and he hopes to get back to top form as soon as possible.

Jota told

the club’s official website:

"A new boost in terms of confidence and, let's say like this, freshness because obviously they've been playing and fighting for the club.

"I feel like I could be like a winter transfer. So that's what I hope so they can rely on me and think I can help them in the future.

"I want to help the team and I know scoring goals is important, but at the moment we just need to all stay together because it's a hard moment – not just for me but for the team. We all need to push from the same side and hopefully on Sunday we can get back to winning ways.

"Obviously when you are out for so long it's not easy to get back on track 100 per cent straight away. But it was good, I played around 35 minutes [against Chelsea] and felt good. So I just need to keep training hard and with game time I think I'll be at my best again very soon."
