Liverpool fans back Darwin Nunez to start vs. Rangers – 95% vote yes – Liverpool FC

It’s been a month since Darwin Nunez made his last start, and after three games off the bench, fans feel he should be back against the Rangers.

Since making his £85m move from Benfica, becoming the club’s most expensive signing in history, Núñez has only made two competitive starts for Liverpool.

They technically returned back to back, with the Uruguayan returning directly to the team after a three-match suspension, starting against Crystal Palace and Everton.

But the striker is flattered to cheat when asked, and with Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino impressing in his place, Nunez has been left with cameo appearances in the last three games.

After a total of 53 minutes on the pitch against Napoli, Ajax and Brighton, concerns could be raised about how the No. 27 reclaims his place.

However, Rangers’ visit in the Champions League on Tuesday night, with Liverpool under the spotlight at Anfield, could provide an ideal opportunity to test Nunez again.

At the time of writing, 95 per cent of voters agree that is the case, following a poll on This Is Anfield’s Twitter timeline.

The general consensus is that there would be no better time to start Nunez than at home against the bottom of Group A:

Many expect a change in formation to spark an upturn in Liverpool’s fortunes, with Nunez leading the line in a 4-2-3-1:

However, there is no guarantee that Nunez will start with the atmosphere when Rangers head to Anfield for the first time in a competitive game, which could add to the pressure on a player under fire.

Firmino scored twice in a 3-3 draw with Brighton at the weekend, while Jota assisted on his return to the starting line-up against Ajax, with Jurgen Klopp not short of options up front.

But amid a relentless streak of matches, nine of which will be played in October alone, there must come a time when Nunez gets a chance to claim his place again.
