Adrian Clarke looks at key tactical points in Matchweek 28.
The 24-year-old has looked increasingly sharp since recovering from a knee problem that kept him out of action for two-and-a-half months.
He almost scored from a superb instinctive volley against Fulham last weekend on his first Premier League start since November.
Against RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League, Jota created the opener and is likely to feature prominently at Molineux on Monday.
Jota has freshened up Liverpool's attack at a time when they desperately needed it.
Between them they have scored only six Premier League goals since the start of 2021, with Mane and Firmino claiming one apiece.
Jota's ability to play anywhere across the forward line provides Klopp with better tactical variety.
While Jota is not widely regarded as a prolific goalscorer, he has hit the ground running at Liverpool, scoring five times in six starts.
When you combine his Premier League and UEFA Champions League appearances, he has netted nine goals in 11 starts, a rate of one strike every 116.8 minutes.
Jota has added aerial prowess to his repertoire this term.
He did not score a header in the Premier League during his time at Wolves but has gone on to nod in twice so far against Sheffield United and Leicester.
Since arriving in English football he has found the net multiple times with either foot and has shown at Liverpool that he is capable of dribbling past defenders before finishing.

If Jota is able to impress against his former side, Liverpool stand a better chance of avoiding a third successive league loss.
