Jurgen Klopp provides Diogo Jota and Virgil van Dijk Liverpool injury updates ahead of Liverpool’s upcoming clash against Tottenham.



Jurgen Klopp has delivered injury updates on Diogo Jota and Virgil van Dijk ahead of Liverpool’s upcoming clash against Tottenham.


Jurgen Klopp has given updates on the injuries of Diogo Jota and Virgil van Dijk ahead of Liverpool’s upcoming match. Van Dijk is uncertain for the Premier League game against Tottenham on Sunday, as confirmed by Klopp.


Virgil van Dijk is uncertain to play in Liverpool’s upcoming Premier League match against Tottenham this Sunday, as confirmed by Jurgen Klopp.


Liverpool’s chances of winning the title have significantly decreased after losing to Everton and drawing against West Ham last week.


Despite this setback, Liverpool has secured a spot in the Champions League following Tottenham’s 2-0 loss to Chelsea on Thursday.


Klopp will face Spurs at Anfield in what will be one of his last home league matches before leaving at the end of the season.


However, it appears that the German manager will have to do without his captain as Van Dijk, who has only missed two league games this season, was not present during Thursday’s training session.


During his pre-match press conference on Friday, Klopp confirmed, “Virgil wasn’t in team training yesterday. He will participate in parts of team training today, so we will have to wait and see.”


In other news, Conor Bradley may be considered for a return to the squad following his ankle injury. However, Diogo Jota will not be available for the game as he is still recovering from an injury he sustained against Fulham in late April.


Liverpool suffered a devastating 2-1 defeat against Spurs in September, a match that was marred by VAR controversy when Luis Diaz’s goal was wrongly disallowed.


As Klopp gets ready to host their rivals from north London at Anfield, the 56-year-old is determined to rectify the mistakes made in their previous clash.


“While I don’t want to dwell on it, I can’t ignore the Tottenham game – it was incredibly bizarre,” he expressed.


Simon Hooper, who officiated the match in September, stood beside me during the Everton game. I attempted to push it out of my mind, but it lingered.


“It wasn’t Spurs’ fault that evening; they simply competed in the game. However, I have 500 reasons why I would like to emerge victorious in that match, and the manner in which we lost the previous one is one of them.”
