Luis Diaz Starred On His Premier League Debut For Liverpool - His Individual Highlights Are Something Else

Luis Diaz enjoyed a stunning Premier League debut for Liverpool, with his individual highlights making for incredible viewing. 

Diaz started against Leicester City on Thursday after impressing in a cameo appearance versus Cardiff City in the FA Cup last weekend. 

The Colombian winger, who cost an initial £37.5 million, starred on the left wing and linked up intelligently with Andy Robertson. 

He showed off his dribbling skills, taking on Leicester's backline as he lit up the first half.

Diaz remained a threat in the second half as he created chances and had three attempts at goal.

Diaz made way for Takumi Minamino​ in the 90th and received a standing ovation from the Anfield faithful.  

At half-time, Michael Owen showered the 25-year-old with glowing praise - highlighting his sharpness, pace and ball control. 

"Do you know what, we were just drooling over him after 15 minutes," he told BT Sport. ​

"He hasn’t done anything in particular where you think 'wow he’s created an unbelievable chance' but I love his sharpness.

"He looks quick, he looks lively, he presses the ball, he doesn’t mind committing players running at them and beating them."

Owen added: "As I say, none of these clips you think 'wow' but I think he looks like a Liverpool player.

"He really does look like he’s going to fit into this team like a glove.

"A brilliant player that we’ve seen before and already in a fleeting appearance so far he looks like he suits that red shirt."

With Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane back from AFCON, Klopp has a nice selection dilemma on his hands ahead of resuming their league campaign against Burnley on Sunday.
