Diogo Jota’s “Special” Late Winner Inspired by Andy Robertson


Diogo Jota sent Anfield into raptures when he scored an injury-time winner to beat Tottenham 4-3. After the match, he revealed the key moment that led to the goal. In the midst of chaos, Jota capped a thrilling encounter at Anfield with a composed finish in front of the Kop to earn Liverpool three points in the Premier League. The goal takes Jota’s tally to five in his last four matches, after previously going over a year without scoring.

Jurgen Klopp has hinted a few times in recent weeks that Jota is keeping Darwin Nunez out of the team due to his eagerness to press and win the ball back. This was put to good use when Lucas Moura made a stray back pass, allowing Jota to take the ball in his stride and finish with his supposed weaker left foot, across Fraser Forster and into the bottom corner. After the match, Jota said the “key moment” that allowed him to score was when he saw Lucas “could have passed the ball back.” He went on to explain that he had been encouraged by teammate Andy Robertson to “go on and believe”, and that he was able to intercept the pass and score the winner.

Jota downplayed the finish, saying that it didn’t “require too much thinking” and that you “just make sure you control it right and you hit the target.” After signing from Wolves in the summer of 2020, the forward spent most of his first season playing behind closed doors. After finally scoring a late winner in front of a full Anfield, Jota said it was a feeling he would remember forever. He went on to say that scoring a last-minute winner always feels great, but even more so in front of the Kop.
