The Portuguese forward was replaced by eventual goalscorer Roberto Firmino at the interval, with Klopp making three further subs just before the hour – all of which proved pivotal in getting such an impressive result.
Speaking to BT Sport post-match, Klopp said: “I’m really happy, apart from Diogo had to go off with something around the ankle ligament.
“He could play on, [which is] maybe a good sign but at half-time the ankle was swollen and we had to change.”
Jota’s issue comes when Klopp had a full squad to choose from for the last two games – a very rare occurence.
With seven games in the next 24 days, Klopp will be hoping that neither issue is serious.
