Thought he was good Monday night.
Can’t wait until he starts banging them in game after game 👊🏼
If what Jürgen is trying to do with Gakpo in a central role works and he truly becomes the Bobby replacement then it will be very interesting to see what happens with Nunez at LW.
He has been playing that position ever since Gakpo came here, but he was unfortunately reduced to a traditional winger's role as opposed to an LFC winger. This is mainly due to how poor we are all over the pitch as it translated to much less space for our forwards to run into. Now I imagine that once we start improving and Gakpo settles into that Bobby/false 9 role (and Bobby is back to speed), Nunez will suddenly find himself in much more space and we'll see much more diagonal runs from him as opposed to the darting but straight runs he's been doing the past month or so. We'll also see the TAA and Nunez connection become much more functional and potentially very lethal (you can imagine a classic Trent cross being met by an oncoming tall, strong and quick forward making a diagonal run from the left onto the center).
I think the derby was a glimpse of that. If it works Nunez will have the potential to become a very prolific forward
