In the 53rd minute of the Champions League tie against Atalanta, Diogo Jota secured his first hat-trick since joining Liverpool this summer.
The Reds hit the Italian side on the break once again after defending a chance, Sadio Mane looked up on the left-wing before playing in Jota with an inch-perfect outside of the foot pass.
Jota touched the ball away from the on-rushing Atalanta keeper, before slotting the ball into the back of the empty net to mark an incredible feat.
Mane’s assist was so sumptuous that club captain Jordan Henderson can be heard screaming ‘what a pass, what a pass!’ before Jota tucked the ball away.
