Liverpool bos Klopp details role for 2-goal Nunez

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp detailed Darwin Nunez’s role in victory over Southampton.

Nunez scored twice for the 3-1 win.

Klopp revealed: “The first half was really good and the second half is not a half where we win the football Oscar for us. We made a lot of mistakes in the second half. First half was really good. So, we did everything what Southampton didn’t want us to do, let me say it like this. So, used the speed of Mo and Darwin, we used the spaces we create with the speed in between the lines, we used our football skills; the goals how we set it up. So, the first was a set-piece – but then [a] sensational pass from Harvey but the movement from Darwin [was] really important.

“So, how we said, in the system we play Darwin has to defend the left wing, we cannot change that, but when he’s offensive then it’s only for balls in behind the wing [he] might be in position, but in all situations he has to be in the centre.

: That’s where he was in that moment with the third goal as well. So, great play. And that was the main problem actually that we didn’t do that in the second half anymore. I think the first ball we played in behind in the second half, that’s it.”
