Luis Diaz continues to make a case for being the best ever January signing in Premier League history after starring again for Liverpool this evening.
The Colombian winger completely changed the game against Villarreal a week ago when he came on at half-time with Liverpool 2-0 down and sparked a stunning 3-2 Champions League semi-final second leg win.
He then levelled matters against Spurs at Anfield on Saturday night and continued his electric form this evening against Aston Villa.
With the Reds drawing 1-1 in a must-win clash, the former Porto man provided a special moment of quality for Sadio Mane's winner.

He shimmied down the left and created just enough space to feed in a pinpoint cross that Mane headed past the helpless Emiliano Martinez.
Mane got the goal, as he has on so many occasions this season, but again it was Diaz doing the business for Jurgen Klopp's side in such an important stage of the season.
If we didn’t sign Luis Diaz we probably end this season with just a Carabao Cup— 🥤 (@TheImmortalKop) May 10, 2022

Luis Diaz. Bargain of the season.— Anfield Watch (@AnfieldWatch) May 10, 2022
The 25-year-old has been unplayable ever since he came to Liverpool and £37.5 million already looks like an absolute steal.
Liverpool are still capable of winning all four trophies this season and the arrival of Diaz in the winter has been a huge factor in their quadruple chase still being within reach.
Already in possession of the Carabao Cup, the Merseysiders play Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley this weekend, while there is the small matter of the Champions League final against Real Madrid.
Domestically however, this result means Liverpool have moved level on points with leaders Manchester City, who can restore a three point gap at the top with victory against Wolves at Molineux tomorrow.
City are three goals better off than Liverpool in the tight title race.
