Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp's touchline chat with Pep Lijnders about Diogo Jota emerges

Diogo Jota may have only been at Liverpool for one month but the Portuguese international is already part of the furniture at Anfield. The attacker is adored by Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff, who feel he has settled really well on Merseyside.

Jota netted off the bench against Arsenal on his Liverpool Premier League debut and the goal has been backed up with several impressive cameos.

The latest of which came against the Blades last weekend as Jota was handed a starting berth alongside Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Klopp now looks prepared to change the formation to accommodate the former Wolves man, who has also made a statement on the training pitch at Melwood.

The 23-year-old headed in the eventual winner last Saturday, planting the ball into the top corner past Aaron Ramsdale following Mane’s cross.

Jota may just prove to be Liverpool’s wildcard in the title race, following Virgil van Dijk’s anterior cruciate knee ligament injury.

Supporters were left disappointed when the Reds were forced to withdraw their interest in Timo Werner but that frustration has now been forgotten thanks to Jota.

Liverpool’s current front three are being kept on their toes and Klopp has already shown he is not afraid to tweak the team’s shape to accommodate the in-form forward.

He could be in line for a start in tonight’s Champions League clash with FC Midtjylland as he looks to keep his place in the starting XI.
