Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness has leapt to the defence of Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez and thinks the summer signing from Benfica will come good at Anfield. And he also believes the Reds still have a stronger forward line than bitter rivals Manchester United, despite the fine recent form of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial
Nunez has split opinion since arriving on Merseyside. The Uruguayan international has scored five goals in 12 matches so far in the Premier League, but has failed to hit the back of the net in his last three appearances after missing a whole host of clear-cut chances.
Rashford, on the other hand, has been in scintillating form for the Red Devils. He has bagged in each of his three matches since returning from the World Cup, and grabbed the winner in the 1-0 victory over Wolves on Saturday despite being dropped to the bench after oversleeping and missing a team meeting.
And Martial is also showing big signs of improvement, with hopes that he will finally live up to his potential at Old Trafford. Despite this, Souness is far from convinced by the duo, and worries whether the goals will continue to flow following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
