Matchday 13 of Premier League 2021-22 season kicked off on Saturday in some style with Arsenal registering a sensational 2-0 win over Newcastle at Emirates. The action then shifted to Anfield where Liverpool were up against Southampton and it was nothing short of any drama. Jurgen Klopp’s side got off to a dream start leaving everyone in shock.
With around 1 minute on the clock, Liverpool began a counter-attacking move with Diogo Jota finding himself in ample space. The striker was running towards the goal as he dribbled past everyone only to see his shot getting blocked by the defenders.
Jota opens the scoring for Liverpool
However, the move did not end as Sadio Mane and Andrew Robertson stitched some brilliant passes down the left flank before Robertson delivered a delicious cross across the goal. Diogo Jota positioned himself perfectly inside the box as he came up with an instinctive finish to put the ball into the back of the net.
The clock read only 97 seconds at that time, making it the fastest goal of the Premier League 2021-22 season. While the goal was worth the praise, it was Jota’s reaction which was even better as he produced a hilarious ‘Playing FIFA’ celebration, much to the delight of all home supporters.
