Here Is Why Liverpool Should Use Jota More Often Than Firmino This Season

Portugese and former Wolves forward, Diogo Jota has been in good form for the Reds since joining them from Wolves last season. He has put in impressive performances whenever he is called upon to play in place of Brazilian striker, Roberto Firmino. He even scored in Liverpool's English Premier League match today.

Five of Diogo Jota's 12 Premier League goals for Liverpool have been headers, and it is good to note that none of his 16 strikes for Wolves in the competition came in this fashion when he was still with them. Also he has outscored Roberto Firmino in terms of goals scored this season.

Diogo Jota has now scored seven Premier League goals in 2021, 3 of them were headers, he has scored 3 goals with his right foot and he has scored 1 goal with his left foot. Also Jota plays a more attacking minded football than Firmino who always drops deep to receive the ball and feed them to the wingers. 

He is the man that should be starting fot Liverpool in place of Firmino.
