“He was the real difference to Nunes. He came and gave them power. That’s exactly what they needed. His moves were very good. “He caused Fulham real problems in the second half.”He added: “He brings the chaos that Jurgen Klopp loves and the fans will too!”Darwin Nunes, 24, finished the game with assists on both of Liverpool’s goals.

The second assist in particular was excellent and Cody Gakpo’s huge miss was easily ended. Nunes was also unlucky not to score. That’s because Bernd Leno made three saves, including a wonderful stop from his feet.
