Luis Diaz Pulls Off Incredible Piece Of Skill

Luis Diaz produced a moment of sublime skill, as Liverpool took on Everton in a huge Merseyside derby for both teams on Sunday.

Diaz has hit the ground running since signing for Liverpool in January, and has already become an integral part of their push for an historic quadruple.

On Sunday, the forward didn't start against Everton but came on in the second half for Sadio Mane, as Jurgen Klopp's side pushed for a winner.

He came up with a moment of pure magic, in a match that was generally more pragmatic and battling than beautiful, bringing the ball down with the most wonderful of touches.

Liverpool knew that they needed to win because Manchester City had beaten Watford 5-1 on Saturday to go back to four points clear of their title rivals.

Frank Lampard's side were also in need of any kind of result as Burnley's win over Wolves earlier on Sunday, their seventh point in a week, had put the Toffees into the relegation zone for the first time this season.

The visitors set up to defend and hope to hit their hosts on the break and for long spells it looked like it might even work, and they may have had a penalty in the second half.

With half an hour left, Klopp turned to Diaz and Divock Origi to make a difference, and it was the Belgian involved in the opener.

He received a pass from Mohamed Salah in the box, laid it back off to the Egyptian, who crossed for Andrew Robertson to head home for the opener in the 62nd minute.

Diaz's first touch of the game then saw him create magic and, with five minutes left, Origi then had his usual impact on the Merseyside derby by scoring the Reds' second of the game.
