Diogo Jota expects to see ‘more proof’ of improvement in Darwin Nunez against Rangers tomorrow. Liverpool travel to Ibrox.
Diogo Jota believes we’ll all see ‘more proof’ of improvement in Darwin Nunez when Liverpool take on Rangers tomorrow. The Uruguayan started the Reds’ last two games, scoring against Arsenal.
Obviously, he started really well and people were starting to think his adaptation was never a problem,” Jota told a press conference on Tuesday. “But maybe it takes a few more games for him to get to that level that he showed us – and everyone – last year.
“And with the run of games that he’s having, he’s already scored and he’s finding himself in a better position. And people in the squad are understanding his game better.
“It’s good for everyone and tomorrow will be more proof of that, I hope.”
Darwin Nunez improvement
Nunez is clicking in the 4-4-2 formation – there’s little doubt about that. He looks dynamic and much easier to play with, given there’s less focus on him dropping deep.
Instead, the Uruguayan can constantly run the channels, looking to punish defenders looking to step up. That worked to a great effect against Rangers, who conceded chance after chance to Nunez. Only Alan McGregor kept them in it.
And Nunez earned great reviews on Sunday, too. Gary Neville and Danny Murphy both saw him as the real positive for Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp enjoyed his performance, too. As Jota says, it’s about making sure the rest of the team clicks with him – and the fac that Jota sees that is an exciting little update.
Nunez is growing at Liverpool and improving. It’s now a regular thing that we see more and more with every game and there should be more to come against Rangers.
We don’t expect him to play the full 90 minutes but there’s little doubt that Nunez will be the main target as Liverpool attack tomorrow.
