Jurgen Klopp insists that Diogo Jota’s sensational hat-trick will not change Liverpool’s front three.

Klopp insists Diogo Jota’s sensational form has not given him a headache when it comes to breaking up his established front three.

Much of the success Klopp has had, winning the Champions League and the Premier League, has been down to the way Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have combined on the forward line.

However, Firmino was dropped for the 5-0 Champions League win against Atalanta in Bergamo to make way for the in-form Diogo Jota and the new signing seized his chance with a hat-trick.

And while some may see that as being a problem for the Brazil international, Klopp views it differently.

‘Good performances never give me a headache,’ he said.

‘For tonight the decision it was clear it made sense to use the good shape Diogo is in and because of the way Atalanta plays and defends the skillset of Diogo helps.’

The former Wolves player has scored six goals in the last 10 days and already has more goals for the club in 2020 (seven) than Firmino (five).
