Liverpool fans can be very happy with what £50m January signing Luis Diaz had to offer on his Premier League debut in an impressive performance in the Reds’ routine win over Leicester.

Diaz, who scored 22 goals combined with assistants in 29 games for Porto in the first half of the campaign, was given half an hour sitting on the bench against Cardiff in the FA Cup at the weekend but was selected for the first time in the XI. as Leicester arrives in Merseyside on Thursday night.

With just 90 minutes to go in his Premier League career, the Colombian player looks set to become another champion from the club’s well-known recruitment department.

Liverpool were widely praised for their transfer – which saw them beat Tottenham – before Luis Diaz kicked the ball. As long as he has them, there is strong evidence to support that.

Fans could not be forgiven for thinking that Diaz had been part of the Liverpool team for years rather than the few days he did. He soon appeared to click with his new partners and buy on the strategic needs set by Jurgen Klopp.

The vibrant relationship on the left side with Andrew Robertson has been significant and will be something to look forward to in the coming weeks and months.

Only two good things to save Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel – who had been in top form all night to prevent top-seeded Liverpool from reaching the points – prevented Diaz from marking the event with a goal or more.
