“When you play as a striker there are chances of ups and downs. Where Jota is injured. But now things are falling into place.”
“Liverpool are returning form in every position. And it seems that their offensive game is starting to find the best form as well, ”said Bent.
The two goals Diogo Jota scored in Liverpool’s 6-1 win over Leeds.

“It’s part of football. You always try to believe in yourself. But obviously. When you score a goal Everything will be easier in the minds of the players, so we just have to take advantage of the moment. Because it is very difficult to achieve that goal.”
