Liverpool has a dreadful start to the season.
The Reds lost 3-2 to Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday evening and are now 14 points away from the league leaders.
Both Darwin Nunez and Roberto Firmino scored for Liverpool but a penalty goal from Bukayo Saka just 14 minutes before the final whistle sealed the win for Arteta’s men.
But Gary Neville claims Darwin Nunez was Liverpool’s best player on the pitch that evening.
‘I thought he [Nunez] was really good, even in the difficult parts of the game for Liverpool he was their best player, his runs were good,’ Neville said on the Gary Neville podcast.
‘Liverpool needed a centre forward. [Sadio] Mane leaving, Firmino, I think people who watch him far more than I do say he was dropping off a little bit, so they had to revitalise that front three.
‘They needed a centre forward, when they signed Nunez there was this comparison between [Erling] Haaland and Nunez. I remember the headlines around that time [after the Community Shield], we all should and look at us now three months later, but that was a debate.’
