Diogo Jota tipped to become Liverpool's most-dreaded by Arsenal legend


After hitting two pass Arsenal on Saturday - former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has spoken about how he thinks Diogo Jota will impact Liverpool

Jota who netted three times in two games for his country during last week’s World Cup qualifiers – made a scoring return to club football by coming off the bench to bag a brace in Liverpool’s 3-0 victory at Arsenal on Saturday night.

Jota’s double strike took his seasonal tally so far for the Reds to 12.

Jurgen Klopp’s fabled front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino has been one of the most-feared attacking trios in word football in recent seasons but rather than just being an impact substitute, going forward, 24-year-old Jota is being backed to be the spearhead of Liverpool's frontline.

Wright told Premier League Productions: “You look at the three guys up front, they're getting to that stage of their career, 29, 30s.

"You need that next person there. He's obviously there. He's ready to go.

"You look at Roberto Firmino, who is one of my favourites. Because of maybe his goal output, which people can have a dig at him for, but what he brings to the team is magnificent… but what Jota brings, apart from the workrate, the press, is the goals, the impact.

"You look at him now and think, yeah, he’s probably one of those that Liverpool have got who can come on. He can easily get 15 or 20 goals a season.

"We’re talking about not being there for so long and he’s in, scoring goals and you feel he’s just going to be a mainstay, without a shadow of a doubt."
