    Jurgen Klopp has been forced to cope without two of his key players so far this season as the struggling Reds continue to deal with injury issues.

    Although, they are moving closer to making it back to full fitness after working hard on their recovery.

    How long is Luis Diaz out for? 

    Diaz is expected to be out of action until March after he suffered a setback. 

    He picked up the injury during a 3-2 defeat against Arsenal in October, ruling him out for the remainder of the first half of the season. 

    Liverpool were then given hope for his return after two months out as he was included in their squad for their Dubai training camp.

    However, he was sent home early after Klopp revealed that he had an incident in training.

    The Reds boss said: “It’s clear it’s a big disappointment for all of us, for him as well.”

    But Diaz has now posted an encouraging update on his fitness as he is filmed completing a gym session.

    How long is Diogo Jota out for? 

    As for Jota, he is expected to be out until late February.

    The forward was stretchered off in stoppage time at the Etihad Stadium against Man City earlier this season after he picked up a calf injury. 

    This forced him to miss out on the World Cup with Portugal when his place in the squad was all but certain. 

    Although the club has now issued an update stating Jota is making ‘good progress’ in his rehabilitation programme.

    Liverpool boss Klopp has also given a recent update on his forward’s fitness, saying: “I don’t know exactly how long.

    “He looks really good, he is out there on the pitch, he is doing a lot of stuff already, but another few weeks.”

    Klopp was also asked if Jota would be back for Liverpool’s huge Champions League clash with Real Madrid which is on February 21.

    He said: “From my point of, yes, but I don’t know.”

    The Reds will be hoping to have two of their key attackers back as soon as possible as they desperately search some positivity this season.
