Jamie Carragher highlights the role of Luis Diaz as he proves the catalyst for Liverpool’s second-half European comeback

Posted by

After calling out for him to be brought on at half-time, Jamie Carragher’s prayers were answered as Luis Diaz changed the game in Spain.

Although Jordan Henderson wasn’t part of the changes by Jurgen Klopp, it was an amazing call from our former defender and proved very prophetic.

The Colombian came onto the pitch and within minutes the game felt different, he was a huge part of the change of fortune and performance.

It wasn’t just our No.23 and there’s certainly no slight on Diogo Jota’s first-half performance but the whole squad was phenomenal and did what was needed.

We looked like a beaten side at the break but the changes proved vital, leading to the Bootle-born pundit to write on his Twitter account: ‘@LuisFDiaz19 that’s the tweet. #VILLIV’.

Few will disagree with statement and his role in our comeback was huge.
