'A goalscoring sensation': Jamie Carragher raves about Diogo Jota against Tottenham
Tottenham and Liverpool played out a mouthwatering clash this afternoon as both sides had to settle for a 2-2 draw in the end on Super Sunday.
Harry Kane finally returned to goal scoring ways for Tottenham, while for once, Mo Salah didn’t have much impact on the game for Liverpool. Instead, it was left to Diogo Jota and left-back Andrew Robertson – who was later sent off – to score the goals.
And after watching Jota score yet another fine goal for the Reds, former defender and now regular Sky Sports pundit, Jamie Carragher, labelled the Portuguese star a ‘sensation’.
“Jota is a goalscoring sensation. That header was out of this world. It was like Denis Law,” Carragher said live on Sky about Jota today.
The goal from the Liverpool star meant it’s now double figures in the Premier League for the former Wolves star. Since arriving from Molineux, he has been nothing short of brilliant.
For Liverpool on the whole, though, the dropped points at Spurs mean they now sit three behind City going into the Christmas. Pep Guardiola’s men, winning brilliantly again at Newcastle this afternoon.
TBR’s View: Jota Is Brilliant For Liverpool
Salah is often the man who gets lots of praise, but Diogo Jota is proving to be – as Carragher says – a sensation for the Reds.
He is scoring in big games, at the right moments, and looks every bit a world class player. For Jurgen Klopp, it must be brilliant to witness.
With Salah and Mane going away in January, the onus will be on Jota more than ever. He will be the man needed to score the goals and take the weight. And on current form, you wouldn’t bet against him producing the goods.
