Nunez is anticipated to fill the vacuum created by Sadio Mane’s departure after moving to Anfield from Benfica earlier this summer for a cost of up to £85 million. After scoring in his brief appearance at the King Power Stadium, Merson thinks Liverpool’s 23-year-old forward should start the team’s first Premier League game.
The ex-Arsenal player stated that “I would start Darwin Nunez in this game.“
“I only say that because this is not a game against one of the big six, and you know that Liverpool are going to dominate.“
“Nunez needs to play in games where you know he’s going to score, and this is a great game for him to make his Premier League debut.”
The upcoming Liverpool Star Darwin Nunez
Nunez has the striking prowess to succeed right away in the Premier League after scoring 34 goals in 41 appearances for Benfica in all competitions last season. Roberto Firmino might start this match because it is anticipated that the young prodigy will need some more time to adjust to English football. On the red half of Merseyside, the summer has mostly been one of continuity, with Nunez basically replacing Mane as the only substantial alteration to Klopp’s team.
Young players Calvin Ramsay and Fabio Carvalho’s moves from Aberdeen and Fulham, respectively, appear to be long-term moves, while supporting cast members like Neco Williams, Takumi Minamino, and Divock Origi have all left. The core of the club from the previous season that came close to completing the quadruple is still in place, and Klopp is anticipated to challenge City for the crown once more.
