Liverpool forward Diogo Jota reflects on the game against Wolves and called the night a special one as he scored the only goal to give the Reds the 3 points.
The forward also wish former teammate Rui Patrico quick recovery after the Wolves goalkeeper required lengthy treatment in the latter stages of the contest due to a head injury.
“I think life is more important. I hope it’s nothing too serious and I wish him, obviously, a speedy recovery.” Jota told media.
Jota also talked about his goal as he admits his former club defend very but they needed to take advantage of them when they were unbalance for them to score the goal.
“It’s a hard game, we knew that, and obviously they make it very hard for us during the entire game. I think we had a couple of chances in the first half. In the second half not so much, apart from the disallowed goal and Mo at the end. But of course we knew that it would be tough and we are very happy with the victory.
“Yeah, I think against these kind of teams, they defend well [so] we need to take advantage when they are unbalanced and they were at the moment. The quick triangulation from I think Sadio to Mo and back again and then me on the left, it was a good movement, a good goal and helped the team to reach a victory that we were looking for for a long time in the Premier League.
“I think we need to improve a lot, in this competition especially, and hopefully this could be a great start of a run until the end of the season.”
The Portuguese also stated how important closing the gap in the premier league top four is. “Massive. Like I said, we needed to win. That was the most important thing and to grab points because we have been struggling in the Premier League and we want to change that.”
