Liverpool and Brazilian striker Roberto Firmino could be out for at least more than four weeks with a hamstring injury. The 30-year-old has scored four goals in eight Premier League games this season. He picked up the injury in their 2-0 Wednesday Champions League win over Atletico Madrid.
Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp said losing Roberto Firmino was “a blow”. He also said: “We are talking weeks, still. More than four. I’d consider that a serious injury.” Midfielder Curtis Jones and defender Joe Gomez have also been ruled out of Sunday’s trip to West Ham.
He also said: “Curtis is a completely different story [to Firmino],” said Klopp. “He was very unlucky in training – he got a finger that scratched the eye. He is on the way back, but we have to see how long exactly.”
“He will be back after the international break, for sure, but in the international break, we have to see when he can start doing proper stuff again.” “And Joey, hopefully after the international break as well.”
Liverpool is currently second in the Premier League, three points behind leaders Chelsea. After Sunday, they do not play again until they host Arsenal in the league on 20 November.
Now Portuguese international Diogo Jota will fill in the shoes of the attacking line.
