The player who has generated the most surprise this season due to the high level he has shown so far is Darwin Núñez, who started the season as a substitute and has now earned the full confidence of Jürgen Klopp, his teammates and the fans. He has shown great confidence which is reflected in what he does on the pitch, where he fulfils various tasks in addition to being the goalscorer.

Núñez has known how to use his strengths to take advantage of his rivals, as he knows how to use his speed to easily beat rival defenders when there are open spaces where the Uruguayan can take advantage to quickly win their backs. Demonstrating intelligence, speed and positioning.

In addition, his goalscoring quota has increased a lot compared to last season and he is a very important player for the Reds. So with the injury to Merseyside star Mohamed Salah, the Uruguayan will be tasked with replacing the Pharaoh as the leader of the Reds' attack until Salah returns to Anfield.

This is a special opportunity for Nunez who will have to prove that he is up to the task of helping Liverpool maintain top spot in the Premier League. Nunez arrives in a great moment where he has made the difference with 3 goals and 3 assists in the last 5 games for the Reds.

At Anfield things seem to be looking good for the duo

After the departure of Mohamed Salah to participate with the Egyptian national team in the African Cup of Nations, Liverpool lost the partner of Darwin Nunez, with whom he has already contributed in several goals, with the Uruguayan assisting the Egyptian and Salah assisting Nunez. So now Nunez must find another goal partner, as with Diogo Jota seems to have the beginnings to be a good duo, as they did well together against Bournemouth. So we will have to wait until they can finish understanding their way of playing together.
