The 23-year-old Jota was signed by Wolves for £ 40million in mid-September and has had an immediate impact in Liverpool. He scored seven goals in eight Premier League and Champions League games, including a hat trick against Atalanta on Tuesday.

He adds another option to Liverpool’s traditional first-choice front-three, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, and while Klopp was keen to highlight the impact others had on the roster such as Divock Origi, Takumi Minamino and Xherdan Shaqiri, he said he was pleasantly surprised at the ease Jota found in his new club.
“I expect the new guys to take the time for their individual needs,” said Klopp at a press conference on Friday. “Sometimes that takes time and sometimes not that long. There is not one route for all players.
“We thought we could help him [Jota] Reach the level as if it could help us to get to the next level because of its quality.
“He is very young, experienced and has played on one of the hardest working teams [Wolves] under a demanding manager [Nuno Espirito Santo] So he knows that an offensive player has to do various tasks – not just creating and scoring, but also working hard. And that helps us. I’m very happy about it. ”
While Jota has made a remarkable start to the season, Firmino has only scored one goal in 10 games this season.
Jota started against Atalanta instead of Firmino in the middle of the week, which has left question marks over which front three Liverpool will go for this weekend. However, Klopp said the Brazilian international’s qualities speak for themselves.
“I don’t have to say a word about Bobby Firmino and how important he is to us,” said Klopp when asked what Firmino brings to Liverpool.
“In so many games he is the differentiator without scoring and also with scoring in other games. I would be embarrassed if I had to mention its qualities. ”
Klopp confirmed that Thiago will miss Sunday’s game at the Etihad Stadium due to injury, while Joel Matip could be there.
Klopp also downplayed any notion that the Manchester City game could play an important role in determining where the Premier League title goes this season, but said it is “one of the toughest games in the world” against Pep Guardiola’s team to compete.
Meanwhile, City boss Pep Guardiola said at a press conference that striker Sergio Aguero did not recover from a muscle injury in time to be in the game on Sunday.
