Salah left for the AFCON Cup with Egypt after Liverpool’s 4-2 win against Newcastle United in the first game of the year. Since then, Liverpool has not seemed to miss him, as the rest of the attackers have still scored many goals. Darwin Nunez scored three goals, while Jota scored four goals. Luis Diaz scored three goals, while Cody Gakpo scored one.

Even though he scored and assisted six total goals while Salah was out, Nunez received criticisms over his finishing in the game against Chelsea. Nunez hit a record to hit the woodwork the most time out of any Premier League player in one game, hitting it four times. Nunez missed a penalty by hitting the ball onto the right post. He previously had a 12/12 penalty record, which shows how unlucky he was against Chelsea. Nunez is the third top goal scorer for Liverpool in the Premier League behind Jota with eight and Salah with 14.

Jurgen Klopp defends Nunez by appreciating his effort on goal

Jurgen Klopp spoke about the misses Nunez had against Chelsea. Klopp hopes that the Uruguayan can convert them next time but isn’t stressed about his form. Klopp says, “That is outstanding football-wise, not being bothered about your own bad luck. Just staying in the game. I am more than happy with him [Darwin]. It’s an interesting story, I get that 100%. Breaking the record for [hitting] the crossbar is not a record you want to have, but if you have it, it just shows you are as close as it gets to scoring. That is exactly Darwin’s situation. He will score.”
