Jurgen Klopp has worried Liverpool fans with update on three players who went off injured in Brentford win

Jurgen Klopp has worried Liverpool fans with update on three players who went off injured in Brentford win

The injuries are piling up.

Jurgen Klopp has issued a worrying update after three key players picked up injuries during Liverpool's defeat of Brentford.

Liverpool beat Brentford 4-1 in West London on Saturday, extending their lead at the top of the Premier League table to five points.

Darwin Nunez put his side ahead with a delightful lob 10 minutes before half-time, before Alexis Mac Allister, Mohamed Salah and Cody Gakpo converted their chances in the second half.

However, the win could come with significant implications for Liverpool's bid to stop Manchester City winning a fourth successive Premier League title.

Moments before Nunez put Liverpool ahead, Curtis Jones had to be withdrawn due to injury.

10 minutes later Diogo Jota was stretchered off the field after receiving treatment for a knee issue for several minutes. The Portuguese attacker landed heavily after competing for the ball.

To round off Klopp's injury misery, goalscorer Nunez did not emerge for the second half and was replaced by Gakpo.

After the match, Klopp gave an update that will worry Liverpool fans with the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea coming up next weekend.

"It doesn’t look good in the first moment, but we have to wait… sometimes you get a positive surprise when you get the diagnosis," the German coach said when asked about the injuries suffered by Jota and Gakpo.

"Darwin Nunez, we are not sure if he has something or not. He felt something. We will see."

According to Ian Doyle of the Liverpool Echo, Jones bordered Liverpool's team bus after the match wearing a protective boot, while Jota was spotted wearing a knee brace. Both were using crutches.

According to Doyle, Nunez bordered the bus unaided and didn't appear to be limping.

The trio have added to what was already an injury crisis at Anfield.

On Friday goalkeeper Alisson injured his hamstring, meaning Caoimhin Kelleher played the full 90 minutes at the Gtech Community Stadium.

The likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dominik Szoboszlai, Joel Matip, Stefan Bajcetic and Thiago Alcantara were already unavailable through a mixture of illness and injury.

Klopp will want to mark his final season in charge at Anfield with some silverware, but he might have a threadbare squad at his disposal for the Carabao Cup final at Wembley in a week's time.
