BERGAMO, Nov 4 Striker Diogo Jota netted his first hat-trick for Liverpool as they thrash Atalanta 5-0 today in a blistering performance to go five points clear at top of Champions League Group D after three straight wins. Jota's treble continues his scintillating start to his Liverpool career while Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane also get on the scoresheet in a superb display from Juergen Klopp's Premier League Champions. Jota wasted early chance before giving his side the lead on 16 minute, latching on to a pass from Trent Alexander-Arnold and holding off Jose Luis Palomino before delicately flicking the ball past Marco Sportiello. The Portugal forward, who arrived from Wolverhampton Wanderers for a reported fee of £41 million in September, made it 2-0 in 33 minute, controlling a raking pass from Joe Gomez with his left foot before firing home with his right. With the home side reeling, Salah scored a super solo goal two minutes into the second half, collecting a clearance from Andy Robertson and running from the halfway line before curling the ball in at the far post. Minutes later it was Mane's turn to make it 4-0 with a sublime chip finish before Jota completed his hat-trick with another coolly-take effort in 55 for his seventh goal in his first 10 appearances for Liverpool. Atalanta's best chances on night fell to Duvan Zapata, who clipped the underside of the crossbar with a superb curling strike. He twice tested Liverpool keeper Alisson with stinging shots and also had a stoppage-time effort ruled out for offside. Salah almost scored the sixth for Liverpool on 83 minute. Once again he ran half the length of the pitch after the Atalanta corner was clear, but this time his shot was steered out for corner by Sportiello. Victory put Liverpool top of Group with nine points after three games, having concede no goals. Ajax Amsterdam are second on four points and ahead of Atalanta on goal difference after a 2-1 win away to Danish side FC Midtjylland.

Portugal forward Jota's clinical treble continued the scintillating start to his Liverpool career, while Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane also get on the scoresheet in a superb display from Juergen Klopp's Premier League Champions. It was a performance we needed tonight, just because the opponent is really strong and can cause you massive problems, and my boys play incredible game. Front line defending and attacking, outstanding, Klopp told BT Sport. Victory put Liverpool, who won the Champions League in 2005 and 2019, top of Group with nine points from three games.
