The Liverpool Player of the Month award for November was not canceled as originally thought.
That’s because earlier today, Liverpool announced the winner of said award.
It was announced on the Reds’ official website on November 15th that Darwin Nunez had won the Standard Chartered Player of the Month award.
The Uruguay international scored three goals and set up another in four games across all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side last month.
The former Benfica hitman is warming up on Merseyside following a subdued first few weeks as a Liverpool player, it has to be said.
In what amounted to a rotten start to his English career after an £85 million summer transfer from Portugal, Nunez was sent off on his Premier League debut against Crystal Palace.
But as he proved in the Champions League last season, against Liverpool, this is a massive talent and Klopp will be delighted to see him go from strength to strength.
Thing is, he’ll also have to keep getting better.
The injury to Diogo Jota has been extended until Febuary, and Luis Diaz has just had a setback on his return from injury.
When Liverpool enters the second half of the season, Nunez and Mohamed Salah will bear the bulk of the goalscoring responsibility.
