Díaz and Liverpool host Toulouse and seek to confirm their UEL leadership


Liverpool with a perfect score, they host a Toulouse team at Anfield that is also undefeated in Group E of the UEFA Europa LeagueThe team of Luis Diaz will seek victory to remain leader of the series, the Reds have 6 points, while the French team has 4 points.

It is a new opportunity for Luis Díaz to reunite with the goalthe Colombian is one of the most influential and unbalancing in Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool, but he has seven games (including two with the National Team) in which he has not been able to score. Precisely the last time he celebrated the guajiro was at UEL during the game they beat LASK Linz from Austria, in this contest ‘Lucho’ totaled 135 minutes played.

Liverpool meet Toulouse again after sixteen years, the last time they faced each other was in 2007 in the Champions League and the last of their games against each other ended 4-0 in favor of the English team. The Reds now come into this game with seven wins in a row playing at their stadium.

Toulouse tops England with four games in a row without losing, but its record as a visitor is not encouraging at all, the French team has five away games in which it has not been able to achieve a victory.

Klopp will have to move the team due to some discomfort that several of his players have and the rotation he must do with his squad. Also thinking about their fight to go to the top of the Premier League, Andrew Robertson, Thiago Alcantara, Stefan Bajcetic, Ben Doak will not be there, while Cody Gakpo is in doubt and they would wait for him until the last minute. For his part, Curtis Jones would return to the team’s starter.

“Darwin is in a very good moment, it took him some time to adapt, but everyone is very happy with him. We made a decision on who of the two could start against Everton, Díaz or Darwin. Luis’ job was to create, Darwin came in and killed the game, that was the idea (…) Toulouse deserves all our respect. It’s a very interesting story, I would say. Winning the French Cup last year and finishing 13th in the championship. Winning the French Cup is huge (…) it is really a brilliant team, with a lot of talent, a football team, and we have seen them play. It’s really nice. “They have a clear idea,” said the coach.
