    Jurgen Klopp has hailed the ability of Diogo Jota make a instant impact at Liverpool. Whenever the German has made a signing, he has made a conscious effort to not rush their progress. It is a piece of adept management with a number of players thriving once they find their feet. However, the Portuguese forward has certainly hit the ground running after his move from Wolves scoring four goals in just nine appearances. His goal against West Ham on Saturday evening saw Jota become just the second Liverpool player to score in his first three league games at Anfield squalling the record set by fan favourite Luis Garcia in 2004. The consistent level of performance of Jota has led to discussion that he could replace Roberto Firmino in the starting lineup. The smart money being wagered at top sa gambling sites is on the Portuguese striker forcing his way into the side sooner rather than later. Speaking ahead of the Champions League clash with Atalanta, Klopp was not surprised with his progress (per the Echo). "We never hold players back at the beginning, it's just that they usually need time to adapt. I knew before that it would not take too long for him because of the way Wolves are playing. "They play a different system, but the intensity level for Wolves is always incredibly high. The only one player who has to defend less - and only slightly less - is Raul Jimenez, but the boys on the wings they had to run like crazy. "It was clear that physically he would be fine, technically we saw he is good, all the rest is then about finding your feet in a new environment." Jota may be young of age at 23, but he has plenty of experience on his footballing resume having played for a season at Porto before joining Wolves where he impressed many with his quality both in the Championship and then when the Midlands club won promotion. Much like lucky punters on a trip to online casino canada, Jota struck the jackpot this summer when Klopp came calling. Klopp says that has played into his advantage. "He is at the best age, 23, already experienced, already played a lot of Premier League football, he is a really good boy and is a really good signing. That's the situation. "The boys always make it easy for new players, and Diogo is very good. He is really open, his English is brilliant, and it made it easy for him to step into the team and the squad and the dressing room. Now he plays and has been involved.”
