Jota to Continue Finding Rhythm Against Wolves

The boss confirmed that he will continue to give minutes to the Portuguese attacker as he eases his way back into the team after a lengthy layoff.

Liverpool FC manager has suggested that Diogo Jota will have a part to play against Wolves tonight. At yesterday’s pre-game presser, manager Jürgen Klopp praised the Portuguese attacker. He also stressed the importance of getting back into rhythm, starting with Saturday’s game against Crystal Palace:

“Massive. Diogo is an exceptional player. He needs to get rhythm now, I think it helped him a lot [playing on Saturday].”

“Yes, he was tired after the game that’s clear, we have to see how he reacted and finally today we have to make these decisions. Who can start or who should start. But he will definitely be involved again if nothing happens.”

“[Jota is a] top class player, it’s great. He’s versatile, can play on the left wing, in the centre, on the right wing. It’s very helpful for this busy period we’re having now.”

His versatility across the front line and aerial ability will surely come in handy as the Reds attempt to save their season. Klopp also confirmed that both Darwin Nunez and Ibrahima Konaté trained normally, and could be in line to make their return to the lineup at Anfield tonight.
