Jota did not feature in Portugal’s 3-0 friendly win over Qatar at the weekend, and was released from the national team camp on Tuesday hours before the World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg.
It is reported the forward has a muscle injury and he will be assessed on his return to Liverpool ahead of the Premier League resuming this weekend.
Jota has been in impressive form this season, combining well alongside Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. The 24-year-old has started each of Liverpool’s past six games and scored three goals.
That could put their participation in the Watford game in doubt as manager Jurgen Klopp will have to decide if they are in shape for a match that kicks off at 12.30pm the following day.
The game at Vicarage Road will mark the return of Claudio Ranieri to the Premier League, with Watford appointing him their manager after sacking Xisco Munoz.
