'Magic': Jordan Henderson thinks one Liverpool player was outstanding today
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has waxed lyrical about “outstanding” Reds teammate Diogo Jota.
The Liverpool forward made it two goals from two Premier League games by opening the scoring against Burnley on Saturday.
Jota started up front against Norwich last week and got the first of Liverpool’s three goals.
Likewise, the Portugal international broke the deadlock against the Clarets at Anfield in Saturday’s early kickoff.
Jota met Kostas Tsimikas’ pinpoint cross to head past Nick Pope in the 18th minute of the match.
And Sadio Mane made sure of all three points midway through the second half with a well-taken effort.
After the 2-0 win, the Liverpool media team asked Henderson whether Jota has the magic touch at the moment.
“Yeah he has, he’s got the magic touch,” replied the Reds skipper.
“Around the box he’s lively and he manages to make the right runs.
“And when he gets in front of goal he normally scores.
“He has been outstanding since he has come back and hopefully he can continue.”
Jota now has 15 goals and one assist from 32 Liverpool appearances since his move from Wolves last year.
