Everyone has noticed what was on Diogo Jota's phone at Liverpool training and they think it's incredible

Fans have spotted what was on Diogo Jota's phone as the Liverpool star arrived for training - and it's sensational.

The Portugal forward recently returned from injury to score the Reds' second goal in their 2-0 win over Burnley on Boxing Day.

Manager Jurgen Klopp spoke about Jota's importance to the team - something that will come into focus even more next month when Mohamed Salah joins up with Egypt for the Africa Cup of Nations.

With nine goals to his name in all competitions this term, it is clear that Liverpool are a different side going forward when the 27-year-old is available, and his return is a major boost for the table-topping Reds.

Whilst he has been recovering from injury, Jota has indulged in his passion for esports, with the Portuguese star owning a competitive EA FC team based in Portugal.

But the forward is a much more than handy EA FC/FIFA player himself, and made headlines in 2020 when he went 30-0 on the FUT Champions mode during the first Covid-19 lockdown.

He then went 20-0 a couple of years later, and occasionally streams gameplay to his official Twitch account when he is off Liverpool duty.

It may come as no surprise, therefore, to learn what was seen on his phone as he walked into Liverpool training - and fans are loving it.

An image showed that the EA FC 24 Companion App - a mobile app which allows players to change their Ultimate Team side, complete SBCs, and open packs without having to go on a console - front and centre on his phone.

One fan wrote: "Bro's one of us."

A second said: "That's how I spend my lunch breaks too, to be fair."

Another added: "Daily login SBC can't be forgotten."

A fourth said: "He's so real."

Jota currently has two cards on EA FC 24 - his regular card and a boosted 'EA FC Pro Live' item.

The latter card can be unlocked through simply playing game, although, unlike the other Pro Live cards, Jota's is not eligible to receive an upgrade through the various esports tournaments that EA stage throughout the year.

Back to matters on the pitch, and Jota and Liverpool will kick off their 2024 schedule with a home Premier League clash against Newcastle on New Year's Day.

They will end 2023 on top of the Premier League table, unless Arsenal can win away at Fulham on Sunday to put themselves there instead.
