Liverpool faces injury setbacks with Diogo Jota, Curtis Jones, and Darwin Nunez exiting the game at Brentford
Ahead of a critical stretch of games, Jurgen Klopp concedes that Liverpool "have problems" following their probable triple injury blow in Saturday's 4-1 victory at Brentford.

Ahead of Sunday's Carabao Cup final at Wembley against Chelsea, the Premier League leaders had Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota, and Darwin Nunez removed from action due to injuries at Brentford.

With nine injuries on their list, Liverpool now has games against Man City and Everton in the coming month in addition to their league match against Luton on Wednesday.

Jota's injury (knee) seems to be the main reason for concern, although Jones (ankle) needed crutches to exit Brentford's stadium. Nunez's removal during the interval was primarily a precautionary measure.

"We need to find out the total cost. After losing Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dominik Szobszlai, and Alisson to injuries in the previous week, Klopp stated, "We don't know yet."

"A knock landed above Curtis Jones' ankle. It was unclear to him exactly what it was. Curtis would have played on at all costs, so the fact that he was unable to does something.

"The worst-looking is Diogo Jota. Although I didn't see it again, I'd heard the photos [of the incident] weren't very good. We must check that out.

"Darwin Nunez we took off because he said he felt something very little."

"You can count the games coming up, so having more than one player per position would be helpful," Klopp continued. We are unaware of the extent of our troubles. We'll go for it as long as we have 11 players."

Although Klopp had the opportunity to win the first game, he did not let his focus go on Luton's visit up next.The complete list of injuries for Liverpool

"We cannot think about the final, we have to think about Luton," he stated. "After giving Luton our whole attention, we'll turn our attention to the conclusion. We'll see how we can play the next game after that.

Analysis: Liverpool is terrifying even with their injuries.
Zinny Boswell of Sky Sports:

Up to nine players might miss Liverpool's Carabao Cup final against Chelsea on Sunday. Soon following are matches versus Manchester City and Everton. Before the season's crucial stretch, Jurgen Klopp admits that his team is struggling on four fronts.

The Premier League leaders defeated Brentford 4-1 on Saturday, and there was absolutely no indication of such. When he came off the bench to score and provide an assist, Mohamed Salah stole the show. Another stand-in, Cody Gakpo, accomplished the same thing.

Few clubs could improve their play after losing Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota, their two main threats. Klopp is correct that it might be detrimental to lose depth at this crucial juncture, but he has a specially designed lineup of forwards to handle just that.

In the four games Salah missed due to injury, Liverpool averaged three goals per contest. Nunez is unlikely to be down for very long, so there's no reason the forwards can't perform well without Jota. With any player on the pitch, Liverpool can assure goals.
