    What a dish he’s serving up this season.

    4 goals so far.

    A goal every 58 mins.

    We are talking about Jota stepping up when Afcon is on but is Minimino the secret weapon under our noses?

    Even with his weak physicality he seems to have a great knack for popping up in the box and scoring.

    Problem is, Takumi doesn't create chances for himself. He's very dependant on the players around him. So he's far from a like for like replacement for Mane or Salah.

    He’s more of a Jota lite than anything like Salah.

    As a stop gap I think he can do a job, we only need it for 4/5 games.

    If we have all of Jota, Taki, Origi & Bobby for that period then I think we'll be fine without any injuries at full back or midfield. We will create enough chances and these four know our system well enough. Get Elliot at AM behind three of that four two and it could be quite nice.

    I said something similar the last time someone made the same claim a few weeks ago. Salah is playing top opposition and mini scoring gainst D grade opposition (and a bummed arsenal side).

    He does seem to have a very decent eye for goal. In Jan I'd be tempted to play the same 4-3 base, but instead of 3 across the attack, play Minamino behind Jota and Firmino.

    I saw this stat today. It's amazing really. Commentators and studio guests alike cream themselves over KDB but Mo is almost his equal. I do realise though that Mo has likely played a number more games to reach that point.

    At the very most. It could be as low as 2-3 depending on when Mane/Mo are released and how their countries' progress ... or don't.

    With Origi being a goal a game player, and Taki being  a goal every 58 minutes player, it's a guaranteed 2.5 goals per game. We really can't go wrong in January.
