Jota: Underrated?

Genuine question really.

I like Jota, I think he suits us perfectly which helps him, but during preseason I have seen a lot of people cite Firmino's goal scoring record (got 9 goals and 7 assists in 33 league starts last season) but I don't see many taking Jota into account.

He has 14 goals in 31 games for us which is a good strike rate and although he is not the most creative for others has pace, movement, can play a few positions, moves between the lines well but most of all absolutely loves competing.

So, is he underrated do you feel and are the four we have good enough to get us near to 90 points this season? I feel yes but interested to see what others, especially oppo fans, think of Jota as he seems to go under the radar a bit.

Yeah I think Salah is going to have an absolute stormer this season, possibly before a move next summer unfortunately but less sure on that now Messi has gone to PSG.

But if those front four can get 50-60 goals between them in the league this season I think we'll be pretty hard to stop.

That's a high target but one that I think is achievable.

I don’t see Salah going anywhere tbh.

He'll only have a year left so I think it's up for debate.

Hope not obviously, I think he is getting better and better. I suspect he'll play well into his 30's at a high level too.

Jota and Salah start every game on current form. Other position should be between Bobby and Mane.

Feels like when you first bought Mane, he wasn’t exactly ripping it up at Southampton but turned out to be a great signing for the money.

He is a bit underrated and also I wish he had his own song. Felt a bit sheit for him after scoring the goal, when he was coming off the fans were singing Bobby's name.

Jota is a quality player. Liverpool’s form went downhill around the time he was injured last season. Think he’ll score 20+ if he stays fit

As for Liverpool getting 90 points, probably not

Streaky player is jota... On his days he's unplayable but when he's not on it nothing sticks and he'll go a bit without scoring.. That said probably my favourite wolves player of the fosun era

I'd be interested in seeing Jota......Salah.......Mane across the front and Firmino playing as an attacking midfielder, a position he has played regularly in the past.

We've seen it about three times maybe? Didn't we go like that in one of the games against City? Yeah I think it can work in certain games.
