Losing Jota on top of Diaz for an incredibly busy part of the season was entirely predictable with how the start of our season has gone.  The silver lining is the opportunity it gives to Darwin and/or Carvalho.

On the World Cup it's sad for him and I've got a lot of empathy for him.  There's a bit of poetic justice in Portgual being without him after they left us without him for three months due to the bloody Nations League.  It also removes any concerns about wanting Portugal to do well - without Jota and with the team of arrogant snides they have I'd be happy to see them get smashed.  The thought of Ronaldo lifting a World Cup in Qatar is like dystopia.

 :lmao So true.

Hard luck for Diogo. Will any of our forwards make it to and start in Qatar? Salah DNQ, Diaz DNQ & now injured, Jota injured, Firmino (?), Mane gone. That leaves Nunez as the most likely representative from our forward line and maybe Carvalho as a sub. Looking forward to cheering on...Uruguay.

I feel bad for him, had a set back before the season started and then a freak injury in the city game. Looks like he just overextended and pulled his calf muscle

Sucks he misses out on his first world cup too though I am thankful for the mid season break so Diaz and Jota dont miss near as many games as they would have

Jota has also been sublime since returning, suits the deep forward role or wide mid role so much in the new 4-4-2

Hopefully has a good recovery and ready to go after the world cup same as Diaz

If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

Klopp using the ‘good wife waiting for a husband in prison’ line for Jota’s recovery.

Used it twice before that I can remember. Ox after Roma and Van Dijk after Everton.


Think we might be looking at a grade 3 calf tear so 4 months potentially.

I think it's closer to 2-3 months with no surgury required. No confirmation but grade 3 seems likely.

So hopefully back for Bixing Day, along with Diaz and, more than likely, Keita.

Edit - just realised it’s only two months to Boxing Day!

Should be back in time for next stage of CL, assuming our depleted forwards can get us through.

These days injuries disappoint me a lot more than defeats.

The possibility of Jota being out for most of the season is just so upsetting that i'm barely excited for the upcoming games.

Mané, Firmino & Salah really spoiled us in that department - they were unbreakable injury wise

Like 2020/21, you just gotta firm it and accept that there's always some b*llshit waiting in the corner.

Do we have any details of how long he’s out for? 

Anywhere between 6 weeks and three months form what Klopp had said..

There must be a more accurate prognosis?

well maybe they don't want to mismanage expectations, or put pressure on players to rush back. 

to be honest I can't see what difference it makes, Tepid. 

even if they gave a specific day and time ... doesn't mean he'll deffo be available then - he's back when he's back.

There usually an expectation given though…

In this case it makes the difference between him being back when the league resumes and being back a few weeks later

I’m still cursing that injury at the end of the City game. That knocked the stuffing out of our momentum. Given our squad situation, this was one injury too much.

For me Jota was the reason we won the City game. He played exceptionally and no surprise we won, nor any surprise that we've looked a shadow since he has been injured. What a shame

We're very vague these days. See Kelleher, Konaté, Keita etc. I even remember Klopp saying something like "we don't give out this information, do we?" to the press officer (or whoever it is he interacts with sat next to him from time to time) when asked about specifics of an injury not too long ago.

Not sure what brought about the change but seems like we give away the bare minimum now at least until they're ready to return to training.

Our best attacking performance, as in how the front three worked as a unit and pressed, was when it was him, Salah and Diaz up front against Ajax. Bobby’s pressing has died a death and Nunez also doesnt really press well yet.

I agree expected, anyone who thought Jota would be back in 2022 was living in a dream world. Late January is very much reasonable and I am fine with that as much as it sucks we can be thankful for the mid season break as he will probably back for the CL and not miss a ridiculous amount of PL games like he would have

I guess we'll never know but had Diaz not also been injured I don't think Jota would have played 95+ minutes of that game!  It seems to have been the story of our season that those that aren't injured end up picking up injuries when they wouldn't ordinarily be in a position to have that risk.

The only silver lining is that I don't have to have any warmth to the Portugal national team over the next few weeks.  Jota has a bit of snide about him but he's an angel compared to most of their team.

At least with Jota he generally finds his form quite quickly after injuries so it won't be one like Ox whereby he's back but not really contributing for the remainder of the season.

His under 8s manager kept him on when they were already winning 12-0 and he'd scored 11 of them as the manager loved the feeling of scoring goals.  One of the other team kicked him on the ankle in the last minute.  He's never been the same since.
