“He can be back”- Jurgen Klopp answers if Darwin Nunez will feature for Liverpool vs Crystal Palace



Jurgen Klopp remains hopeful that Darwin Nunez will return for Liverpool vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

As confirmed by the club’s official website, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp retains hope that star striker Darwin Nunez will return to action in the midweek Premier League fixture against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Reds welcome the Midlands outfit to Anfield in a series of two home games that are a must-win in our efforts to secure a top-four finish. Manchester United will arrive on Merseyside next weekend in a tie that could have a great impact on both teams’ fortunes.

Liverpool have now kept three clean sheets in the Premier League in a row but the lack of cutting-edge upfront has largely poured water on those efforts. The Reds were unable to take their chances against Crystal; Palace at the weekend and had to settle for a frustrating point.

One man missing from the trip to Selhurst Park was Darwin Nunez, the club’s ace striker. The Uruguayan has been steadily finding his feet on Merseyside and is arguably the Reds’ most difficult player to defend against.

He showcased that against Real Madrid, where he opened the scoring on the night, leaving Thibaut Courtois flat-footed. In many ways, we missed the same ingenuity against Palace.

Klopp admitted after the trip to Palace that Nunez was still suffering the aftereffects of a shoulder injury picked up at Newcastle. While he was cleared to play Real, he, unfortunately, picked up another knock in the game.

Klopp went on to add that the 23-year-old remains in contention to feature midweek should he recover. Having him back alongside a resurgent Cody Gakpo and Mohamed Salah will certainly boost Liverpool’s chances of defeating Wolves.

“Hopefully he can be [back] in midweek again.”

Momentum is key for the Res in the next 15 matchdays and securing maximum points should be the aim. With Nunez in the side, that task certainly becomes a whole lot easier.

Wolves have got the better of us already this season, courtesy of a 3-0 win at the Molineux. Hopefully, with Nunez back in the side, we can repay that favour at home. With Man United next, there is every need for us to go into the clash on the back of three points.
