Darwin Nunez showcased his ruthless finishing capabilities in the lead-up towards the World Cup for Liverpool, though looked far from his deadliest against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup.
The Uruguayan international had a fine array of goalscoring opportunities to take advantage of at the Etihad with one moment in the second-half the crowing example.
The former Benfica man raced toward the Sky Blues’ goal after being played in with a lovely through ball from Joe Gomez but dragged his effort wide once again from close range – a wasted effort that seemed to surprise Jurgen Klopp too as footage panned to the German head coach.
