It could hardly have been much harder for Liverpool in the last league game before the international break. For coach Jürgen Klopp, the unexpected clap against Aston Villa was doubly bitter.

The Liverpool manager told the translator that he had a 'very erotic voice'.

It hasn’t taken Diogo Jota long to make his mark at Liverpool.

Two games at Anfield in the Premier League, two goals for the Portuguese forward, whose second-half header edged the champions past a spirited Sheffield United on Saturday evening.

Jurgen Klopp said the 23-year-old was perfect for the Reds when he signed from Wolves, and the early evidence is that he was spot on. He’s only been on Merseyside a month, but the new boy already looks very much at home.

“Good player, eh?” said Klopp when asked by Goal about Jota's impact since his £45million ($59m) move.

“He’s easy to like because he’s such a likeable person, and he’s a good player – that’s why we signed him!”

Van Dijk injury causes concern for frustrated Liverpool

  Van Dijk injury causes concern for frustrated Liverpool Virgil van Dijk has been a commanding — even transcendent — presence at the heart of Liverpool’s defence throughout the team’s rise to the top of English and European soccer in recent years. In a major concern for the Premier League champions, they might have to learn how to cope without their warrior at the back for quite some time. Early in what proved to be a painful Merseyside derby for Liverpool, Van Dijk was the subject of a reckless lunge by Jordan Pickford that saw the Everton goalkeeper clatter into the extended right leg of the Netherlands defender. Van Dijk roared in agony and, tellingly, stayed down. And that was when Jürgen Klopp knew it was serious.

Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher say they used to know within a couple of weeks if a new signing was going to be ‘a Liverpool player’. They’d see it in the way they trained, how they coped in the small-sided games at Melwood, how they carried themselves about the place. They’d know.

One imagines those two legends would have loved Jota; loved his energy, his positivity, his movement and his confidence. “A pressing monster,” assistant manager Pep Lijnders labelled him upon his arrival, but his talents stretch way beyond his defensive work.

“He is quick, he has the physicality, is strong, good in the air, good on the ground…” said Klopp on Saturday. “Those are the qualities we need.”

Jota’s goal against Sheffield United - the winner, as it turned out – will certainly have pleased Klopp and his coaches. It was a fine header, firm and true, and it means he has now scored in each of his first two home league games for the club.

Beware Brewster! Klopp and Liverpool hoping former prodigy doesn't sparkle on Anfield return

  Beware Brewster! Klopp and Liverpool hoping former prodigy doesn't sparkle on Anfield return The England under-21 striker left the Reds for Sheffield United earlier this month and will line up against his old club this weekendThe only surprise is he’ll be lining up against Liverpool rather than for them.

Jurgen Klopp set the Liverpool bounceback in motion within 48 hours of their first Premier League defeat of the season at Manchester City. 'We don't want to make too big a fuss of one game because it was by the smallest of margins but it wouldn't be too smart if I said everything was brilliant.

Also, to make it clear it was not Jurgen Klopp who invented this style of football. The big Dutch teams – Ernst Happel’s Feyenoord, Rinus Michels’ Ajax Amsterdam and the Dutch National team with Johan But, this is Jurgen Klopp ’ s replica of the Liverpool tactics this season, so let’s see how it functions.

Not even Mo Salah, the record-breaker extraordinaire, managed that. Sadio Mane, in fact, was the last man to do it, back in 2016.

If Jota can have anything like the same impact as those two, of course, he’ll have done well, but his arrival certainly makes Liverpool stronger. For so long, they have craved that extra attacking option and now they have it; someone with the physical and technical attributes as well as the versatility, to play with or instead of that famous, brilliant front three.

Depth may well be king in this most bizarre of seasons, and Jota, along with the fast-developing Takumi Minamino and the curiously-underused Xherdan Shaqiri, will surely provide that, whether from the start or off the bench.

It also means Klopp can tweak his system, if he so wishes. He went for a 4-2-3-1 against Sheffield United - a significant change, given how wedded he has become to the 4-3-3, and one which enabled him to field all four of his 'big' attackers at the same time.

“We wanted to try something different, to cause some problems,” he explained afterwards.

Jota, effective off the bench on the left at Ajax in midweek, moved to the right against the Blades, with Salah playing as the No.9 and Roberto Firmino dropping into a more withdrawn role behind.

Firmino, as it happened, grabbed Liverpool’s equaliser, his first goal of the season and only his third in his last 27 appearances. The Reds will hope for a few more from the Brazilian, now the duck is broken.

Jota’s first half was low-key, his main contribution a dangled leg on the edge of his own box which might, on another day, have led to a penalty for Sander Berge.

His best work came when he sidled in-field from the right, seeking to connect with Salah, Firmino and Co. His work rate was admirable – only Jordan Henderson won possession back more often, while only Firmino attempted more sprints – and when the chance came in front of goal, it was taken. What more could you ask for, as a manager?

“It was a super goal,” said a smiling Klopp, before adding a trademark note of caution.

“He was really involved in the game, which is good news. But, he can be much better as well, 100 per cent, which is really good news!”

For now, though, Liverpool will take what they are getting from their new signing.

He’s the most expensive attacker the club has ever bought, but the early signs are that Diogo Jota will do just fine at Anfield.
