Nunez is Anfield's new hero! Liverpool winners, losers and ratings as Darwin, Konate and Salah see off Napoli

Anfield has itself a new hero to worship, he wears a ponytail and he comes from Uruguay.

There may not be a lot that is predictable or orthodox about Darwin Nunez, but boy can he be effective. A player to excite, to get a crowd on its feet and a defence on its back foot.

A right old handful, as they say.

Nunez, belatedly, is starting to settle at Liverpool after his summer move from Benfica, and he took another big step forward on Tuesday night, emerging from the bench to score one goal and create another as Jurgen Klopp’s side finished the Champions League group stage with a morale-boosting 2-0 win over Napoli.

It wasn’t quite enough to secure top spot in Group A, but it was a much-needed result for Klopp after the misery of Saturday’s defeat here to Leeds United. European football, it seems, is their comfort blanket this season.

Liverpool left it late to secure this win, with Mohamed Salah striking five minutes from time to break the deadlock, before Nunez, whose header had led to the opener, tapped in a second with the last kick of the night.

The £64 million ($73m) man now has five goals in his last seven appearances, three in three in the Champions League, and the manner in which the Kop sang his name at the final whistle suggests he is already well on his way to becoming a firm favourite with his new club.

Here, he was the definition of an impact substitute.
