Liverpool will love Owen’s signing of the season verdict and Wolves prediction

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen has named Diogo Jota as the signing of the season so far, after the forward's impressive start to life at Anfield.

Jota has netted nine goals in fifteen appearances in all competitions for the Reds since making a £41m move from Wolves over the summer.

Jurgen Klopp's side are due to take on Wolves on Sunday, with Jota in line to face his former side and Owen believes it is "written in the stars" that he will score.

Previewing the game for Bet Victor, Owen said: "Wolves picked up an impressive win at the Emirates last week.

"Up until then, they hadn’t quite hit the heights of last season. They’ve had one or two injuries and now they’ll be without Raul Jimenez after he endured a terrible head injury.

"I covered the Brighton game and without a few controversial decisions, Liverpool would have come away with all 3 points. Arguably, Diogo Jota has been the signing of the season, so far.

"He comes into this in red hot form and I think it could be written in the stars that he scores against his former club."

2,000 fans will be in attendance for the game at Anfield for the first time since Liverpool's Champions League defeat to Atletico Madrid on March 11.

Jota is looking forward to the opportunity of playing in front of Liverpool supporters for the first time since joining the club.

He told Sky Sports: "Football without fans is strange. Obviously when you play for a club like Liverpool that has one of the best atmospheres in the world, it just feels like something is missing.

"We have a lot of these conversations with the staff and even with the players [on] the things I am missing. Feeling the Anfield effect is the thing I'm looking forward [to] most."
