A wonderfully technical player, his skill set in possession was simply superb at times. His tenacious nature grew through the first half, as neat possession started to grow into brilliant penetration. The first half was a frustration for the reds, but it was clear that Diaz would be relied upon to keep the home side ticking along.
He got his goal to level proceedings, after another roaming dribble inside. The luck off the deflected effort couldn’t hide the danger he portrayed. So many times the reds are having to work through a deep block, and he was needed more than ever to keep their hopes of the League title alive, just.
