Jota Doubtful For  Liverpool vs Man City FA Cup Semi-final Clash

Liverpool will check on Diogo Jota’s condition for this weekend’s Emirates FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.

The Reds disclosed this in a release on their website on Thursday.

Jota sustained a knock during Wednesday night’s Champions League draw with Benfica and will need to be assessed on Friday to decide his availability to face City at Wembley on Saturday.

And when asked for a squad fitness update at his pre-match press conference, Jürgen Klopp said: “I said last night that Diogo got a knock – that swelled up slightly directly after the game, obviously while I was in the press conference.

“Diogo, good chance he will be alright but we need to have a closer look tomorrow. That’s it.”

The Portuguese international has been impressive for Klopp’s side this season, scoring 21 goals in 43 appearances.

He was on target in last weekend’s 2-2 draw against City at the Etihad.
