How much are you enjoying playing alongside Nunez?

"It always takes time to get used to new signings. We've all been through it ourselves, so it's no different. Maybe there's outside pressure on him in terms of the fee and everything like that, but to us it doesn't matter. People have come in on small fees, big fees – it doesn't matter. We know they have to take time to get used to our system, get used to our style of play, to get used to how we want them to play and things like that."

“He's adapting, he's getting fitter, he's getting stronger – like all of us are in pre-season – and he needs time to adapt. Today will do him a world of good. Today will give him a lot of confidence in terms of in front of goal and everything, which is obviously so important for a striker. So, delighted about that and we don't have any worries about him. But it's just about having a bit of time with him, having a bit of patience, and we've got that and hopefully the Liverpool fans have it as well.”

The perfect night

"Really difficult game for us in terms of preparation – flying on the day, doing stuff that we don't usually do. The manager always likes throwing one of them in in pre-season – coming a bit later to the stadium, trying to rush through your preparation and things like that. Obviously we have to deal with it and we know there's always one of them in pre-season, so we're a bit more accustomed to it now."

"First half was tough and obviously got an early goal and then maybe could've controlled it a wee bit better, had a couple more chances and things like that. But it was a good workout for us. Second half obviously was the Darwin show, which we're obviously delighted about. Getting off the mark and then adding another three, it's not too bad! But hopefully many more to come for him. A good workout for us, all in the legs, doesn't seem to be any injuries, things like that, so a good night all around."
