The £64m striker made an excellent impression throughout final weekend’s Group Protect defeat of Manchester Metropolis when he entered the fray on the hour mark – he earned the Reds a penalty after which obtained his title on scoresheet in damage time with a well-taken header.

However regardless of hitting the bottom operating for the Reds, the German tactician hinted that the Uruguay worldwide could need to as soon as once more accept a spot on the bench when Liverpool start their Premier League marketing campaign away to Fulham tomorrow.

“Darwin is prepared, however does that imply he has to begin? I don’t know,” Klopp stated (as quoted by the Liverpool Echo). “We now have totally different choices and that’s what we are going to use and Darwin wants time to get used to a whole lot of issues, however he’s already an actual assist.

“He’s fully settled. He stated himself he was very nervous to start with and I sympathise with that loads, it’s regular. However he settled fairly rapidly as a result of all of the gamers, not solely the Spanish audio system, and that was very useful and he feels at house after a brief interval.

“He had an actual impression within the first last we may have performed however the work won’t cease and he’s in the absolute best place.”

Bobby Firmino, who began final week’s conflict with Metropolis and is predicted to begin down the center of Klopp’s front-three if Nunez is known as instead at Craven Cottage, is believed to have struck up an incredible friendship already with our new No. 27.

However regardless of the pair getting on nicely, the previous Borussia Dortmund boss was eager to emphasize that the 2 gamers are ‘fully totally different gamers’ and we due to this fact shouldn’t count on to see similarities of their recreation.

“They’re fully totally different gamers, they like one another and speak loads,” Klopp added. “They’re each from South America, each offensive gamers, can play totally different positions – what can they be taught?

“Earlier than I arrived, individuals in all probability thought Bobby was not the participant he’s. He’s an distinctive participant, has his absolute personal means of enjoying soccer. Think about Bobby would attempt to play like Darwin or the opposite means round, a bit unusual and never crucial. As an individual, sure, however as a participant I’m unsure.”

Everyone knows that our No. 9 mastered the false-nine function whereas Nunez is extra of an ‘out-and-out’ striker.

He’ll play on the final man and can need the ball in behind which means we could also be set for a slight tweak in ways this season.

No stark variations had been noticeable in opposition to the Citizen’s final week however we did look in management proper all through the sport and it was nice to see how we reacted to the Sky Blues equalising late on.

We stored our heads up, stored enjoying soccer and finally netted one other two targets earlier than the full-time whistle.

We’re as soon as once more wanting ahead to the brand new marketing campaign, let’s hope we may be as aggressive this season as we had been final
