Liverpool ace Jota offers instant response to Man City FA Cup semifinal draw

Liverpool ace Diogo Jota shrugged off being drawn with Manchester City in the FA Cup semifinals.

Jota scored the only goal of the game at the City Ground to help the depleted Reds past in-form Championship side Nottingham Forest. His strike, moments after Philip Zinckernagel missed a golden chance for the hosts, was enough to see off Steve Cooper's side.

"I didn't know," Jota told ITV after being informed of the draw. "OK, it's another tough game.

"One more. There are still a lot of games before then."

Jota's winner was subject to a VAR check, thanks to a tight offside call. However, it was determined that Forest defender Tobias Figuereido played the 25-year-old on.

"Yeah, I thought it was tight," Jota said, before pointing to Zinckernagel's miss. "They had one big, big chance.

"They gave us a proper challenge and their fans were outstanding. But we are in semi-finals."
