Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara has hailed the current form of Diogo Jota.
The Portugal international now has 17 goals for the season, and 30 in 60 appearances overall since joining the club alongside Thiago in September 2020.
And Jota’s form is coming as no surprise to his teammates.
“We have an amazing squad and when we came new in the team it was very easy to get through and share the things they do on the pitch,” explained Thiago.
“And second, we have a great manager, so with this combination the new players that came last season and came this season, we have a really easy job to do.
“Diogo, we did not get surprised this season; we got a surprise last season how precise he was up front, how he was sharp, and this season we just wait for a good performance like this and it’s amazing.”
Thiago also echoed the widespread appreciation for Luis Diaz’s performance against Leicester as the January signing made his first start for Liverpool and shone under the lights.
“He is a kid with a great character, a winning mentality and he wants to be involved in this team as soon as he can. He did a great game tonight as well,” added the 30-year-old.
