Nunez finished the first half of the season with 8 goals and 8 assists in 27 games for the Reds. So while these are not bad numbers, an improvement was expected from the Uruguayan, who seems to have finished his adaptation and is now starting his best level. So far in 2024 and facing a saturated calendar of matches, Núñez has contributed 5 goals in 4 games, being Liverpool's best player at the beginning of the year.

The Uruguayan is already a record-breaker, having reached 10 goals and 10 assists this season for Liverpool in all competitions. Something no one has ever done before in the Premier League. So the Uruguayan is having an excellent 2024, and it seems to be his year to shine with Liverpool. Darwin is now the Premier League's new goalscoring star.

Surpassing the Norwegian Erling Haaland for this new record, also the Uruguayan is being better, as well as making very important goals for the team, he has more craft than Haaland, as the Norwegian is usually more of a finisher than a creator, while Nunez knows how to create scoring opportunities for his teammates, having more sacrifice with the whole team.
