Watch Luis Diaz dribble past FIVE Crystal Palace players before firing in wondergoal to save 10-man Liverpool at Anfield
LUIS DIAZ scored an OUTRAGEOUS solo goal in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday night.
Jurgen Klopp’s men started fast in their first home match of the season but failed to find the breakthrough.
And Palace made them pay in the 32nd minute when Eberechi Eze sent Wilfried Zaha away on the break and the Eagles talisman finished superbly to give the visitors a shock lead.
Things then went from bad to worse for Liverpool after the break.
Darwin Nunez’s senseless headbutt on Joachim Andersen saw the Uruguayan receive a straight red on his home debut.
But just as the match seemed to be slipping away from Liverpool, Diaz stepped up to produce a moment of magic.
Cutting in from the left-hand side, the Colombian forward weaved his way past five Palace shirts before rifling a spectacular shot beyond Vicente Guaita.
It was a breathtaking strike which looked set to inspire Liverpool to victory.
Diaz’s passionate celebration sent the crowd wild as the Merseyside outfit sensed a first win of the campaign.
However, Patrick Vieira’s side stood firm and withstood late pressure to leave Anfield with an impressive point.

It means Liverpool only have two draws to show for the start of their campaign following a 2-2 draw with Fulham on the opening weekend.
They are already four points adrift of reigning champions Manchester City as they swatted aside Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday to maintain their perfect start.
Next up for Klopp’s side is a trip to Old Trafford on Monday to take on rivals Manchester United.
Liverpool will be looking to inflict a third successive defeat on Erik ten Hag’s side – who currently sit bottom of the Premier League following losses to Brighton and Brentford.
