Chris Sutton has told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Monday Night Club that he believes Liverpool summer signing Diogo Jota is giving Jurgen Klopp a “headache” as he continues to impress – when such a headache was seemingly possible beforehand.
Jota, 23, has been in sensational form for Liverpool since his move from Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer. He has netted eight goals in his first 12 league and cup appearances for the Reds – only seven of which have been from the start.
He scored once again on Sunday evening, heading home a brilliant cross from Andy Robertson during Liverpool’s excellent 3-0 win over Leicester City. A Jonny Evans own goal and a third from Roberto Firmino saw Liverpool cruise to three points.
Sutton claimed that before the signing of Jota, nobody looked as if they could break up the front three of Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane. Now, Jota has been able to do that – giving Klopp a headache when it comes to selecting his attack.
