Report: Liverpool coaching staff absolutely delighted with what 23-year-old did to Tottenham duo last weekend
Jurgen Klopp’s men picked up an impressive 2-1 win in north London last Sunday after a first-half brace from Mohamed Salah.
Nunez was causing Antonio Conte’s side problems on the left-hand side as he found himself in huge amounts of space on numerous occasions.
The 23-year-old was making intelligent runs in behind Royal, which often allowed him to run at an exposed Dier.
The Uruguayan set-up Salah for his first goal of the afternoon and put in an impressive display. And Liverpool’s coaches were impressed that he managed to cause the Spurs duo serious problems.
Liverpool coaching staff delighted with Nunez
The Athletic reports that Nunez has improved his movement off the ball due to his hard-work in training.
Coaching staff at Liverpool were delighted by how he exploited the space behind Royal last Saturday, causing Dier plenty of problems.
It seemed like part of the game-plan from Klopp last Saturday to make the most of the space left behind Dier and Royal.
Spurs’ right-hand side of their defence has been a weakness for them this season, particularly in the absence of Cristian Romero.
Conte’s side did come on strong in the second-half as they aimed to mount a comeback, but Liverpool held on for an important three points.
Nunez has improved dramatically over the past few weeks and is beginning to show why Liverpool signed him.
The former Benfica man bagged a brace against Southampton on Saturday and seems to be finding his feet at Anfield.
Klopp will hope that Nunez performs well at the World Cup and continues to build his confidence ahead of returning to action for Liverpool on Boxing Day.
