Nunez became the centre figure after Liverpool's win over Fulham

Darwin Nunez has again become the subject of gossip following his failure to execute a golden opportunity against Fulham. However, there is an invisible positive side to it. The source of the titbits came from week 14 of the 2023/2024 Premier League on Sunday. The 24-year-old striker Nunez is plotted to be the spearhead when facing Fulham at Anfield. The Reds won the match dramatically after two consecutive goals scored in the 87th and 88th minutes ensured Liverpool won with a score of 4-3.

Nunez, who played the full 90 minutes, did not contribute directly to the four goals. He even wasted a golden opportunity in front of the Fulham goal. This opportunity appeared in the 53rd minute. At that time, Liverpool launched an attack from a quick positive transition process after securing Fulham’s corner kick.

So, Nunez and Salah became the centre of the counterattack. Salah kept the ball close to him, while the Uruguyan continued to advance to the right. Salah was waiting for Nunez's movement, then released a through ball to his partner. Unfortunately, Nunez's kick was too hard and upwards, so the ball hit the crossbar. Even so, there is an unseen side to Nunez that can be praised. He was indirectly involved in two crucial Liverpool goals in the final minutes of the match. In Liverpool's third goal (87'), Nunez perfectly blocked the ball with his chest, then rolled to Salah. From Salah, the ball was then set up for Endo to score a goal.

Even on the fourth goal (88'). Nunez was the one who kept the ball alive after Cody Gakpo's shot was saved. Thanks to Nunez, Trent Alexander-Arnold had time to get to the penalty box and put the ball into the goal. With these results, Liverpool narrowed Arsenal's points at the top of the standings. The Gunners have collected 33 points, while Liverpool has 31 points. Manchester City failed to gain points after being held to a 3-3 draw by Tottenham in a controversial match.
