Last night, as Liverpool fell to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup, Jamie Carragher mentioned Darwin Nunez
Nunez was uneven in his performance against City. He played well overall, but he missed critical chances, causing the Reds to lose the game.
Carragher, on the other hand, elected not to go after Nunez. Instead, after the game, he talked on Sky Sports and argued that Nunez will have significant moments because of his sheer engagement.
Nunez will be a success at Liverpool, according to TBR.
This season, Jamie Carragher will most certainly mention Darwin Nunez more than once. And he’ll probably be both frustrated and impressed by him.
Nunez has looked the part since his arrival at Anfield. On his day, and as he demonstrated last night at times, he can outrun any defense in the league.
However, the vital aspect of finishing must be improved. He is grasping at opportunities at times, and the casual fan will ultimately judge him based on his aims.
Jurgen Klopp challenges VAR decision following confusion in Liverpool defeat to Man City
VAR was not used at the Etihad Stadium as Manchester City defeated Liverpool in the Carabao Cup
As Liverpool’s era as Carabao Cup holders came to an end, Jurgen Klopp questioned the decision not to employ VAR.
The Reds’ season began after the World Cup break with a 3-2 loss against Manchester City in a thrilling fourth-round match on Thursday evening.
VAR is not used in the Carabao Cup until the semi-final stage, according to new rules for the 2019/20 season.
While Klopp acknowledges that the technology cannot be used in the early rounds, the Reds manager believes it was wrong for it to remain dormant at the Etihad, with referee David Coote and his colleagues making a number of contentious calls during the game.
“If we have VAR, the officials are used to VAR, and then you tell them no… it appeared in a handful of scenarios that they were waiting for or believing VAR was still there, but there was nothing,” he explained.
“There were a handful of offside rulings where everybody in the stadium was confident it was offside, I don’t know if it was in the end or not, and we couldn’t watch it back.
“It makes sense if you play a competition and everyone has VAR, why shouldn’t you? I understand that in earlier rounds, it may not be possible at all levels. But it’s City versus Liverpool, and I believe all of the technical equipment is present, so why not use it?”
