UEFA Champions League: Liverpool’s Diogo Jota scores 10,000th goal in 2-0 win over Midtjylland

Diogo Jota scored the 10,000th objective in Liverpool’s 128-year history to lead the six-time European boss to a 2-0 win over FC Midtjylland in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Mohamed Salah changed over a punishment in stoppage time to finish the success for the English bosses, who have opened Group D with consecutive triumphs — having beaten Ajax 1-0 a week ago.

Jota’s noteworthy objective came in the 55th moment when he tapped in from short proximity following a very much worked move including Xherdan Shaqiri and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The negative for Liverpool at Anfield was a hamstring injury continued by Fabinho which constrained off the Brazil midfielder and developed the group’s initial season guarded burdens.

Fabinho has been filling in at focus back for Virgil van Dijk, who is likely out for a long time in the wake of harming cruciate knee tendons. With Joel Matip presently battling for wellness, Liverpool has only one fit senior community back in Joe Gomez.

“Exactly the last thing we needed,” Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp said. “He felt his hamstring so that’s not good.

“He said he could’ve played on but not sprinting, so that doesn’t help. We will see. We will have to do a scan and see, but clearly it’s not good.”

Midtjylland, the Danish boss playing its first away game in Europe’s world class rivalry, grieved Liverpool now and again and squandered two extraordinary possibilities — the two of which tumbled to a similar player.

Anders Dreyer was denied by goalkeeper Alisson in a one-on-one possibility in the initial minutes, at that point chipped a shot into the side-netting when through on objective in the 89th, when the score was 1-0.

Midtjylland opened the gathering with a 4-0 misfortune to Atalanta.

Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino — Liverpool’s typical assaulting triplet — all began the seat and it almost reverse discharges, with the group not having a shot on track in the main half.

“It was a tough night,” Klopp said. “It’s a bit like in a marriage, there are good and bad times.

“It’s not a bad time but it’s a tricky time — 100% we have to stick together and fight harder and that’s what the boys did tonight.”
