Diogo Jota had a fabulous debut season in front of goal for Liverpool and carried that form into 2021/22 by scoring in the opening two matches against Norwich City and Burnley.

Following the 3-0 victory over Leeds United at Elland Road, the Portuguese forward has a goal every 136 minutes for the Reds, just a shade behind Mohamed Salah’ s average of one every 133 (and if we ignore penalties then Jota has the edge).

Irrespective of that, he has equalled his expected assist total from his debut Liverpool campaign in the league and is also just three shy of his key pass tally.

And it will remain to be seen if this game from Jota proves to be a one-off borne out of the very specific man-to-man style of the opponent faced or if he will be a key creative cog within the team in the months ahead.

Per FBRef, Jota played a total of eight key passes (meaning they directly preceded shots).

As he is the long-term future of the Liverpool attack, Klopp will certainly be aiming to make sure it is the latter.

Yet James Milner, Neco Williams, Naby Keita and Curtis Jones were among the players who set up goal scoring opportunities more frequently than Jota did last season.
