After the goal that Darwin Nunez scored against Norwich in the fourth round of the FA Cup, the Uruguayan striker was hoping to start a positive streak in terms of goals against Chelsea, but it could not be so due to a big mistake he made in his penalty kick during the first half, being rare to see this player miss this kind of shots as his effectiveness is very high.

Although Nunez missed the shot that would have been at that time the 3-0, this player did not decline in attitude and came out for the second half to continue trying that final shot, ending up finding in the 79th minute not a shot but rather a goal pass that was not wasted by the Colombian Luis Diaz, getting Klopp's team the fourth of the night and Darwin with one more assist in this campaign.

It is true that the fans would have been much more satisfied if Nunez said goodbye to the duel with that penalty goal, but it seems that many have forgiven that mistake because in any case his good soccer ended up being a factor during the 90 minutes, getting during the last five games to be a crucial man in the attack, although not many value his effort to get 3 goals and 4 assists in this month where Mohamed Salah has not figured in the clashes.

Perhaps and goal productivity could be much better, but it is true that Nunez has not stopped being constant during all the games of this beginning of 2024, causing his goals and assists a good stability that make Klopp look very unconcerned even when this strategist does not have his best man in offense at his disposal, covering to perfection Darwin those multiple tasks of being a good finisher, as well as passer.

It is true that in many of the occasions several of the fans of a team tend to highlight the negative moments of their star players before the positive ones, happening a lot this fact with a Darwin Nunez that, in numbers, these are very close to those of Mohamed Salah, being that the irrefutable proof that makes the Uruguayan not only a good investment, but an elite striker who will compete to be an idol in the Reds.
