, and his recovery period has been extended, and the club has confirmed that he needs a few weeks more before he can return to action.

The Reds’ doctor has talked about the 20-year-old’s injury, saying that he is struggling with a serious injury, but he will return to action as soon as he recovers from it.

Club doctor Jim Moxon told the club's official website:

“It’s a freak injury and very unlucky, but the important thing to emphasize is there is no lasting damage and his vision won’t be impacted beyond the recovery period.

“However, the nature of the issue means caution is important; we need to allow it time to heal and we can’t rush it, therefore it won’t be a speedy return.

“It needs to mend before we are able to reintroduce Curtis to full training, but there are things he can do in the meantime to maintain fitness.

“We can’t put a specific timescale on a return beyond it will be a number of weeks from now as it heals naturally, so it’s not one we will risk and patience is a virtue with this specific recovery.”

The Reds’ boss had talked about Jones’ injury earlier, insisting that he was so unlucky to pick such a strange injury.

Speaking about Jones' injury earlier in November, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said:

"He [Curtis] was very unlucky in training - he got a finger that scratched the eye.

"I had a lot of injuries to players in my career, that was not involved. He is on the way back but we have to see how long exactly."
