Jota isn’t out for the remainder of the season...?

Speaking ahead of Liverpool FC’s trip to Turf Moor, Jürgen Klopp spoke on the fitness status of James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita... and a rather surprising update of Diogo Jota:

Millie will train today but is that then enough for being involved tomorrow? I will see. Ox was ill, [so] yes, Ox is back. Naby wasn’t part of team training yet so that will not be enough until tomorrow for sure. Ox was in team training so he is back.

For Diogo, who was previously ruled out for the rest of the season before the game against West Bromwich Albion, a CT scan has shed more light, and he’s now going to have a slim chance of playing our last game of the season:

When the swelling went down, we did another picture and it looked better than in the first place with the first scan. With the CT [scan] you could see it better.

So, there is a tiny, tiny little chance for him for the weekend, but it depends how it improves now. We have to see that.

It is obviously good news for Portugal and for Diogo himself, with the Euros not in danger at all. That’s good, but if it’s good enough for us, we will see.
