Liverpool’s luck with injuries all season has been atrocious, to say the least. Jurgen Klopp has seen his squad decimated in vast numbers this term. Luckily, the club’s luck may be turning around, at last. A Diogo Jota injury update from The Athletic could see the Portuguese sensation return this month – and supporters have reacted on Twitter.
Diogo Jota injury
Jota’s prolonged knee injury was horrendously ill-timed given he was in the form of his life beforehand.
The £41 million from Wolves has clocked up a whopping nine goals in his opening 17 Liverpool appearances, after all.
The gut-wrenching blow took place on December 9, during a Champions League dead-rubber against FC Midtjylland.
Jota, 24, went down clutching his leg during the 1-1 draw in Denmark, and subsequently, was ruled out for two months.

Considering Klopp has assembled the best Liverpool squad in living memory, fans, unsurprisingly, are desperate to see us back to full complement.
Thiago Alcantara made his long-awaited return against Newcastle on Wednesday, and thankfully, The Athletic has more good news for Kopites.
James Pearce has revealed that Jota could return by the end of January, saying he is making good progress.
So, Jota could return to the fold within a matter of weeks. As a result, Liverpool supporters are unsurprisingly over the moon that the wait for his return will be shorter than expected.
Here are a number of responses from Kopites reacting to the latest reports.
