Player to watch – Darwin Nunez

Darwin Nunez may well feel that he owes the Liverpool fans a few goals this weekend after he failed to take his chances in the Merseyside derby and Liverpool ended up losing the game 2-0.

Nunez has been a frustrating figure for many Liverpool fans since joining the club as he clearly has the talent but seems to waste more chances than he converts. Adapting to English football can take time and next season could be make or break for the Uruguay international.

Nunez needs a good performance following his derby disaster

The 24-year-old has improved on his last campaign though, where he scored nine times in 29 Premier League appearances, with the former Benfica man netting 11 times in 32 games so far this season. We're backing Nunez to play much better against the Hammers on Saturday in one of four games remaining that Liverpool simply have to win.
