Commenting upon defeating Manchester United by a humiliating 5-0 outcome at Old Trafford, including international teammate of his Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes, Liverpool forward Diogo Jota stated:

It’s an epochal victory for us, of course. But, as players, we can’t think over our heads. I think it’s important that we keep our feet on the floor. It’s just [another] three points, there is a long way to go. 

It’s hard to dream [about such a win], which is a good thing, to be honest. We always expect a tight game, at least in terms of the result, but I think we were outstanding, especially until the 2-0. Throughout the first 15 minutes we were almost perfect. After that, we conceded a little bit counter-attacks and started losing the ball, but in the end it’s an history-making result, and one for the fans to remember for a while.

Sometimes things just happen naturally. I think we were of course on our toes, everyone was searching for the space and I think in the end with the two goals coming soon, that helps as well. We were very dangerous and we did a fantastic game today.

Mo Salah was massive! I think of course the way the team is playing at the moment helps a finisher like he is. It is one of those times when every time he touches the ball it seems to end in the back of the net! That is unbelievable for us and I hope that can continue for a while.

Yeah, I think a clean sheet is always important because if you do that it allows for you just to score one goal and win the game. That’s what we need to fight for because with the quality that we have up front, if we keep that clean sheet [then] I’m pretty sure we will win the game".
