When Liverpool confirmed the signing of Luis Diaz in January this year, they did so knowing that in the long term he would give them a lot of satisfaction. However, the Colombian's high level led to his immediate impact on the pitch. Now, with a new season ahead, the demands on the 'Guajiro' have increased and he will now have to assume a different role in the 'Reds'.

It is no secret that, with half a season in the Premier League, many defenders already know what the 25-year-old winger's strengths are. This means that he will probably not have the same facilities to unbalance on the left and will have to find ways to continue to be decisive.

Likewise, with the departure of Sadio Mané to Bayern Munich, Luis Díaz will have a mission that will not be very easy to fulfill: to cover the goal-scoring quota left by the Senegalese. Beyond the signing of Darwin Núñez, the Colombian, playing in the same position as the current Bavarian player, will have to be more accurate when he enters the box or has to change roles with the other two strikers in the Reds' offense.

Luis Díaz already knows perfectly well what it means to be key in front of the opponent's goal, since he scored almost every weekend at Porto and the scoring responsibility of the 'Blue Dragons' fell on his shoulders. Now, with Darwin Núñez and Mohamed Salah as attacking partners, the ex-Junior de Barranquilla player will have to get on the same wavelength quickly for his efforts to be reflected in his numbers.

Andy Robertson, a key element for Diaz

On the other hand, Luis Diaz will have to consolidate a perfect tandem with Andrew Robertson, as he was doing at the end of last season. The Scottish fullback plays in the same sector as the Colombian, so it is almost a given that they will meet on more than one occasion per game.

Just as Robertson will have to understand Diaz's movements, Diaz will have to do the same when the left-footed player deploys all his speed until he reaches the back line. In those partnerships, Liverpool will have a weapon that could prove lethal to opponents.
