Liverpool’s newcomer Luis Diaz made quite an impression on social media after having a ‘seamless’ start to life at the club.

Diaz, who joined from Porto in the winter transfer window, was given his first Premier League start, with Mohamed Salah listed on the bench, and made an immediate impact.

For Jurgen Klopp’s side, Diogo Jota scored both goals. But it was Diaz on the flank who got the Anfield crowd out of their seats.

Online fans have gushed about his tenacity, which comes as no surprise. ‘If you were a #lfc fan who had been sleeping for 5 years and had to pick a player making his debut, there is no way you would pick Diaz,’ one fan said. ‘An absolute masterpiece in scouting for a system and finding the right, hand-in-glove fit from the LFC nerds.’

‘It’s early days, but Diaz looks like he’s going to be some player!’ said another.

‘So far, I’m quite impressed, and the fact that he made his first start after only 6 days or so with us is incredible.’

‘Luis Diaz has smoothly integrated into our team,’ stated a third. ‘His tactical and positional understanding are exceptional. Excellent close control.

‘Strong, swift, and efficient. Even after just one game, it’s clear that he’ll be a key player for us. Like [Harvey] Elliott, for example. Both of them exude elegance.’

‘Luis Diaz literally looks dangerous every time he touches the ball,’ said a fourth.

‘First and foremost, what a performance by Luis Diaz,’ said a fifth. Our new Colombian sensation put on a fantastic performance.’ He was unlucky not to get a goal, but he was always a threat. I can’t wait for him to settle down. We’re going to witness something incredible.’

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen was equally amazed, admitting that he and his punditry colleagues were ‘drooling’ over Diaz minutes into the game.

‘Do you know what, after 15 minutes, we were just drooling over him,’ he added during the half-time break. ‘ He hasn’t done anything that makes you go. “Wow, he’s created a great opportunity. But I admire his wit”.

‘He appears to be quick and lively, he rushes the ball, and he isn’t afraid to commit players by running at them and beating them.’

As I have stated, none of these films make you think “wow,” but I believe he has the appearance of a Liverpool player.

‘He looks like he’ll fit right in with this group.’

‘A terrific player who we’ve seen before and who, based on his brief performance so far, appears to suit that red shirt.’
