With all the problems the Reds faced in 2020-21, it got somewhat lost how well their new striker did around injury problems. He hit the ground running last week as well.
Liverpool immediately looked like their old selves last weekend and a first full house back at Anfield since the pandemic will surely only increase that perception. Burnley may have won here during the darkest days, but normal service will surely be restored on Saturday.
The battle in the First Goalscorer market presents some value in the form of Dioga Jota - a best price 9/2 with PaddyPower. It’s easy to forget just how lively he looked in his debut campaign before injury struck.
The former Wolves man has struck 10 in his first 20 appearances, and crucially got the nod over Firmino against Norwich. Yet the Brazilian finds himself a similar price, with a much worse goal return.
Jota is recording goal numbers more along the Salah lines, who is a best price 12/5 to break the deadlock. The value is clear.
