Diogo Jota can become the fastest player in Liverpool history to score five Champions League goals for the club when Atalanta pay a visit to Anfield on Wednesday.

Diogo Jota could break yet another Liverpool record when the Reds welcome Atalanta to Anfield for Wednesday's Champions League showdown.

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers man has made a phenomenal start to life with the Premier League champions and scored his side's second goal in a 3-0 victory over Leicester City at the weekend.

Jota's header in that game saw him become the first ever Liverpool player to find the back of the net in his first four top-flight appearances at home, and Jota will look to become a record-breaker once again in the Champions League later this week.

Should the 23-year-old register another goal in Europe on Wednesday, he will have scored five Champions League goals for Liverpool faster than any other player in the club's history.

Having already scored a hat-trick against Atalanta when Liverpool paid a visit to Bergamo, the Portugal international should certainly be confident of etching his name into another page of the Reds' history books in gameweek four.

Jota's first Champions League goal for the Reds came in their 2-0 victory over FC Midtjylland last month, and Jurgen Klopp's men will confirm their spot in the knockout stages with a fourth straight win in Europe this week.
