Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez went under the spotlight in the last few hours after the Reds’ 4-1 impressive victory against Chelsea in Anfield on the twenty-second day of the 2023/2024 Premier League season after dominating the Blues from the start to the end in a sensational performance of the Jürgen Klopp’s team.

Future defined, Klopp confirms what he will do after leaving Liverpool

The manager, who received the kindness of the Anfield public again, set a competitive lineup who profited every defensive mistake conceded by the visitors, who left a really bad image in a great game, while Darwin was the only player from the Liverpool’s attack who, despite trying everything during the clash, remained scoreless at the end of it.

Diogo Jota opened the scoring for Liverpool in the 23rd after finishing a great play and crossed pass by Conor Bradley, who delivered a sensational performance against Chelsea and scored the second goal for the Reds in the 39th minute of the clash trough a powerful right footed shot following a wonderful run from the right flank. Darwin Nunez missed a penalty in the 47th and was the object of horrible scoring luck again, as the player ended the game scoreless despite having been one of the best assets on the pitch for Liverpool alongside Conor Bradley.

Nunez couldn’t shine as a finisher

The young player gave his second assist in the night in the 65th, when he sent a great cross from the right to allow Szoboszlai to score the third goal for the Reds, which was followed by a great play by Chelsea in the 71st where Nkunku reduced distances in the scoreboard for the visitors. Nunez appeared again in the last minutes to assist Luis Diaz, who made the fourth goal of the Reds in a game where the Uruguayan striker shined in the attack but not as a finisher.
