Journalist James Pearce believes that Diogo Jota is currently not in Liverpool's best XI.
The forward is having a very good season. Jota has found the back of the net 21 times and registered five assists in 45 appearances for the Reds.
"That’s how crazy the competition for places is.”
Anfield Watch Verdict
Pearce is probably correct. There is a reason why Salah, Mane and Diaz started ahead of Jota against Manchester United at Anfield last night. The same happened against Manchester City at Wembley Stadium last weekend.
But, things can turn around pretty quickly. An injury to another forward could potentially open the door for Jota.
It is good to have competition for places.
You can never possess too many good footballers in your squad. The standards at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp are so high at the moment.
With that being the case, the Reds have won five major trophies in the past three years under the guidance of the German.
Hopefully Liverpool can continue to press for trophies for many more years to come. There is nothing better than seeing your side win silverware.
It is something that does not happen everyday of the week. Also, the future does look bright for the Reds.
