Domino’s Pizza troll Darwin Nunez as alarming stats emerge after Liverpool striker misses keeper and goal disallowed in loss to Brentford
Domino’s may have lost customers in the Merseyside area after trolling Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez on Twitter.
Nunez was the name on everyone’s lips on Monday night as the Uruguayan had another stench as the Reds suffered a 3-1 loss to Brentford.
Opinion on Nunez has remained divided since his record £85million transfer to Anfield in the summer, and his performance against the Bees will have done him no favours.
Watching him play, it’s clear that Nunez has everything you’d expect from a top striker – pace, strength, height, good movement – everything but finishing.
Although never far from action and a voluntary worker for the team, Nunez was bought by Liverpool to score goals and it was exactly the department that let him down.
The 23-year-old’s name was trending on social media all Monday night, from the time he missed an outright keeper in less than ten minutes at Brentford’s Community Stadium – and Domino’s were quick to join the stack.
Guilty of a shocking miss in Liverpool’s lucky win over Leicester – won by two own goals – Nunez was against Brentford again as he rounded the goalkeeper but, with the goal at his mercy, fired the ball directly at Ben Mee who had rushed. back to defend.
Football stats accounts didn’t read well for the leader on Monday night, highlighting that Nunez has missed more big chances than any other Premier League player this season – 15.
He also attempted the most shots in his first five Premier League away games – 23 – but only converted two, with a conversion rate of 9%.
Nunez then thought he redeemed himself with a good finish to make it 2-1, only to have his strike ruled out for offside.
He just can’t take a break right now.
However, he still has the backing of Jurgen Klopp, who compared him to Robert Lewandowski, while others still compare him to Andy Carroll.
Only time will tell which comparison turns out to be the most accurate.
“There are a lot of similarities [between Nunez and Lewandowsk]to be honest,” Klopp said in a recent interview, talking about his former Borussia Dortmund striker who scored just eight goals in his debut season for the German club.
“Yeah, I think Lewi would tell the same story. We had filming sessions where he didn’t finish a single one.
“We had bets all the time for €10 where I said, ‘If you score more than 10 times I’ll pay you €10 and if you don’t you have to pay me’. My pocket was full of money .
“When I started playing Lewandowski, journalists asked me why [Lucas] Barrios wasn’t playing – he had scored 16 goals that season and was the No.9 in our team.
“It’s about staying calm. When you see potential, stay calm. And I think we all agree that the potential [with Nunez] is so obvious.
” Is everything alright ? No… but everything is coming. You do it like that, the next time you do it like that. I had this situation with Lewi but it’s not just Lewi. It is the obvious comparison. The team is completely convinced and that’s really cool.
Many Liverpool fans have also defended their new leader pointing out that even Luis Suarez has fewer goals [eight] of his first 21 Liverpool appearances than Nunez.
So maybe we are judging too soon.
