Jurgen Klopp on Luis Diaz's performance against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final

Jurgen Klopp has praised Luis Diaz after his exceptional performance in the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea.

Luis Diaz was Liverpool's main threat on Sunday against Chelsea. Every time the ball reached the Colombian he looked like he was going to create something.

He has only been in the squad for a month but he already looks like he has been playing for Jurgen Klopp's side for years.

Speaking at his pre-Norwich press conference, as cited by Anfield Watch, the Liverpool manager was full of praise for the 24-year-old.

"He did really well. We need this kind of quality. He did incredibly well. Hopefully, it'll stay like this as long as possible. He just had fatigue at Wembley. No injury," said Klopp.

"He was still fighting really hard. It was an incredibly intense game. It was absolutely insane."

Anfield Watch Verdict

Tottenham have done Liverpool a massive favour this season. The Reds were going to wait until the summer to approach FC Porto about Diaz but their interest forced Michael Edwards' team to act early.

Luckily, the Colombian only ever had his heart set on Liverpool and playing under Jurgen Klopp.

It is clear to see that the 24-year-old has what it takes to be a top Premier League winger and under the guidance of Klopp, he could become one of the best players in the world.

Liverpool fans should be very excited about the future of this club. With Diogo Jota looking like he is ready to become the main striker and Luis Diaz giving Sadio Mane some much needed competition, things are only going to get better.

Hopefully, the Colombian can keep up this form as he is going to be a key part of Liverpool challenging on all fronts for the rest of the season.
