Despite the fact that Mohamed Salah is the main man up front, and Roberto Firmino has a place in the starting line-up, Diaz has become the third option to complement the team following the departure of Sadio Mane, despite the arrival of Darwin Nunez in this transfer window.

The Colombian, a first-choice starter for his country, will step out at the King Power Stadium to face Pep Guardiola's Erling Halaand, who has yet to show his full potential in pre-season with the Manchester side despite a promising start to the season.

Luis Diaz has played 13 games in the Premier League, scored 4 goals and has an average of 385 good passes, he has not had any cards, which puts him as a compliant player, as well as 54 recovered balls. Luis Diaz will be one of Klopp's regulars, after what was the whole of pre-season. This will be the Colombian's fourth final since his arrival at Liverpool. Two wins and one loss are the record of the Colombian.

Now, in the history, only one Colombian has managed to win the duel for the Community Shield, being David Ospina, the holder of this award. In the 2017 edition, he was present in that crown, being Petr Cech's substitute.
