ReactionDiogo Jota: We want to be better and we'll keep building
Liverpool will continue to build on their pre-season progress after a dominant 4-0 victory over Leicester City, said Diogo Jota.
The Reds’ first of two fixtures in Singapore saw Jürgen Klopp’s men defeat the Foxes emphatically on Sunday, with Darwin Nunez, Bobby Clark, Jota – all in the first half – and Ben Doak the goalscorers.

Jota and co have netted four times in each of their three warm-up games for 2023-24 so far, with this their maiden clean sheet of the summer.
Next up is a meeting with Bayern Munich back at the National Stadium on Wednesday, with further advancement the aim as the Premier League kick-off gets closer.
“We wanted to build in this pre-season: the way we create from the back, the way we press,” said Jota, who was named Player of the Match versus Leicester.
“I think we had good moments [and] not-so-good moments in that first half. I think the result in the end was clearly favourable for us, but we want to build on this physical side of the game and the way we can build as well.”
The Portugal international added: “Of course we want to do a lot better than we did last season. Last season was not great so we really want to improve on that.
“That’s what pre-season is all about: to build and try to get better for the start of the season.”
