Liverpool news: Luis Diaz efforts noticed as Man City face injury woe

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have been handed an unexpected boost with the news that Colombian star Luis Diaz is set to return from injury ahead of their crunch clash against Manchester City next Tuesday.

The Reds have been dealt a major blow in the form of a string of injuries to key players, but it appears Diaz could be set to ease their worries.

The 27-year-old winger has been sidelined since August after suffering a hamstring injury in the Reds’ pre-season friendly against Tranmere Rovers.

But now, Diaz has been included in Klopp’s squad for the Premier League clash with City and could make his first start in nearly five months.

The news will come as a huge boost to Klopp, who has seen his side struggle in recent weeks as they have failed to replicate the form of last season when they won the Premier League.

However, while Liverpool have been handed a fitness boost, their opponents have been dealt a major blow with the news that Gabriel Jesus will miss the game with a muscle injury.

The Brazilian striker has been in sensational form for the Citizens this season, scoring 14 goals in all competitions.

His absence could prove to be a major blow for Pep Guardiola’s side and will certainly give Klopp’s side a huge boost going into the game.

Diaz’s return from injury could prove to be a timely boost for Liverpool as they look to get their season back on track.

The winger has been in good form when fit this season and will be keen to make an impact against City.

It remains to be seen if Diaz will be able to make the difference for Liverpool, but one thing is certain, his efforts have not gone unnoticed and Klopp will be hoping he can help his side to victory on Tuesday night.
