Jurgen Klopp confirms huge Liverpool injury blow ahead of West Ham United game

Liverpool have momentum after beating Manchester City, but they have injuries concerns for West Ham.

The Reds, however, are confidently entering the game after a priceless 1-0 win over rivals Manchester City this weekend.

The nature of the win was quite impressive for Jurgen Klopp’s side, as they were without some of their key players, including Colombian Luis Diaz and Naby Keita, while Trent Alexander-Arnold could only play in the final minutes.

Diego Jota, who was one of the heroes of the win against Pep Guardiola’s side, was stretched late in the game, and Jurgen Klopp has confirmed he does not know how long the Portuguese star will be out.

However, the German manager confirmed that the game against West Ham would have him back soon.

Klopp told reporters: “I wish I didn’t have to talk about it. There isn’t much contact and maybe the muscle is overworked. Now we have to see how bad it is.”

Klopp himself is still waiting to be asked by the Premier League board whether he can be sidelined for the game against West Ham after being sent off against City.

But he would be happy to see his striker Mohamed Salah back on the scoresheet and showing his best form of the season so far.

Another Liverpool player who was impressive was Virgil van Dijk, the Dutch defender’s form was a major cause for concern but against City he was back at his best and Klopp will be happy about that.

West Ham arrive at Anfield after a 1-1 draw with Southampton.
