With the absence of Mohamed Salah and the injuries of Darwin Núñez and Diogo Jota, Luis Díaz has been the main figure in Liverpool’s forward line. In the Reds’ recent games, the Colombian has been a key player in Jurgen Klopp’s 11 and has scored in the victories of the current Premier League leading team. In the 4-1 comeback against Luton last night, he was the figure of the match and scored the third goal at Anfield.

With his goal against the Hatters he added 10 goals this season, which positions him as Liverpool’s fifth scorer. After the game, Conor Bradley, his teammate and team defender, spoke about the “nightmare” that Luis Díaz can be on the court.

“He is my worst training nightmare, I hate facing him!” said the Northern Irishman to Liverpoolfc.com. “It can go left, it can go right. He is playing brilliantly at the moment and hopefully he continues like this for a long time.”

“It’s the worst thing for a full-back when someone can go over the line or come in, it’s a nightmare. The fact that he can go left footed or right footed is brilliant for us, and it causes all sorts of problems for teams.”

Liverpool’s next game

Leader Liverpool regained its four-point advantage over Manchester City, second placed, thanks to its comeback victory (4-1) over modest Luton Town, this Wednesday in an early match of the 26th day of the Premier League.

With 60 points, the Reds once again distance themselves at the top of the table, after Manchester City moved to within one point by beating Brentford 1-0, with a goal from Erling Haaland, in a match that had been pending since the 18th working day.

Liverpool has, however, one more game played than City, who visits Bournemouth on Saturday. If Josep Guardiola’s men win, they will once again be on the heels of the leader, but they will not be able to surpass him for the moment.

The reason that Liverpool has brought forward its duel on the next English matchday against Luton a few days is that it will not be able to play it, as planned, this weekend, since on Sunday Jürgen Klopp’s pupils will face Chelsea in the League Cup final at Wembley.
