Last but not least is a Liverpool FC member who has been a constant and impressive mainstay on the club this season. Diogo Jota kicked off the scoring for the Reds today shortly after halftime. A fantastic header on a beautiful cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold on a set-piece put the club up 1-0 in the match, and the team never looked back.

Amidst a season full of plenty of ups and downs, Jota has been a player who has been defying negative play.

Diogo Jota keeps putting the ball in the back of the net in more ways than one.

When you think of the world’s best goal scores, such as teammate Mohamed Salah, you generally envision a beautiful shot with his world-renowned left boot. Of course, he can score in many ways, but it is more than apparent that his left foot is indeed legendary. However, for Diogo Jota, he is a player who uses both feet and his head to finish more exclusively.


A player of his skill set and versatility had truly helped LFC in many contests when the club was shorthanded. An existing fixture in the team’s starting XI has more than earned his place on the squad after arriving from Wolverhampton two seasons ago.

Above all, today’s performance showcased a vast range of players and talent that Red supporters should be more than excited about as the team advance’s to the 5th round of the FA Cup.
