Darwin Nunez could copy Luis Suarez to hand Liverpool major injury boost vs Arsenal

Darwin Nunez could copy Luis Suarez to hand Liverpool major injury boost vs Arsenal

The Uruguayan is a question mark for the Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium

Question marks surround if Darwin Nunez could feature for Liverpool or not due to a foot injury for this weekend's Premier League clash against Arsenal - but could follow a technique used by Luis Suarez.

The Anfield side travel to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon as the Premier League leaders head to the capital to take on the third placed Gunners.

Liverpool are currently five points clear at the top of the table, and could extend that should they beat Arsenal and second placed Manchester City take on Brentford away on Monday evening.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Nunez is a doubt for the clash after leaving Anfield following Wednesday evening's 4-1 victory over Chelsea in a protective boot due to having his foot being stepped on.

He said: "I don’t know if Darwin is available or not.

"Because Darwin had, after 20 minutes, somebody stepped on his foot. It was very painful after the game.

"He only took [his] boot off after the game, because he didn’t want to see before. He knew there was something.

"So, he left the stadium in a boot - and it was not a football boot."

Should Nunez not be available for Liverpool, it would be a big blow for the Anfield side as they aim to maintain their advantage at the summit of the top flight and a big boost for Mikel Arteta's outfit.

Liverpool will of course be hoping that Nunez can feature in the encounter - and there is a way he could be involved should he do a clever trick one of his countrymen once undertook while at Anfield to help play through the pain.

Former Liverpool star Raheem Sterling revealed that Luis Suarez once wore boots that was a size bigger than normal as he had a swollen ankle, and ended up scoring a hat-trick.

Speaking to The Times, Sterling said: "I'll never forget the day. He had a ridiculously swollen ankle.

“Anybody else would have said: ‘No, today’s not my day'.

“Suarez took the injection. His ankle was like a ball. I thought it’s not normal. He had to wear Stevie’s (Steven Gerrard) boots, which were probably two sizes too big for him and he went out and bagged a hat-trick. Nobody else would have done that.”

If Nunez does that to help play with a swollen foot and produces a similar result, not too many Liverpool fans would complain, you'd suspect.
