UJurgen Klopp says Sadio Mane “could” be available to play Manchester City on Sunday, but he hopes Diogo Jota will stay out of the game for a few more weeks.

 

Klopp’s two dynamic forwards were absent on Wednesday night when the Reds fell in a disappointing 1-0 loss to Brighton at Anfield.

The defeat leaves Liverpool in fourth place and seven points behind City, who have a game in hands, while Brighton is 10 points behind the last three teams on the table.

 

Jota was pictured doing running and ball drills Wednesday for the first time since injuring his knee in December.

The Portugal international was enjoying a devastating start to the Reds’ career with nine goals in his first 17 appearances for the club and has missed a lot.

 

Meanwhile, Mane suffered a minor injury in last week’s 3-1 win over Tottenham and has missed the Reds last two games.

Speaking at his post-match press conference after Brighton’s defeat, Klopp gave an update on the condition of the two wingers.

 

“Diogo is, I don’t know exactly, a couple of weeks, two, three, four, I’m not sure,” Klopp said.

 

“And we will see Sadio. It may be available on the weekend, I don’t know. He did not train with the team today. We will see.’

 

Klopp admitted that Brighton was the better of the two teams at Anfield and he feels that his team suffered from mental fatigue
