Liverpool’s January signing Luis Diaz put in another impressive display as the Reds thrashed Leeds 6-0 at Anfield last night.
The Colombian international has started his career at the Merseyside club in impressive style, and fans on Twitter are backing him to keep his place for the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea this weekend:
Sharp as a razor, very dynamic. Inside outside runs, strong on the ball. Intelligent.

He’s too good to be left on the bench. And I love mane so much but I have to admit man decision making is far ahead of Mane’s. Those one touch lay off quick pass he does are so damn good.

Diaz already looks at home in a Liverpool shirt. He should have added another goal to his name early in the Leeds match, only for his curling effort to be blocked by his own player Sadio Mane.
In terms of him starting on Sunday at Wembley, you’d have to say there is every chance he will be named in the eleven, especially with manager Jurgen Klopp sweating over the fitness of both Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino.
Of course, it is hard to tell whether Diaz will maintain this level of form, but there is no denying that he is looking like a great signing already.
