Jurgen Klopp gives update on Alisson and Diogo Jota injuries

Jurgen Klopp has provided an injury update on Alisson and Diogo Jota after both picked up problems in Liverpool's draw with Manchester City.

Liverpool salvaged a point at the Etihad, with Trent Alexander-Arnold's strike 10 minutes from time cancelling out Erling Haaland's first-half opener.

However, a dampener was put on the result when in the final minute of stoppage time, Alisson went down, seemingly with a muscle injury.

It was Liverpool's second casualty of the day, with Jota also forced to make way earlier in the second half.

The Reds boss has provided an update on the situation.

"The shadow on this game is obviously that Ali felt something and Diogo felt something – something we have to assess and then we will see," Klopp said.

Expanding further on Alisson's fitness, he added: "I hope it’s not that serious, but I don't have the answer - no clue in the moment what it is.

"I spoke to him and he said he only felt [it] a little bit, but we have to wait for the scan."

Speaking on the wider performance, Klopp has insisted that despite the impressive result, his side still have a lot to prove.

"For us I think we passed a test today," he added. "I’m not sure it was the test.

"Last year when the team had played long together – much longer than this team now – we had no real chance in this game. Today we had a chance.

"I’m not silly, I see the game, so if you ask me who would have won the game more likely, it was City obviously.

"But we had our moments and we won games with lesser chances against City, to be honest, from counter-attacking – and if we could have used them better then it would have been a very interesting game.

Klopp was also sure to single out Liverpool's goalscorer, Alexander-Arnold, for high praise after the defender put in a complete defender in challenging circumstances, holding off the tide of the electrifying Jeremy Doku while also showing off his passing range from midfield.

"He played a really good game, super-influential," he said.

"We changed it, if you want, with the position; we brought him and made it more clear where he has to be in these moments.

"But he did that really well and had still his moments with Doku where he was really strong in the one-on-one situations. You could see in a lot of moments how difficult it is against him, he is a really good dribbler.

"Trent was pretty influential today, in a good way."
