The Portugal international missed almost three months due to a knee injury, and the Reds’ season fell apart without the £45-million man. The 24-year-old had made a flying start to life on Merseyside, following his £45 million ($63m) move from Wolves in September.
Jota returned from injury in Liverpool’s win over RB Leipzig on Wednesday. The Spaniard is expected to start against his former club Wolves on Monday. Liverpool were title favorites at Christmas, but they are nowhere now. Even a Europa League spot could be beyond them at this stage.
Jota has been out for three months with a knee injury. The Spaniard started against Midtjylland and played 87 minutes. He has three more goals than Roberto Firmino, and only three fewer than Mane. Klopp says Jota can play in all three positions up front.
