Liverpool fans have spotted the moment that ended Diogo Jota's season after the winger was ruled out of their final three Premier League fixtures.

Jota scored in the Reds' 4-2 win at Old Trafford against Manchester United on Thursday night but picked up a foot problem which has ended his campaign.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp confirmed the injury, with Sadio Mane coming in for Jota against West Brom.

"No good thing without a bad thing - so, we won at Manchester United but Diogo got something with the bone," Klopp told Sky Sports.

"It's not too serious but serious enough to end the season for him. That's it."

Asked how serious a blow Jota's absence is to his side, he added: "I think about these kinds of things after the season, it's how it is.

"MRI or scans don't help us, let me say that. If someone goes in this machine, I can't remember the last time they came out and it was 'oh it's fine, just pain'.

"It's a while ago. Let's hope we get through these last three games."

Liverpool fans have, understandably, voiced their frustrations at the injury, the latest in a long line across the course of the season.

The Reds have three important fixtures to seal their place in the top four, starting with the Baggies at the Hawthorns, with a win taking them to within one point of Chelsea.

Looking back at the footage from Thursday night, Liverpool supporters have spotted the challenge on Jota, from Eric Bailly, which caused the injury.

As the ball was played into Jota, the Manchester United defender accidently stood on his left foot as Jota played the ball away, earning himself a yellow card and leaving the winger in a crumpled heap.
