After his performance against Wolves last night, Luis Diaz left cheering for one of his teammates from Liverpool

About Football Express UK

Liverpool player and winger Luis Diaz applauded teammate Harvey Elliott for his display against Wolves last night BBC’s Man of the Match award went to Elliott in recognition of his excellent performance. As a result, Liverpool advanced in the FA Cup after scoring a long-range goal from him after 13 minutes.

Elliott thanked the visiting Reds fans on Instagram after the game, showing how happy he was with his evening’s work. “For you reds! Thank you,” the 19-year-old wrote.

Caoimhin Kelleher and Adrian, two Liverpool goalkeepers, were among those who responded. Adrian penned “Booooom golazo!” whereas Kelleher chose the more subdued “What a strike.”

Luis Diaz was one more to praise Elliott’s influence. The Colombian decided against responding verbally because he was still having trouble with his English. That’ll do it: a cheering emoji next to a fire emoji.

We can’t think of a better way to put it after such a stunning strike than that.

Luis Diaz hails a great performance by Harvey Elliot

Elliott’s performance was significantly improved in addition to his goal, which was a superb piece of play.

The 19-year-old has at times this season appeared lost in the Liverpool midfield. That’s hardly Elliott’s fault because everyone else around him is at sea as well.

But despite all this, the kid has never shied away from anything. For good cause, he is the only player to have appeared in every game Liverpool has played this year.

Throughout those games, Elliott has failed miserably numerous times. But he never loses the urge to make the Reds fans happy as they head home.

He appeared to be a guy on a mission when facing the Wolves. The No. 19 harassed and pressured Julen Lopetegui’s men the entire game, playing back in his potentially more advantageous right-sided wing position.

The highlight undoubtedly was the goal. But possibly even more significant was Elliot’s constant energy and work ethic. Although he wasn’t the only person to step up last night, Luis Diaz is justified in praising his young coworker. Harvey played it well.
