Jota on goalscoring form, Portuguese influence and Spurs victory

Diogo Jota has revelled in Wolves’ attack in recent weeks, netting six goals and creating two assists in his last three appearances.

The forward was heavily involved once again at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last weekend, and even though he is currently in a purple patch when it comes to putting the ball in the back of the net, he believes the most important thing is continuing to help the team in games when he might not be as fruitful in front of goal.

On team style playing to his strengths

“I think the team’s and the players’ form varies throughout the season. Right now, I’m being able to help the team.

“Even though I wasn’t scoring in the other matches, I think I always helped the team defending and attacking and that’s what’s most important.

“We’re like a family inside the pitch and we want to keep going like this, seeking to get more wins.”

On Portuguese influence in the Premier League

“Even though it’s a small country, I think we work well and above all, we are very ambitious. All the people involved possess a great ambition, a desire to go far, not only the players, but also the managers, fitness coaches, doctors.

“I think everyone has that desire to go as far as possible and think that’s what’s happening and is going to continue to happen.”

On fighting back for the three points at Spurs        

“They started the game very well, playing at home, with a tactical system that locked us a bit in the first minutes, playing with high intensity and I think we tried to withstand that pressure.

“Even though we suffered the first goal, we responded well and had a very positive performance in the second half, both defensively and offensively, turned the score around.

“In the previous games we were not conceding in the Premier League, but we conceded, this happens in football, but the most important thing is to never give up and always go searching for the win, and I think the second-half was almost perfect and we fully deserved the win.”

On wining against league rivals

“Every game counts, no matter the opponents. Every game you could win three points and we always think game by game, so whoever we play against away, or if we are at home, we want to win and that’s what we want to keep doing.”

On Matt Doherty’s 250th league appearance for Wolves

“Every game is special; it doesn’t matter the number and he will want to keep adding to that number.”
