It may have taken Diogo Jota until December to score his first Premier League goal but since then he’s become one of the most dangerous threats in the division.
That was evident against Manchester United on Tuesday evening as the forward was again in top form, scoring the club’s equaliser as they won 2-1. The win was symbolic of the way they’ve played this term, securing yet another victory over a top-six side.
There were some key performers against United but Jota stood out with fans flocking to Twitter to praise the star.
One fan noted his transformation since the back end of last year whilst another claimed he’d finally arrived after taking a while to adapt.
Supporters were left salivating from the mouth over the 22-year-old, calling him a legend and describing his performance as immense.
Jota recently received his first call up to the Portuguese national team, just reward for his exceptional displays over recent months.
Raul Jimenez is turning it on for Wolves and Mexico right now! He definitely deserves the song in the video below…
In 30 matches in all competitions this season he has scored eight goals and registered four assists.
Wolves fans will now be hoping he can replicate his performance as they take on Watford at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-finals on Sunday.
Here’s what the Molineux faithful have been saying about Jota on Twitter…
Some transformation in his performances since Hallowe’en. I’ll be the first to admit I doubted him in those first few months. Not any more! ??
