Diogo Jota and Alexis Mac Allister already seem to be forming quite a combination at Liverpool, and the Portuguese forward absolutely loves it.
The summer signing grabbed an assist for the 26-year-old’s second goal in the Reds’ 4-2 win over Karlsruher in their first pre-season friendly on Wednesday, and the two were earlier involved in a fantastic piece of link-up play to which Cody Gakpo also contributed.
The ex-Wolves and former Brighton players very quickly appear to be on the same wavelength in Jurgen Klopp’s team, and the number 20 evidently loves having the World Cup winner as a teammate.
When asked after yesterday’s game about the link-up between him and Mac Allister, Jota replied: “I really like this kind of player. They can see the passes; you just need to make the run and they will see it. That’s amazing.
“I start to see I can link up very well with him and hopefully we can take this into the season.”
The 26-year-old’s facial reaction when asked about the Argentine clearly showed that he loves having him as a new teammate, and the prospect of the duo linking up to devastating effect throughout the season has us hugely excited!
