Watch: Diogo Jota Pulls Off Miss Of The Season Against Wolves

Liverpool came away 1-0 winners against Wolves thanks to the handy work of their reliable late hero Divock Origi. Diogo Jota on the other hand won't remember it as fondly.

With seventeen shots on goal - the Reds were unlucky not to have scored sooner. Sadio Mané and Thiago came close as the game developed.

While the headlines in the aftermath might all be about Origi's ability to score late winners - Jota missed an absolute sitter earlier in the second half.

Jota's Forgettable Shot

The Portuguese international found himself through on goal as Wolves keeper José Sá came way outside his box to meet him but missed his man.

Jota ran towards the opposition net with Conor Coady and Max Kilman positioned in the dead centre of the goal. He only had to place it in either corner.

At the edge of the six-yard box - Jota put his head down and fired it straight at the two Wolves defenders. An awful, awful miss. He won't want to see that anytime soon.

It's fairly uncharacteristic for someone as clinical as Jota. From what we've seen from him so far in the Premier League - he's a potent finisher.

Nonetheless, it was a bit of an off-game for the Liverpool forward. He was on the receiving end of some boos from the crowd as the game went on.

Liverpool boast three of the top four goal scorers in the Premier League this season. Diogo Jota is third on the list with eight goals from fourteen matches.

He's cemented himself as a starter under Jurgen Klopp this season in place of Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian has four goals from eight games.

It's been a leapfrog Premier League table throughout Saturday as Chelsea started on top - but a defeat to West Ham allowed Liverpool to overtake them.

Manchester City are now ahead by a point following a win over Watford. Only two points separate them and Chelsea in third.
