'Impressive': Alan Shearer raves about Liverpool star who is 'adapting brilliantly' to what Klopp wants

Alan Shearer has picked Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez in his latest team of the week and believes the Uruguayan is adapting brilliantly.

The expensive summer signing has taken some time to get going but seems to have really found his feet in the last few weeks. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is overseeing a change in formation and style at the club. Nunez, it seems, is going to be key in that change.

And including Nunez in his team of the week for the Premier League’s official website, Shearer believes Nunez deserves credit.

“Crowned an impressive display with a first-half brace. He is adapting brilliantly to Klopp’s new system,” Shearer wrote when including Nunez in his team of the week.

Despite some looking at Nunez’s start to life in Liverpool bleakly, the Uruguayan actually has scored nine times in just 18 games. Overshadowed somewhat by Erling Haaland over in Manchester, Nunez is slowly going about his business in Liverpool.

A strong World Cup from Nunez could well see him come back even more in the mood than before. Liverpool, meanwhile, will simply be hoping Nunez returns with no injury.

TBR’s View: Nunez is doing the business for Liverpool

There is no doubt Darwin Nunez seems to have turned a corner and Alan Shearer recognises that in his selection here.

Nunez has been outstanding in recent games. His pace and power are frightening and if he can harness those assets and become a more well-rounded player, he’ll be brilliant for the Reds.

Liverpool know they rolled the dice a bit when they spent so big on Nunez. But so far, it looks like good business.

Sure, there’ll be ups and downs for Nunez in a Liverpool shirt. However, on the whole, he’ll be pleased with his start and will look to kick on when football returns in December.
