‘He’ll be great’: BBC pundit Clinton Morrison says Liverpool striker has potential to become great

BBC pundit Clinton Morrison has claimed that Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez has the potential to be a great player in future.

The Anfield giants are dominating the PL with their brilliant performances since the beginning of the season.

Except for the one controversial loss against Tottenham Hotspurs, the team has not lost a single match in the league.

The defense of the Reds has failed quite a few times this season to defend the oppositions. However, the attack has always stepped up to make a comeback.

The Merseyside have showed incredible passion and character to collect 18 points from nine defeats. While most forwards have shown offensive prowess, the goals have dried up for Darwin Nunes.

People complain about him missing opportunities, but I’m more concerned if he doesn’t get opportunities, he gets in and that’s the main thing.

He’s causing problems and eventually the goals will start coming for him, he’s building up a little relationship with Salah too.”

The Uruguayan so far in this season has scored 7 goals and assisted them equal numbers of times. However, he scored his last goal for LFC back in November against Bournemouth in the EFL Cup.

Furthermore, his last goal in the PL was back in October when he scored against Nottingham Forest in a comfortable 3-0 victory.

Although his goals have dried up, he has not been completely silent, as he has continued to assist his teammates (stats via Transfermarkt).

Yes, the 24-year-old has had some horrific matches like the one against Luton Town, but he was also the hero of the glorious comeback in the Newcastle United match.

Even though the former Benfica man has not been very effective, he most certainly does not lack the quality to generate goals.

It would not be very surprising if Nunez starts scoring week in and week out in the second half of the season.
