Diogo Jota had a golden chance to give Liverpool the lead against his former side but the Portugal international missed from just five yards out.
The No. 20 simply had to pass the ball into the net to give Jurgen Klopp’s side the lead but instead blasted the ball at Conor Coady on the goal-line.
With the game just approaching the hour mark, the forward would’ve put the Reds in a great position to pick up all three points and leapfrog Chelsea at the top of the table.

Sometimes our strikers try TOO hard. Jota wanted to give himself a birthday present. instead he will have to settle for giving Divock a pint of Ribena!!!!
