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:

Trent Gomez Fabinho Robertson
Mane Minamino Jota
Salah would be unreal tomorrow

Yeah I agree I would like to see Jota start just to give Bobby a rest I love Bobby and think he is totally underappreciated for what he does for the team but I feel he needs to recharge his batteries 🙂

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.
