Liverpool: revengeful Darwin Nuñez takes date


By: Manu Tournoux

Liverpool’s season is almost perfect so far. Winner of the Carabao Cup against Chelsea in the final (1-0) after extra time, the club is currently leading the way in the Premier League where a championship “final” awaits this Sunday against Manchester City at Anfield. A small point currently separates the two English ogres before the start of their fratricidal duel. Everyone is waiting for this meeting across the Channel. It has even already started on social networks and the media through little sentences dropped here and there.

A sort of match within the match, an attacker duel will be particularly scrutinized between the irresistible Erling Haaland and Darwin Nuñez. The latter will appear on the lawn in sparkling form. The Uruguayan struck again yesterday in the Europa League on the field of Sparta Prague with a double and a large 5-1 success for his team. Suffice to say that the road to the quarter-finals is clear and the quest for a possible quadruple (Liverpool are also qualified for the quarter-finals of the FA Cup against Manchester United, editor’s note) more relevant than ever.

Jürgen Klopp loves him

This would be the biggest farewell gift from Jürgen Klopp, who will be leaving at the end of the season. Nuñez even scored Liverpool’s 1,000th goal under the charismatic German manager on Thursday. “He has the most important attitude that a striker should have on these kinds of occasions. He is a constant threat and he gives us spaces, zones and options. he assured after yesterday’s success in Czech lands. The former Benfica player, recruited for €75 million a year and a half ago, is progressing, like this goal snatched in the dying seconds last weekend against Nottingham Forest. He has even just surpassed his statistics from his first season in England (16 goals and 11 assists in 39 TCC matches).

His clumsiness doesn’t let him go either, like this meeting against the Blues last month where he hit the posts 4 times! Nevertheless, the criticism slides on him. “It doesn’t bother him. He keeps on”asserts Klopp, despite the mocking chants of opposing supporters. “He had more than a good first season but he had to adapt, and today, and he is installed in the teamcontinues the German coach. He loves playing for the club and with these boys. If he is at his peak? Not yet but it can develop.” Response against Manchester City on Sunday.
