(Video) Watch superb fan footage of Darwin Nunez’s filthy Premier League debut goal

Posted by

Despite Liverpool being held to a disappointing 2-2 draw at Craven Cottage yesterday, Darwin Nunez got his Premier League career off to a great start after registering a goal and an assist as the Reds twice came from behind against Fulham.

The Uruguayan was named as a substitute but entered the fray early in the second half as Jurgen Klopp’s side searched for creativity and a route back into the game.

The 23-year-old instantly began stretching the Fulham backline and began making things happen with his runs in behind and clever movement.

Nunez made it 1-1 just after the hour mark in the capital after a nice move from Klopp’s men.

Fellow substitute Harvey Elliott knocked the ball down the right flank for Mo Salah who then crossed for the Reds No. 27 and he produced a delightful flicked finish with his trailing leg.

He’d attempted a similar finish just minutes earlier but was prevented by Marek Rodak in the hosts’ net.

On a disappointing afternoon for the Reds, there were plenty of positives to take from the Uruguay international’s performance.
