Alan Shearer wowed the 25-year-old Liverpool man after FA Cup win

Alan Shearer has declared that Luis Diaz was “absolutely gorgeous” in Liverpool’s 3-2 FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City at Wembley. as he said Match of the Day.

The Premier League’s all-time top scorer added that Diaz is a “tough” and “brave” player for Liverpool.

That’s three games between Liverpool and Man City this season, the Premier League games – both 2-2 – couldn’t separate them but Jurgen Klopp won the Wembley clashes yesterday.

When you consider that Liverpool’s second-highest goalscorer this season, Diogo Jota, came on the field just five minutes from time, that tells you everything there is to know about this strong Merseyside forward line.

Shearer was impressed by Liverpool’s January signing and what the 25-year-old brings to an already strong forward line.

“Every Liverpool player was there,” said Shearer. “But Mane and Diaz were absolutely amazing. Clever finish (Mane’s second goal). And I hate to say it, but the keeper has to save it.

“He (Diaz) is tough. He is brave. They gave him crunching tackles and he just stands up. He says ‘no problem, keep passing me the ball’. He was great.”

That win doesn’t directly impact the Premier League title race, but it could perhaps give the Reds that extra boost.

Injuries to Kevin de Bruyne, who was a substitute yesterday, and Kyle Walker, who was not included in the matchday squad, have hurt Man City.

But they don’t have too much time to think about it because they face Brighton on Wednesday night.

They could be sitting second at kick-off as a point for Liverpool at home to Manchester United on Tuesday night will be enough for Klopp’s side to take the lead.
