Luis Diaz made an instant impression on his Liverpool debut, recording a classy assist in his side's FA Cup win over Cardiff City.
Jurgen Klopp threw his January signing on in the second half, with the Colombia winger taking just 11 minutes to make an impact.

Diaz, who joined the Anfield club for an initial £37.5 million, showed off his silky footwork to create an opening for his new team.
He capitalised on some awful defending to set up Takumi Minamino who tucked the ball into the back of the net to double their advantage.
A nice introduction for Diaz, who, of course, will have harder tests ahead of him in the Premier League.
But Liverpool fans are excited with the addition of the 25-year-old.
One tweeted: "Was like Suarez footwork."
A second wrote: "What a debut from him."

Diogo Jota opened the scoring for Liverpool, heading home in the 53rd minute.
Minamino got his team's second, with returning Harvey Elliott bagging a third.
The Championship team pulled one back through Rubin Colwill.
Liverpool's 3-1 victory means they face Norwich City in the next round.
