CL: Jurgen Klopp praises Darwin Nunez’s performance in Rangers win

Darwin Nunez

The 2-0 victory over Rangers by Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday night left Jurgen Klopp impressed by Darwin Nunez, according to the Reds manager.

In an effort to rediscover their rhythm, the Reds switched to a four-man attack with all of Nunez, Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, and Diogo Jota.

Although the home team dominated at Anfield, both of their goals—a free-kick by Trent Alexander-Arnold and a penalty by Mohamed Salah—came from dead-ball situations.

Klopp was happy with the way his attack worked together, and he predicted Nunez, who missed a few good chances but was a constant threat to Rangers, would score soon if he keeps playing at his current level.

“The way the boys moved up front today together I thought was extremely, extremely good for only one session working on it, to be honest,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website.

“We never did it before, we had now one session with a low intensity because we only played recently. So, you just see how good a striker [Nunez] is to be constantly in these situations. I think everybody saw tonight that this [scoring goals] will happen, so all good.”

Since beginning the group stage of the Champions League with an abject 4-1 loss at Napoli, Liverpool has now won both of its games.

On Sunday, they travel to top-of-the-table Arsenal to continue their Premier League schedule.
