After three matches in the stands with suspension, Darwin Nunez was thrown straight into the team at the Merseyside derby on Saturday.
The striker made it to two ends with a header, a superb shot on the crossbar and a quick finish to the straight ball saved by Jordan Pickford.
His integration into the team was a start, and that’s just the way it is. We play all the time, which means we can’t train all the time. He was off for a week when we had two or three regular sessions, the rest was individual when he had to do more, Jürgen Klopp’s verdict after ‘come back’.
– In the sessions we had, he looked very good, but he still has to find his place in the team. It’s totally normal, he continues.
– Will score in the future
Klopp believes the 23-year-old will take advantage of some of these opportunities in the future.
We know he will score for these opportunities in the future. It was so much fun for him today. We had to make decisions. Bobby has been injured in the past and has now played two or three very good matches. Wednesdays and Saturdays are usually tough, which is why we chose to start with Darwin, who managed to hit 80 minutes.
– Don’t worry but that’s the situation. He says everything is fine.
The next Liverpool game is already on Tuesday. The whole red will face Naples away from home.
