Diogo Jota fully announced his return from any injury concerns against Nottingham Forest, as he managed to score twice for the Reds but it appears that he owes some thanks to Virgil van Dijk.

Seeing as the man from Portugal managed to chest the ball, thigh it and then fire it home – not only suggests that our No.4 was right but that his teammate could also hear these cries of advice.

It was a well taken goal by the former Wolves striker but he may owe a lot of thanks to his mate, as he scored his fourth goal in six days.
