Dippers trying to make out like Nunez did something amazing. He scored and it was a decent goal but its laid on a plate for him. He also completely fluffed an identical situation just prior to the goal trying the same flick when he could easily have put his foot through the ball with a bit of spin and buried it and just before that he had a glorious chance that he could have buried or laid off for a tap in and he did neither, passing to the only defender in his way instead. Then for their second, he totally balls'd up a simple touch and finish, very fortunate Salah was also there.

So yeah he scored one but its no exaggeration to say he should have scored 4 in the short time he was on the pitch. I guarantee Mane bangs in those chances and Liverpool somehow win that game 3-2. He's going to score a lot of goals because of liverpools relentless percentage football of cross after cross but he's not on the level of Mane and that's already cost them points.
With the goal he missed the kick entirely, but it bounced off Adarabioyo, back onto him and went in. Complete fluke from an air shot.

Hope they enjoyed their 24 hours of fame last week , but come the end of the season they will be wishing to swap a pointless Commnunity Shield victory for three points at Fulham , drawn games cost them last season and it will this season. The midfield that finished the Fulham game was Henderson , Elliot & Milner , none of them would make our bench.

It was a shocking finish for the goal. Cocked one up just before. Didnt learn from it, did exactly the same thing again but got lucky as the defenders clearance hit him and went in. You wont see a flukier goal all season. The “assist” was a bad first touch that luckily went straight to Salah.

Sterling type level stuff
