Compilation of all of Darwin Nunez misses goes viral after Brentford failure

Compilation of all of Darwin Nunez misses goes viral after Brentford failure

Nunez was off form for Liverpool once again, as they lost to Brentford, and now there's a compilation of all his misses for the Reds.

Darwin Nunez had another night to forget, as Liverpool were beaten by Brentford on Monday night, and now a video package highlighting all his misses has gone viral.

Last summer, as Liverpool managed to bag themselves Nunez, ahead of rivals for his signature such as Manchester United, there was a lot of excitement.

The striker had scored 34 goals for Benfica in the previous season, including twice against his new club in the Champions League.

There was even talk that he would push Erling Haaland for the Golden Boot, in what was being lined up as the newest rivalry between star players.

Only it's not exactly turned out that way for the Uruguayan, whose performances have been described as 'chaotic' on more than one occasion.

Whilst the 23-year-old has scored five times in the Premier League, he is lagging some 16 goals behind Haaland and it's his misses that are attracting more attention.

Against Leicester City it was his miss that actually led to Wout Faes' disastrous second own goal, as last season's league runners-up came away with a 2-1 win.

However, against Brentford on Monday, it was back to disaster for the former Benfica star, with even Domino's pizza taking a pop at him.

With his latest miss, as he rounded Brentford goalkeeper David Raya only to strike the ball at a defender rather than into the gaping net, someone put together a compilation of all Nunez's misses this season.

"He might beat the record for the most big changes missed this season," one fan said, with another replying, "He probably will, think he has 16 right now and the record is 25."

"I'm so shocked that this man isn't a Chelsea player," another added, and he has a point considering how badly the Blues forward signings usually go.

One fan was so shocked by the amount of misses he replied, "How long has this guy been at Liverpool to have missed this many big chances? Are all these from just 5 months?"

When all his clauses are met, Nunez will reportedly be the club's most expensive signing, and another fan thinks it's value for money, for his own entertainment, joking, "For footballing reasons he'd probably be worth £5 million, for entertainment £80 million."

And another opined, "His shooting technique is horrid. Having a 2 min comp just off misses halfway through the szn is spinning me."

Some fans were sticking up for the Liverpool star, claiming he would come good and that it was a positive he was getting into position.

He did give some hope with a brilliant finish against Brentford, only for the goal to be disallowed, as he was narrowly offside, but there was also another horrible miss that went well wide of the goal.

Despite the big price tag, his manager, Jurgen Klopp bemoaned the fact that his team couldn't keep in touch with the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea when it came to spending.

Even Liverpool fans weren't happy with the German, pointing out that he'd spent money on Cody Gakpo when he'd admitted last summer they needed another midfielder.

The manager was also annoyed after the loss to Brentford, blaming the decision to allow the Bees third goal of the game on the referee.

He also claimed that the west Londoners "stretched the rules" at set pieces, the mode of one of their goals but also where they had another two disallowed.
