Jamie Carragher urges to bench one Liverpool star for Diogo Jota

Jamie Carragher wants Klopp to drop Firminho and play Jota instead.

Diogo Jota who made an outstanding start to his Liverpool career has been out with a knee injury and is now pushing for a place in the squad.

Roberto Firminho saw his form drastically dip as he scored just one goal in 16 appearances since Boxing Day.

Former Reds player Jamie Carragher believes Klopp should play Jota instead of the Brazilian striker.

‘Yes, I mean I have been calling for [Jota to start over Firmino] that a while,’ Carragher told CBS Sports.

‘I think Firmino has been fortunate that Jota has been out for so long because I think he was on the verge of breaking that front three up, really.

‘It’s just interesting that he went central. I think, at the weekend, it was Salah who went through the middle and Jota was in a wide position.

‘But Jota is a bigger goal threat, right at this moment. We know Firmino brings other things.

‘But to just think that Liverpool need to get as many goalscorers as possible on the pitch because the midfield players don’t score, the full-backs create and they have lost Van Dijk. Jota needs to be on that pitch.’
