Darwin Nunez thrives in chaos, Ben Doak continues to ask questions - 5 things you missed from Liverpool vs Greuther Furth

Darwin Nunez thrives in chaos, Ben Doak continues to ask questions - 5 things you missed from Liverpool vs Greuther Furth

Here are five things you missed.

Liverpool took on Greuther Furth in a topsy-turvy pre-season friendly, that has given Jurgen Klopp plenty to think about.

Having led 1-0 at half-time, a frenetic second period saw Darwin Nunez put on a show in attack, and the Reds' defence capitulate. The game finished 4-4.

Liverpool now head to Singapore where they will play Bayern Munich and Leicester City in preparation for the upcoming campaign.

And the draw versus Furth will have provided plenty of food for thought for Klopp and his backroom team. Here are five talking points from the game.

Darwin Nunez thrives in chaos

While plenty of the Liverpool side baulked at the frenetic pace and general chaos of the second half, Nunez thrived.

The 24-year-old took both his goals with a composure that was rarely witnessed last term, while it took a point-blank save from the goalkeeper to deny the striker a second-half hat-trick.

Should every Premier League game be as intense as this, Nunez will have a brilliant season.

Ben Doak looks like the real deal

Plenty has been said of Ben Doak since the 17-year-old signed from Celtic for £600,000 last year, and after his first-half showing versus Furth, you can see why.

The winger was a constant menace down the right flank, delivering a performance that combined good direct running and clever link-up play with his overlapping full-back Conor Bradley.

Doak, who last season became the youngest Scot in Premier League history, is being touted as the player who will one day replace Salah. From this outing, he certainly looks ready to at least provide competition for the Egyptian next term.

Joel Matip’s difficult second-half

It was a poor showing from all the Liverpool back-four that came out for the second half, but Matip in particular looked poor.

The 31-year-old was dispossessed for one of Furth’s goals, looked ponderous on the ball and appeared to lack any kind of match sharpness.

It’s only pre-season, but with just a year left on his current deal, it may be an excellent time to cash in on the Cameroonian, who looks a shadow of his former self.

Midfield could be Cody Gakpo’s best position

Cody Gakpo had an impressive first half from midfield against Furth. The Dutchman was tidy in possession, found pockets of space well, and carried the ball forward confidently in moments.

Gakpo has also impressed at times on the flank and as a false-nine, but could the Netherlands international’s best position be from the middle of the park?

Luis Diaz set for massive season

Diaz missed the majority of the last campaign through injury, but this pre-season he has looked back to his electric best.

The Colombia international took his goal brilliantly, while he looked sharp throughout the first half.

The Reds reportedly intend to reject any offers for Diaz this summer amid interest from Al Hilal, who are willing to pay around €50million for the 26-year-old.

The club clearly believe Diaz can play a key role in his side next term, and based on today, they may be right.
