Liverpool winger Luis Diaz could reportedly make his return in the side’s clash with Bournemouth on Saturday (March 11). The Colombian attacker has been sidelined with a knee injury since early October.
Diaz last featured in the Merseysiders’ 3-2 defeat to Arsenal on October 9. He missed the 2022 FIFA World Cup after picking up an injury in that loss. However, Colombian journalist Diego Rueda reports that he could be available for Jurgen Klopp’s side’s trip to Dean Court.
He may also be in action when Liverpool head to the Santiago Bernabeu to face Real Madrid in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 clash on March 15. The Reds trail Los Blancos 5-2 from the first leg.
It is a welcome boost for Klopp’s side as they are starting to hit form at a vital time of the season. They thrashed Manchester United 7-0 last Sunday (March 5) and beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 four days earlier.
Liverpool sit fifth in the league, trailing fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur by three points. but have a game in hand. Klopp has been without one of his top attacking talents and Diaz’s return will only strengthen his in-form frontline.
