Ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher revealed he was thrill with Luis Diaz’ performance in the Carabao Cup final win over Chelsea on penalties after a 0-0 draw on penalties last sunday.
Jürgen Klopp’s side lifted their first trophy of the season after 11 men on penalties, and it was Blues’ Kepa Arrizabalaga who missed the shot lost.
In this ufabet game, “Reds” had the opportunity to score several times, but not through the hands of Eduard Mendy, which Carragher appreciated the performance of the new attacker who played impressively.
“The interesting point in signing Diaz is that Liverpool signed him because Tottenham only approached him,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“I think he can make a huge difference for Liverpool this time of the season. Not just because of his work. He was brilliant today, but what do you think Liverpool would have been like without him?
“Jota wasn’t fully prepared, Firmino miss, so you only play. With Salah and Mane and maybe Minamino and Origi. Who we know are not at our own level. While Diaz is confident.
“He can make a huge difference for Liverpool in terms of winning trophies, what can tell you. How well he’s playing is Sadio Mane being substituted, he stays on the pitch and he looks belonging. true”
“He only played four or five games and maybe in those games he was Liverpool’s best player back then, he came in and now looks like a different person.”
