After having endured endless criticism since his arrival, the striker Darwin Nunez has been able to show through hard work and a great mentality to eventually be one of the important players of the group, and although his main role as a striker for which he was hired has still much to be desired, it is true that coach Jürgen Klopp has been able to take advantage of other qualities that the Uruguayan has, being his effectiveness as an assistant a great revelation that can give him his first great satisfaction in the Carabao Cup tournament where he will play the final against Chelsea.

Darwin Nunez is better than Haaland and the data to prove it

After Liverpool got through the semifinals against Fulham with some complications, the Reds' charrúa player will arrive at Wembley Stadium on February 25 with the possibility of not only winning his second title with the team, but also of claiming the record for the highest number of assists during the 90 minutes of this edition, with Nunez tied for the moment with Trent Alexander Arnold with 3 assists each.

It is true that this would be the first occasion in which Nunez could lead one of the great offensive statistics of the team, needing against Chelsea to generate an assist that puts him ahead of TAA, being perhaps a little difficult to achieve it since it is expected that at that time the group returns to normal and its main function within the starting eleven is to score all the opportunities generated by his teammates.

Darwin has been discovering throughout this season that he has shown some of his best soccer when he is a bit far from the goal area, being precisely the first leg against the Cottagers a perfect example of this situation, since his intervention in that game was far from the opponent's area, getting two key passes that gave them the overall advantage.

Although it is not known what is the possibility of being able to see Mohamed Salah play this match, the Uruguayan attacker is aware that the reappearance of the Egyptian could give him that push he needs to succeed personally and as a group, and it is worth remembering that the duo of Nunez with Mo' was one of the greatest at the beginning of the campaign, and this lethal duo could reappear and try to win their first trophy of the season.
