Liverpool saw off Arsenal in the FA Cup on Sunday evening and Jamie Carragher believes the Reds have got the best version of Luis Diaz back.
Diaz was involved in both goals as Liverpool won at The Emirates.
First, the Colombian jumped to try and head in Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross before it was turned into his own goal by Jakub Kiwior. Then, late in the day, Diaz finished emphatically to finish the tie off and send Liverpool cruising into the fourth round.
Diaz is now back among things at Liverpool after a few injury issues and a problem involving his Father.
And taking to social media after the game, the former Reds center-back has said that he thinks Diaz is now back to his very best in a Liverpool shirt.
With Mohamed Salah now absent for a few games, there is a real chance for some Liverpool players to step up to the mark and show how good they can be.
“At times tonight, £50m signing Diaz showed he can be a key player for the Reds and a leader.
“He is a massive threat with his direct running down the wing and even when he drifts more centrally, he is a problem for defenders.
“His finish at the death showed how ruthless he can be and right now, Liverpool need that finishing with Salah off and away with Egypt.”
Jurgen Klopp knows that this is a big season for his team. Having sold a number of players in the summer and reinvested, it was vital he got them going early.
The German has done that and the Reds are right in the mix to win this season on a number of fronts.
And in Luis Diaz, they have a player who, on his day, is as good as any wide forward in the Premier League.
