A number of Liverpool fans have been reacting to Diogo Jota’s brace for Portugal, as the Anfield star’s stock continues to rise.
The 24-year-old joined the Reds from Wolves last summer and immediately hit the ground running, scoring a debut Anfield goal against Arsenal, as well as bagging the winning goals at home to Sheffield United and West Ham in October.
The forward was proving to be an excellent addition to Liverpool’s attack, but unfortunately a knee injury picked up in December kept him out for several months.
Jota returned recently in a huge boost for Jurgen Klopp and he netted the only goal away to former club Wolves, meaning he now has 10 goals in 21 appearances for the Reds.
The Liverpool star has also become a key man for Portugal and he proved that on Saturday evening, scoring both of his country’s goals in their 2-2 draw with Serbia.
Jota powered home two headers to showcase his ruthlessness in the final third, taking his international tally to five goals in just nine caps.

These Liverpool fans took to Twitter to heap praise on the Reds hero after his “unreal” performance in the World Cup qualifiers.
“Five goals in his first nine games for Portugal. Some player”
“Diogoal at it again I see“
“Diogo Jota rediscovering his goalscoring form just in time for the business end of the Champions League. Is rightttttt“
“Diogo Jota is unreal btw“
“Jota is set to be a great for us. Has everything to his game. No doubt he can bag like 25 next season if he stays fit. Incredible player”
