Liverpool star Luis Diaz has been compared to Reds hero Luis Suarez by Paul Merson ahead of their FA Cup final clash against Chelsea on Saturday afternoon - and the Colombian has been tipped to win Jurgen Klopp's men the trophy under the famous arch at Wembley.

Merson has compared the South American winger to Suarez - who is arguably Liverpool's best ever striker in the Premier League era - for his tenacious and energetic style of play, claiming he 'ticks every box'.

"Luis Diaz reminds me of Luis Suarez and he could win Liverpool the FA Cup final this weekend even if he doesn't start," Merson told the Daily Star.

"I just think he's a fantastic player who has settled quicker than smoke - and he's going to win more than Suarez ever did at Anfield."

"Suarez had one sensational season at Liverpool but the only trophy he ever won was the League Cup in 2012. Diaz has already done that and he's going to end up winning a lot, lot more. He's always on the front foot, always gets the ball forward, makes good runs off the ball. He's a nightmare for defenders because you can't pick him up."

"He's quick and direct and if he loses the ball he works his socks off to get it back. Suarez was the same. He ticks every box. I can't believe how outstanding he's been coming to a much tougher league - and he's had a tougher job than Suarez. Suarez came into a lesser team where he could become a big star quickly. But Diaz has come into one of the best teams in Europe."

"He's had to fight just to get in the team because Liverpool's front three is already the best in the business. Words can't explain how good he's been in my opinion. He's not even guaranteed to start the final." The Reds have a chance to win the quadruple still, although that goal may be far-fetched such is their gap to Manchester City in the league.
