      We can't rush him because we need him back to full firing power.

      Hope it is not a serious injury.

      Great news!!  Excellent player, and in my opinion he's underappreciated by many fans.  I think Jota is going to be our top scorer this season -- just a feeling. 

      YNWA Diogo!!

      One of his biggest fans mate. Go back in the archives and you see I’ve stated first name on the team sheet along with VVD. I like him a lot. Underrated by many but not by me.

      Another one signed up long term ensuring he spends the prime of his career in a red shirt. Good work the club.

      Love Jota's attitude -- always incredibly professional and focused; works as hard as anyone. Cant wait to see him back fit and firing especially with the competition for places now!

      Big game goals last season, ones that stand out were City and Spurs away when the pressure was really on.

      I think he really is a fabulous player and so glad we have him.

      Where will he play this season? Mostly on left or in centre. I think his flexibility could be a problem for him. The other forwards have a clearly defined position they prefer. Jota's ability to play different positions could mean he's filling in for others this season, similar to Mane last season.

      This is not a criticism of him, it's a positive. I think he's a very valuable player for us.

      He has been more than good since his arrival except for the end of last season: 13 games without scoring in a title-chasing team is worrying, but he'll improve. Anyway he's more than good enough for a sport in the starting 11. I just hope he gets his fair shares of minutes on the pitch. For me, although Diaz has been excellent, Jota has done more in terms of goals to deserve a starting spot.

      I can see lots of rotation between Jota, Nunez, Bobby, Diaz & Carvahlo. elliott will be Salahs sub.

      Fair play, his flexibility however can only be a positive aspect for the team and indeed Jota himself, in time to come he will no doubt slot in to a more defined role.

      I think Jota is not appreciated enough given his stats. His stats are spectacular and makes him already one of the best forwards in the league but still most of us see Nunez and Diaz starting instead of him. I understand, they're new but they still need to show that they are better than Jota in terms of impact yet.

      Yes, he's loved by fans but I don't understand how often he's forgotten in favour of the new boys.

      Only Favoured because Jota is injured.

      I hope so but when you read articles, most of them see Diaz, Nunez and Salah being our front 3 in the starting X1.

      Dont read crap journos. ;D

      I actually think its Salah, Bobby & Diaz who will start most games just now, Nunez sub for Bobby. Then as we go into September more games happen, they will all rotate depending on tactics and fitness. Apart from Salah who ill play most games.

      The tough part for Jota is missing a majority of preseason he will really be behind fitness wise compared to the first team. Hoping it doesn't take too long because once September hits the games start coming in thick and fast.

      As far as his prospects of locking down a regular starting spot he will be given lots of playing time with the amount of rotation needed to maneuver through congested fixture list.  If he finds his scoring boots like he had for the first 2/3rds last season his versatility will be benefit him as give Klopp more chance to slot him in the starting lineup.

      Go read through the posts about our best 11 -- a vast majority have Diaz, Nunez, and Mo as the best forward line, which I find insulting to Jota.  Diaz has shown promise, and Nunez looks a talent, but Jota has proven that he can bang in the goals regularly when he plays. 

      I also recall many posters on here last season talking about how he doesn't get involved enough in the buildup and pressing, and he only scores goals.  I'll gladly take a player that goes missing for 80 minutes then pops up with 2 goals in 10 minutes.  It's a rare talent. 

      I don't think he gets the respect he deserves from our own fans.  You can disagree -- you are entitled to your opinion, and I'll respect that :)
