Tue 24 November 2020 | 10:14

Diogo Jota has been an exceptional player for Liverpool so far having 8 goals in 12 matches.

Diogo Jota

was one of

Liverpool

’s summer signings. He was expected to be a bench player but he performed much better than expected. The Portuguese forward who came to

Liverpool

from

Wolverhampton

has scored 8 goals in 12 matches so far.

Salah

was one of the absent players in the match against

Leicester City

. He was tested positive for Covid-19 while with Egypt international team.

Aldridge

says that Jota is having a similar impact in Liverpool as the Egyptian star.

Aldridge

has told the 

Liverpool

Echo of those: “What do you do when

Salah

comes back in?

“It’s going to be tough but it’s a great position for the manager to be in with the four attacking players.

“It was great for 

Roberto Firmino

 to score at Anfield because it seemed like the world was against him. Out of what was the established front three, his place had to be the most at risk, you have to say that.

“They’ll all be fighting for their place now and it’s a nice headache for the manager to have but now you simply can’t keep Jota out of the team.

“He’s had such a big impact, it’s similar to Salah when he first came to the club.

“He’s hungry, he’s got the desire.

Jota

knows how good the front three are and he wants to be better than them.

“Jota’s doing things he wasn’t doing before at Wolves. He’s at a bigger club, he’s in the limelight more and his game for Portugal is getting better.

“He’s hitting all the right notes.”
