Diogo Jota says 'It will be Tough Tomorrow' Ahead of Porto Clash

Diogo Jota was on media duty today ahead of Liverpool's visit to the Estádio do Dragão and he doesn't think it will be as easy and the previous games.

Since signing for Liverpool, Diogo Jota has been a revelation at Anfield. He has offered the 'front three' some much needed competition and has also integrated himself really well within the squad.

Speaking ahead of the Porto game on Tuesday, Jota has explained what has helped him improve since signing for Liverpool.

"I joined 12 months ago - playing for this amazing club with such surroundings - so much support all over the world - it's special. We want to win matches and competitions, so we will go for everything.

"I always try to do my best to help my team. I think playing under Jurgen and with this team has helped me as well. We play a lot of attacking football. I am always around the goal.

"I knew Mo, Sadio and Roberto were one of the best trios in the world. I just wanted to come and give my best. Then it is the manager who decides the team. These players help you because we all want to win - you can only win if you have good players."

Jota also spoke about the Anfield faithful and what his experience was like during the AC Milan game.

"I had the opportunity to play at Anfield with a full stadium in the UCL. It was massive - although Milan were winning, we did a fantastic first half and they really pushed us. The fans are really useful for our style of play." 

Diogo Jota will be returning to his old club tomorrow. The winger previously spent a season on loan at the Estádio do Dragão before moving to Wolves. Jota had this to say about his former club.

"I follow Porto and I know the previous results against were not good for them - it didn't show the real difference between the teams. At Dragao, it's never easy for away teams.

"So if we let ourselves go there and think about those [previous] results, we will struggle.

"They will be difficult. Sometimes we can't impose our gameplan, sometimes we can. It will be tough tomorrow."

Hopefully Jota can have another great game tomorrow and show Porto what they're missing since he left them.
