Diogo Jota is proving at the start of the season that Liverpool were right to sign him. However, his great performance is a “problem” for a Jürgen Klopp that seems to have “overbooked” in his attack.
Although Liverpool have not started the 2020-21 campaign by sweeping aside their rivals as they did in 2019-20, the truth is that Jürgen Klopp’s team is gradually regaining its high level and good feeling.
Among the German’s players, somehwat surprisingly, the spotlights are all on newcomer Diogo Jota, who game after game shows that he is, by performance, one of the great signings of the summer. And that, according to ‘Daily Mirror’, was the third option of the club in the period of summer transfers.
The Portuguese is repaying the confidence his manager has put in him with colossal performances in which he has provided goals almost on demand. The former Wolverhampton Wanderers player has accumulatesd seven goals in ten games.
These are spectacular figures that, in the long term, could pose a problem for Klopp himself, who is beginning to see an overbooking of attacking players in the Anfield team.
Diogo Jota is a guest to the classic trio that throughout the last years has brought so much joy to Liverpool fans, Salah, Firmino, and Mané.
The Portuguese’s great form opens up a new avenue for the German coach, who will have to change his formation if he wants to accommodate the four players on the pitch, as it seems that none of these ‘fantastic four’ are willing to assume the role of substitute at major events.
