Watch Liverpool ace Luis Diaz 'send Chelsea's Reece James back to bed' with outrageous skill before nailing no-look pass

February 28, 2022

LIVERPOOL star Luis Diaz impressed fans as he helped his side to victory in yesterday's Carabao Cup final.

The Reds new-boy appears to have settled in quickly at Anfield, already earning a starting berth in yesterday's big match ahead of Diogo Jota.

Diaz caused plenty of problems down Liverpool's left side with his trickery and directness.

And one moment in particular seems to have caught the imagination of Reds fans.

Diaz, 25, went up against Chelsea ace Reece James, who was making his first appearance since December having struggled with a hamstring injury.

After receiving a pass down the left touchline from Andy Robertson, Diaz beautifully flicked the ball around James with the outside of his boot, before scurrying around the England full-back.

In the blink of an eye he was racing forward, before playing Sadio Mane in behind with a no-look pass.

Unfortunately for Liverpool the move came to nothing when the Senegalese star overhit his cross.

But the moment didn't go unnoticed by supporters.

One wrote online: "Watch how Luis Diaz sends Reece James back to bed. He is going to be a monster!"

While another commented: "Look at this touch from Luis Diaz to get around from Reece James. This guy is the real deal."

A third added: "Watched the game and I was always looking forward to see him with the ball, brilliant control, good technique, serious footballer man is good 👏"

While a fourth joked: "Was making no look passes like his life depended on it."

Diaz has now made six appearances for the Reds since his January switch from Porto.

The Colombian opened his account for his new club by netting in the recent 3-1 victory over Norwich.
