Former Chelsea star Andy Townsend has paid tribute to Liverpool striker Diogo Jota after the Portugal international scored his 10th Premier League goal of the season.
The former Wolves man equalized for the Reds with a fine header in the first half and was unlucky to win his team’s penalty after he was fouled inside the box.
“How good is this guy, Diogo Jota? Countless times he did exactly what you just saw,” the 58-year-old said on Premier League Productions (via HITC).
“He makes himself in a situation, he passes people or falls behind them, but once he jumps up and heads into it, he is very smart and precise with it.
“Davinson Sanchez got some sleep, Dier was dragged out, then Ben Davies really couldn’t deal with it so they were all around a bit.
“But the cut ball from Andy Robertson is fantastic. Jota came down, headed bravely right in the corner.”
Jurgen Klopp’s side will be disappointed they drop points against Antonio Conte’s side, but after playing the final 15 minutes with ten men after Andy Robertson was sent off, it wasn’t a bad result. best in the world.
Jota is currently the league’s second-highest scorer, behind Mo Salah, after he headed home after Robertson’s brilliant assist.
Many supporters now place him above Bobby Firmino in dissection order and it’s hard to refute them.
Our No. 20 seems to impress every time he takes the field with his linking play, pressing and sharp long-range shooting ability.
The £45m we reportedly paid Wolves for the 25-year-old’s services is now looking like a real bargain – let’s just hope he can maintain the record scored his impressive goals while Mo Salah and Sadio Mane were absent from the Africa Cup of Nations in January.
