Jurgen Klopp gives injury update on Keita, Jota and Matip

All three players will miss Liverpool’s FA Cup clash against Aston Villa.

The trio set to miss the FA Cup tie against Aston Villa but they are edging for a return to the first-team.

“He will be back soon – but not for the Villa game,” Klopp said when asked if Naby Keita was back in contention.

Matip suffered an adductor injury last month against West Brom.

“Yes – we will try working on that obviously,” Klopp said when asked if Matip would be fit in time to face Man United.

“Until the United game we still have around nine days, so we try.

“He is in a good way but if it will be United or a few days later, I don’t know.

“After the United game we will obviously play every three days again, so I think that’s pretty sure, but for the United game, we will see.”

The German coach confirmed that Jota is still a few weeks away from training have suffered a knee injury at the start of December.

“It will still take time,” the German boss said of Jota’s issue.

“And he is a few weeks away from team training. There is nothing really to say, it takes time. There was no surgery needed, which was good, but it was a proper injury.

“It is not a little knock or something; no, no, and it will still take time. There is no real timeframe there.”
