Shearer convinced Liverpool striker Nunez now adapting to Klopp system

Former England captain Alan Shearer is being won over by Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez.

Nunez scored twice in victory over Southampton.

Such an impressive display led to Nunez being selected by Shearer – the Premier League’s all-time top-goalscorer – in his Team of the Week, adding to the Man of the Match accolade he claimed for his showing on Saturday.

“Crowned an impressive display with a first-half brace,” said Shearer, in his weekly Premier League column.

“He is adapting brilliantly to Klopp’s new system.”
