A winner against Sheffield United was followed by the opener against Midtjylland in midweek before a late strike helped Liverpool defeat West Ham at the weekend.
Jota’s appearances had seen Jurgen Klopp switch to a 4-2-3-1 formation last week, and with his and Xherdan Shaqiri’s recent performances that could continue.
Shaqiri set up Jota’s winner against the Hammers and was instrumental in last week’s clash with the Danish champions as he seeks to reassert himself in Klopp’s plans.
His form could spell trouble for Takumi Minamino who may struggle to find a way back into the side, with Roberto Firmino given a chance to drop out of the front three from Saturday night's clash.
Nat Phillips was impressive against West Ham but is ineligible for the Champions League, so Rhys Williams could be in line for a full Champions League debut at centre-back with Joel Matip facing a late fitness test.
