Liverpool star Diogo Jota reacts to Leicester win and explains how he fits into Reds squad


Liverpool new boy Diogo Jota has reflected on a ‘great’ 3-0 win for Jurgen Klopp‘s side over Leicester City, with the Portuguese international scoring the second goal with an excellent header. Either side of Jota’s goal, an own goal from Jonny Evans and a late header from Roberto Firmino saw the Reds earn all three points.

The victory sees Liverpool go joint on points with league leaders Tottenham Hotspur, who are ahead on goal difference.

Jota is hoping for more of the same as the campaign rolls on, with his magnificent form continuing.

Speaking to BBC Match of the Day, Jota said: “Playing in this team, world champions, means a lot, I just wish we can keep winning matches and I can be important as well, of course.

“We did a great job, offensively, creating chances, as well as defensively. In the end it was a great match.

“I like the overall performance – the result and clean sheet. We defended incredibly well.

“The front line didn’t play too often together but how they did today was not bad.”

He later added to BBC Match of the Day: “We scored three goals and didn’t concede one, we defended exceptionally well, controlled the game, there were a lot of good things, I can’t pick one that pleased me most – maybe the performance of James Milner at right back.

“He played an exceptional game, first there and then in midfield.
