Sorry mate have to disagree. Jota doesn't go missing in big games or any other. He's consistent.
Last time mo was at Afcon (and sadio) Jota carried the load. He was exceptional.
He's been my favourite player for almost his entire time here. This season I think plenty are starting to see just how good he is and appreciate him. Not knocking anyone at all , but he was always under the radar I felt.
Such a clever player. And a great finisher. Has a knackered of getting the first or the decisive goal in games. Love him.
Can you recall a great game from him, individually, against top teams? I remember the goal against Tottenham and according to this website, he scored 7 against Arsenal. https://www.lfchistory.net/Players/Player/Profile/1373
I have always been a fan but I have to admit that till now, he has not been at the level of the very best players by performing against the best oppositions regularly. I remember seeing him fade out in the Champions League.
That's the reality. I will always recall that after covering superbly for Mane and Salah for AFCON 2021, Jota did not score for 13 games at the end of that season.
I love him, every time he's fit, he is in my Fantasy PL team. But till now, he had not reached the level of Mane/Firmino.
