Diogo Jota has scored Liverpool’s first goal of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign away to Norwich City.

Norwich will be hoping to take a better crack at life in the Premier League than they did last time. An opening day fixture against Liverpool was hardly an ideal way for them to start working on that.

While the EFL Championship champions were able to hold out for 26 minutes of the contest, Diogo Jota has now found the back of the net to assert Liverpool’s dominance in the fixture.

Jota enjoyed a superb start to his debut season with Liverpool, but never really looked the same after returning from a relatively serious knee injury which he suffered in December.

A goal on the first game of the season is the perfect way for the Portuguese forward to kick things off in his bid to nail down the centre-forward role ahead of fan-favourite Roberto Firmino.
