'Reminds me of Suarez': Some Liverpool fans so proud to have 'incredible' player in their ranks

A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to praise Diogo Jota’s efforts in Thursday night’s big Premier League victory.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds headed to Manchester United and ran out 4-2 winners for a huge boost in their pursuit of Champions League qualification.

From a corner, Nat Phillips kept the ball alive after Mohamed Salah’s initial shot was blocked, sending a low ball towards goal which Jota flicked home from close range.

Admittedly, Jota did spurn two opportunities during the game, but his overall performance was solid, being a thorn in the opposition’s side and winning the ball back plenty of times.

Here’s what some Liverpool fans made of the Portuguese’s efforts at Old Trafford:

Roberto Firmino struck twice in quick succession for Liverpool either side of half time and, while Marcus Rashford gave the Red Devils hope of a result, Salah made it 4-2 late on.

Up next for Liverpool is Sunday’s Premier League trip to West Bromwich Albion.
