Since joining Liverpool from Wolves in September 2020, Diogo Jota has established himself as a key member of the Reds attack, reaching his half-century of goals during tonights game.

Indeed, if Jota had been fit and available for the recent games against Manchester United and Arsenal, it's likely that Liverpool would have earnt more than two draws.  That's because Jota has a knack for being in the right place at the right time.  Take tonights goal for example.  After playing the ball forward to Luis Diaz, Jota had the presence of mind to continue his run beyond Diaz, finding space on the left of the area.  Although Diaz initially shaped to shoot, when the ball broke to Jota, he calmly took the ball in his stride, sorted out his feet, and then placed a clever finish through the keeper's legs.

It's that type of clinical finish that Liverpool have been lacking in recent weeks.  And with Mohamad Salah heading off to the African Cup of Nations in January, Liverpool will need all their strikers to step up and score the goals that will keep Liverpool in the hunt for the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
