Jota was already in the fourth round of the championship when he had to leave, as confirmed by the twitter user @lyamooo_, his opponent in the aforementioned instance.
“I’m dying, I played with Diogo Jota in the fourth round but he let me win because of the game he has with Liverpool,” he tweeted, posting a screenshot of the messages he exchanged with the Portuguese international.
Quite curiously, the Portuguese left his mark with a double at the reds stadium.
The first goal against the saints was achieved 97 seconds after the appointment and he celebrated it sitting on the grass pretending to hold a console control in his hands.

There’s no way Jota just did that celebration
