Darwin Nunez’s missed chance (23′) gave Liverpool’s big deal a rocky start to life in England.
No player has missed more chances than the player who was bought from Benfica in pre-season for a total package of more than 1 billion crowns.
Criticism poured in and the striker was occasionally mocked on social media for abusing big scoring chances.
So far, Nunez has missed 15 out of 19 big chances in the Premier League. This amounts to 79 percent.
But even if not everything goes the Liverpool star’s way, many people are stepping up to his defence.
– He’s an easy player to write off. It’s easy to say he doesn’t score goals, but he does get into areas where he can punish opponents and that’s all you can ask for. Goals will come, and we have a lot of confidence in that,” teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold says in an interview Football Daily.
The King of Liverpool welcomed the signing of Uruguay with a game that caused sarcasm from the opposition fans afterwards.
It wasn’t until a 2-2 draw against Wolves in the FA Cup when Alexander-Arnold’s first pass came to Darwin Nunez, who has scored five league goals so far.
In total, he has ten goals in 23 matches. The Premier League’s all-time top scorer makes clear what he thinks of the Liverpool striker’s criticism.
Alan Shearer scored 260 league goals during his career. He has noted in comparisons to Erling Braut Haaland and supporters singing that Núñez is “just Andy Carroll’s ass”.
Most of it is horribly unfair, Shearer writes the athlete.
Especially after the match against Aston Villa, Nunez made a review. The striker missed four great chances. No player has missed more in the same game this season:
Darwin played a great game. He will score goals. I have no doubt about it, but it gives us so much more than that. “Darwin’s performance was exceptional,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said at the press conference. winning 3-1.
