has praised ’s performance following Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Fulham on Saturday.

Liverpool went behind on two occasions at Craven Cottage following goals from Aleksandar Mitrovic but Nunez and ensured that Klopp’s side escaped with a point.

Nunez, an £85 million summer signing from Benfica, started his first Premier League game on the bench but was brought on in the 51st minute to help Liverpool’s lacklustre attack.

And the Uruguay international delivered a bright performance in Liverpool’s attack and could’ve come away with more than one goal to his name.

‘In a situation like that when we don’t really find a way in front of the goal, you need this extra determination, and the difference as well, it makes it difficult for the opponent, obviously,’ Klopp said of Nunez.

‘A great goal, could have scored another one as well, maybe two, crazy. So, he is involved in a lot of goalscoring situations, that’s really cool and that’s where we have to bring him up.

‘Now imagine we would play good, how often we could set him up then? Because that was obviously our main problem, that our delivery was most of the time not good enough, and that was alright, we had massive chances, it’s crazy.

‘If I would watch it back, if you watch highlights, you could misunderstand this game completely because we had a few really good situations, but between these situations we just didn’t play well.’

When asked about Luis Diaz’s performance, Klopp said: ‘Lucho is a great player, a fantastic player, but today he had a massive chance, super chance.

‘For offensive players on a day like this, it’s really not easy because they defend massively from how they get set up, how the deliveries are, and we didn’t play well enough to bring them in the right moments.

‘But when we were there, then you can see immediately how good Lucho is, how one-one, crossbar or post, I don’t know exactly, but close.

‘Yeah, brilliant player but he can play better than today, like all the South Americans.’
