.

Sadio we will see. He might be available for the weekend, I don’t know. He didn’t train with the team today. We will see.

Diogo Jota, despite being seen in team training, is still doubtful to feature anytime soon.

Diogo is – I don’t know exactly – a couple of weeks, two, three, four. I’m not sure.

The good news for Klopp is that another duo will have a chance of featuring against City. Brazilian duo Alisson Becker and Fabinho were both unavailable against Brighton. Fabinho is nursing a muscle problem, while Alisson fell ill on the morning of the game.
