Diogo Jota stretchered off and huge doubt for World Cup in worrying scenes at end of Liverpool clash with Man City | The Sun

DIOGO JOTA was stretchered off at the end of Liverpool's 1-0 win over Manchester City and is now a doubt for the World Cup.

The Portuguese international, 25, seemed to overstretch when flicking the ball on during stoppage-time at Anfield.

A lengthy delay ensued before the forward was eventually taken from the pitch on a stretcher.

And with just one month until the World Cup, Portugal will now be biting their fingernails over his availability for the tournament.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will also be concerned after it was revealed earlier this month that Luis Diaz is expected to be out for the rest of 2022.

It leaves the Reds with Darwin Nunez, Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Fabio Carvalho as their forward options.

Harvey Elliott can also float between midfield and the attacking positions.

Jota is yet to score in eight appearances for Liverpool so far this season.

But he has been capped 29 times by the Portuguese national team, netting 10 times for his country.

Meanwhile, Liverpool produced their best performance of the season so far to beat Manchester City.
