Diogo Jota Highlights Rising Belief in Liverpool Squad After Thrilling 3-2 Victory Over Nottingham Forest
Liverpool’s 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest in the Premier League was a testament to the growing belief and resilience within the squad, according to forward Diogo Jota. The Portugal international scored twice in the match, with Mohamed Salah netting the decisive 70th-minute winner to secure the three points for Jürgen Klopp’s side.
The Reds have now gone unbeaten in their last four top-flight outings, winning their last two matches, with Jota playing a pivotal role by scoring four times across those victories.
In an interview with the official LFC website, Jota discussed the challenges of attacking against a low block, the importance of set-pieces in the match, and the resilience shown by the team in responding to the equalisers scored by Neco Williams and Morgan Gibbs-White. He also spoke about the increased confidence in the dressing room after back-to-back wins and a hard-fought draw against Arsenal.
Acknowledging the difficulty of facing Forest’s physicality from set-pieces, Jota emphasised the need for improvement in this area, as it caused problems for Liverpool during the game. The Reds’ patience paid off, however, as they managed to secure victory against a Forest side fighting to avoid relegation.
Jota highlighted the importance of confidence for forwards, suggesting that scoring goals can lead to more goals. He also praised teammate Salah for moving up to joint-sixth in the club’s all-time top scorers list, calling his scoring record “incredible” and emphasizing his ability to find a way to score in every match.
Liverpool’s recent performances have given the team a boost in confidence as they continue to fight for the highest position in the Premier League table. With growing belief and resilience, Jürgen Klopp’s side will look to maintain their momentum in the coming matches.
