Luis Diaz gave Liverpool a draw against Crystal Palace in a game where things were not going well after Darwin Nunez was sent off. Klopp's side have two points from their opening two Premier League games, despite showing superiority on the pitch and trying to keep up the pace of play on the pitch.

With the departure of Sadio Mané, the Colombian's role is destined to be a starter on the right wing, where the Senegalese was stationed. His performances do not go unnoticed, which is why a Liverpool benchmark has highlighted his role, but, he asks for much more, to be at the level of the players of the elite of world football.

In addition, he seems to be the ideal partner for Mohamed Salah, who is the first choice in Jurgen Klopp's 11, and in the absence of Firmino and Nunez, it looks like both players will come forward in attack, this time with a young player like Fabio Carvalho, who, in the absence of both, is emerging as the natural replacement for Klopp.

Jamie Carragher spoke out

Jamie Carragher, champion with the Reds, spoke to BBC, where he praised the Colombian "Luis Diaz never stops running, he has so much skill, so much close control of the ball, so much composure, he does it really well," he said in an interview.

"We judge all great players by the numbers. Luis Diaz has looked like a great player overall, he's been sensational, but to be on a par with Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mané, he has to score goals" concluded the former player.
