Ex-Liverpool star hails Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez’s sidekick as a hundred million star

Liverpool clinch a significant 2-0 victory against their local rivals Everton, powered by two goals from Mohamed Salah. The match proved to be intense and challenging, yet Jurgen Klopp and his squad successfully secured the win at Anfield, securing three crucial points in the title race.

Though Salah unquestionably shone as the game’s hero, other players, including Luiz Diaz, demonstrated their vital importance. The Colombian has earned high praise from a former Liverpool player.

Luis Diaz’s stellar display earns praise from ex-Liverpool star Peter Crouch

Aside from Salah, Luiz Diaz also displayed great performance against Everton. Despite not contributing to the goals, he had a significant impact. According to WhoScored data, the talented winger completed 3 dribbles, took 3 shots on goal, and executed 2 tackles. His pass completion rate stands at an impressive 88%.

This performance follows a prolonged absence from the field due to frequent injuries. He missed a substantial portion of the previous season and even some matches in the current season. Therefore, his recent strong showing has garnered considerable praise. Jurgen Klopp can now rely on him in the team going forward.

Former Liverpool and England striker Peter Crouch also couldn’t hide his appreciation for the player. Speaking as a commentator for TNT Sports, the Englishman said Diaz is worth £100 million. “I love Diaz. He’s been like a new signing, like bringing another £100 million player in, because obviously his injuries last season. Him coming in just changes things.”

Diaz has already rejoined the team, appearing in 11 games thus far. His return bolsters the squad’s attacking depth, alongside Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota, Harvey Elliot, and Cody Gakpo.

Liverpool beat Everton in the Merseyside derby

Liverpool’s win against Everton was difficult, but it was made easier when Ashley Young got sent off in the 37th minute. He made a harsh challenge on Luiz Diaz, earning a second yellow card and subsequently a red card.

Both teams then tried to grab the winner until the 75th minute, when Salah netted a penalty. In extra time, he scored again to seal the game thanks to a Darwin Nunez assist.

The Merseyside Derby has been one-sided in recent times, with the Reds dominating their neighbors. The last time Liverpool lost to their eternal rivals was in February 2021. It was their only loss in the last 26 matches they have played. It was also their fourth clean sheet in a row against them.

Liverpool’s recent victory has propelled them to the third position in the Premier League, boasting 20 points. At the summit, Manchester City and Arsenal stand firm with 21 points, leaving Liverpool with substantial work ahead. Nevertheless, the league must remain on hold, for Liverpool is set to host Toulouse on Thursday as part of the Europa League group stage.
