Darwin Nunez would have had Liverpool fans biting their nails ahead of the return of domestic football after the Uruguayan was spotted limping off the training ground.

La Celeste are set to take on South Korea for their opening group stage clash at the Qatar World Cup with the Reds’ No.27 in blistering form.
With seven goals from his last 10 games, we’ll be hoping to see the former Benfica hitman pick up where he left off and hopefully keep the efforts flowing in time to help lead the charge back up to the top four spots.

With Diogo Jota potentially set to be out of action until February, we can certainly ill afford to lose another top attacker ahead of the second-half of the season.
