Andy Robertson injury latest as Diogo Jota outlines 'frustration' after Liverpool setback

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has issued an update on the fitness of defender Andy Robertson after the draw against Aston Villa. Portuguese international Diogo Jota has also revealed how 'frustrating' it is to be injured once again.

Despite leading 3-1 with just five minutes to go in the game, Liverpool was held to a frustrating 3-3 draw with Villa in the Monday Night Football clash. An own-goal from World Cup winner Emiliano Martínez opened the scoring in the second minute before Youri Tielemans equalized for the host 10 minutes later.

Cody Gakpo would restore the Liverpool lead before half-time, with Jarell Quansah netting his first Premier League goal after the restart to extend the advantage to two goals. Unai Emery then brought Colombian international Jhon Durán on in the 79th minute, where he would go on to score a quick-fire brace to level the scoreline.

After the final whistle, once Klopp had soaked in the atmosphere from the traveling Liverpool fans for one last time, the Reds boss offered an update on the fitness of Scotland international Robertson, who missed the game due to what was described as a minor issue. "I saw him this morning and he told me he is ready to train from tomorrow on," Klopp said. "That's the situation."

However, the situation for forward Jota is less promising, after he spoke to the media while attending the World Snooker Championship recently. "I had a knee injury at the beginning of the year and now I came back but got injured again," he said.

"It’s so frustrating, especially when you feel like the team needs you. We were fighting for a lot of titles and you can’t play. That’s very frustrating. It’s so hard (watching from the sidelines) 100 times worse than playing."

Robertson will return to training this week and could be in contention to face Wolverhampton Wanderers in the final game of the season on Sunday, May 19. Jota faces a race against time to feature against his former side at Anfield in Klopp's final game. says: Having Robertson back in the squad will be a huge boost, although Joe Gomez filled in well for the left-back against Villa. He played a key role in Gakpo's goal and if Robertson isn't 100 per cent, he could do so again. However, Klopp will want the Scottish defender back in the line-up, as he looks to end his Liverpool career on a high.
