Liverpool duo Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino remain doubts for Carabao Cup final

Liverpool duo Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino remain doubts for Carabao Cup final

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits he does not yet know whether forwards Diogo Jota or Roberto Firmino will be fit for Sunday’s Carabao Cup final.

The pair both missed the weekend win over Norwich, Jota with an ankle problem and Firmino a thigh muscle issue, and will sit out the midweek visit of Leeds.
