Liverpool’s pre-season is well underway and the lads appear to be getting into a rhythm. Unusually, Liverpool play the same team twice today. A familiar face impressed in the first fixture. Liverpool fans were wowed by Diogo Jota v Bologna.
Diogo Jota season
Last term was a frustrating one for Diogo Jota.
The Portugal star joined the Reds from Wolves near the end of the window in a £41m deal.
He made a near instant impact, scoring important goals against Arsenal and West Ham.
However, a nasty injury picked up just before he was due to be subbed in our final Champions League group game kept him sidelined from December until March. He missed a staggering 19 games.
Despite his spells out he managed nine goals in 19 appearances in league and he even netted a Champions League hat-trick.
Diogo Jota v Bologna
Today Liverpool take on Bologna twice.
Liverpool fans were delighted to see Diogo Jota star in the first game against Bologna.
The Portugal ace started as a centre forward and he was deployed to devstating effect.
Early on in the game he hounded an opposition player to nick the ball back in the attacking third.
He then dropped a shoulder to open up a shooting angle before finishing calmly past a helpless keeper.
Twitter reacts to Jota performance
It’s safe to say fans are excited to have the Portugal star back in scoring form.
He could be pivotal for us if he can stay fit this season.
