Jamie Carragher was left so impressed by Luis Diaz’s latest performance on the pitch for Liverpool that he suggested the winter signing’s arrival could spark a ‘special’ season for his old club.
The Colombian international was on target for the Merseysiders with a well-taken header to find an opener for Jurgen Klopp’s men against Brighton and Hove Albion.

The result sees the Anfield-based outfit climb back to within three points of league leaders Manchester City, throwing the ball back into the Cityzens’ court ahead of their visit to Selhurst Park next Monday.
From the outset, it may strange for some to laud the impact of such a signing, particularly given that he’s only registered two goals in nine appearances (across all competitions) for his new side.
The reality, of course, is that our No.23 has been utterly electric on the pitch for us since switching the Portuguese top-flight for the Premier League, providing further competition for places up top.
Constantly getting into the right areas and proving a nuisance down the left-flank, we can only see Diaz racking up some serious numbers on a regular basis once he discovers consistency in his scoring habits.
