Darwin Nunez is expected to quickly recover his goal-scoring form at Anfield, according to teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold.
The pricey summer acquisition has scored ten goals in 23 games this season, but many analysts have questioned if Darwin Nunez is capable of leading the line for a top team like Liverpool because he has missed more “big chances” than any other Premier League player.
Despite the worrying numbers, Alexander-Arnold was unwavering in his belief that Darwin Nunez will eventually start scoring a lot of goals.
“If I’m honest, that chemistry and understanding has been there early doors this season,” he told Sky Sports.
“It’s so easy when you look at it, you think we’ve had one goal together all season and maybe it’s like the wavelength but if you watch some games, you watch the chances created, I’ve been putting balls into him from early on in the season, we just haven’t been able to score from them.
“He’s a player that it’s easy to write him off, he’s not scoring goals but he’s getting into areas and places where he’s able to hurt opposition, that’s all you can ask.
“When the goals do start coming, we believe they will, no one here is thinking about that, we’re all behind him, supporting him, it’s always good to see him on the scoresheet but as long as the team win that’s all that what anyone cares about.”
Nunez started the season as a left-sided attacker while Roberto Firmino was in outstanding form in the center, but the Brazilian’s injury has left a gap at the team’s central attack that Darwin Nunez has so far found it difficult to fill.
Despite the fact that Nunez is currently third on Liverpool’s scoring lists, trailing only Firmino and Mohamed Salah, Alexander-Arnold feels optimistic about Nunez’s future ascent.
