Liverpool new boy Luis Diaz saw plenty of the ball in the opening stages of their Premier League match against Leicester City, with fans loving what they're seeing.
After making an immediate impact against Cardiff City in the FA Cup last weekend, Diaz was handed a starting spot in Jurgen Klopp's XI on Thursday.
And the Colombian winger wasted no time to make an impression as he ran the show, lighting up the first-half.
He was confident on the ball and looked very lively, picking it up and driving at Leicester's defence while linking up nicely with Andy Robertson.
Excellent debut for my man Luis Diaz. Can't be too unhappy about that first half Liverpool performance, fully in control— Hazza (@AzzurriLFC) February 10, 2022
Mad how we attribute some signings needing a few weeks/months to bed in and learn the system and Luis Diaz has just rocked up like he’s been here ages.— The Redmen TV (@TheRedmenTV) February 10, 2022
Leicester reduced to kicking lumps out of him.

Early doors, of course, but encouraging signs for Klopp who will hope Diaz can help Liverpool's title charge this season.
Speaking before kick-off, the German boss spoke about his decision to start the 25-year-old.
"Luis Diaz is an exciting prospect - we had a look at who was available and the natural speed of Luis, especially when Mo is not starting, makes sense to get some depth into our game," he told BT Sport.
