‘Needs to’, ‘please’: Some Liverpool fans want 23-year-old to get his second Reds PL start this weekend

A number of Liverpool fans are hoping that Diogo Jota gets in the starting XI this weekend, potentially as a replacement for Roberto Firmino.

The Reds summer signing was on the bench for Wednesday’s Champions League win over Ajax but did well after coming on for Sadio Mane on the hour.

Jota regularly threatened on the break and could well have had a goal to show for his efforts.

In comparison, Firmino found himself on the periphery far too often, with little end product to show for his running and workrate.

With Liverpool hosting Sheffield United at Anfield on Saturday night, some Reds fans would like Jurgen Klopp to freshen up the attack.

Here are some of the comments on social media:

 

Jota joined Liverpool in mid-September, BBC Sport reporting the 23-year-old had penned a five-year deal following his £41million switch from Wolves.

The Portugal international has made six appearances in all competition for the Reds, with a start apiece in the Premier League and in the League Cup.
