Jota has scored 13 goals in the Premier League so far this term, including the opener against Arsenal on Wednesday. Diaz meanwhile has impressed hugely since joining the Reds from Porto in January, with former Liverpool boss Graeme Souness hailing the Colombian as a “manager’s dream”.
“He is any manager’s dream. What I like about him is what he does without the ball, as well as with it. He is not the biggest guy, but he is willing to get back and put a challenge in. If this is his level, he is going to be in the first 11 every week. He has got everything that Mane has got, and more,” Souness told Sky Sports on Wednesday.
