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.
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.
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.
