Darwin Nunez’s incredible open goal miss vs Toulouse perfectly sums up his Liverpool career so far

Darwin Nunez’s incredible open goal miss vs Toulouse perfectly sums up his Liverpool career so far

Liverpool thrashed Toulouse at Anfield on Thursday night

Darwin Nunez stole the show as Liverpool thrashed French side Toulouse in the Europa League.

On Thursday night, Liverpool were hoping to continue their 100 per cent record in the Europa League as they welcomed Ligue 1 side Toulouse to Anfield.

The Reds were 1-0 up inside 10 minutes thanks to Diogo Jota but Thijs Dallinga stunned Anfield into silence in the 16th minute.

By halftime, Liverpool were 3-1 up thanks to Wataru Endo and Nunez.

Jurgen Klopp’s men added two more goals in the second period as Ryan Gravenberch and Mohamed Salah got on the scoresheet to seal a 5-1 win.

In what was the moment of the match, Uruguayan striker Nunez was put through by Jota.

The 24-year-old showed brilliant skill to get away from the defender and the goalkeeper, however, with the goal gaping, Nunez managed to hit the post.

Luckily for Nunez, Gravenberch arrived in the right place at the right time to pick up the rebound and score.

That passage of play pretty much sums up Nunez's Liverpool career, as he showed moments of brilliance and madness.

Speaking after the match, Klopp said: “He played incredible. Honestly, in this moment, I don’t think I could care less that he hits the post.

“Everything before was super-convincing, was absolutely clear, how he took the defender away, how he passed the goalie, it was a perfect situation.”

He added: “He played really good, the goal he scored, the situations he was involved, dropping into midfield, staying on the ball, all these kinds of things. There were a lot of good things.”

Liverpool will be back in Premier League action this weekend as they take on Nottingham Forest on Sunday afternoon.
