Liverpool forward Darwin Nunez at risk of two-game ban which could see him miss crucial Man City clash

Liverpool forward Darwin Nunez at risk of two-game ban which could see him miss crucial Man City clash

Nunez is walking a suspension tightrope.

Darwin Nunez is walking a suspension tightrope with their a possibility the Liverpool forward could miss his side's vital clash with Manchester City.

Nunez has amassed eight yellow cards already this season and two more would result in a two-match suspension for the in-form Uruguayan.

Liverpool already have plenty of selection issues of late, with Diogo Jota, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alisson Becker all currently out of action through injury.

Despite being withdrawn at half-time of Liverpool's recent 4-1 win over Brentford this weekend, Nunez's fitness is being monitored by staff at Melwood on a 'day-to-day basis'.

However, Liverpool fans should also be concerned given the 24-year-old's disciplinary record this season has often caused them issues.

In 37 appearances in all competitions, Nunez has been shown a yellow card 10 times and was sent off against Crystal Palace back in August 2022.

With a hectic schedule to come for Klopp's side, losing another option in attack would come as something of a hammer blow.

Mohamed Salah recently returned from Africa Cup of Nations duty to find the net against the Bees, but it is Nunez who also continues to share a healthy burden of the weight in attack too.

Liverpool's Darwin Nunez is a doubt for the Premier League clash against Arsenal. (

"It is just crazy that he creates that many," Klopp told reporters recently, following his side's recent 4-1 win over Chelsea. "Imagine for a second he would take them all... the numbers would be absolutely insane to the extent where you wouldn’t understand it anymore, so it’s normal.

"For us it is important because we scored four goals, who cares if we could have scored a fifth or a sixth? It is really not important.

"We need to win football games – and he will score. He scored already.

"Then setting up in a really important moment the fourth goal, because 3-2 or 4-1 is a big difference, that makes him really the player he is for us. The rest will come, definitely."
