‘it’s difficult’ – Watch Arsene Wenger points to Darwin Nunez and Sadio Mane for reasons Liverpool have started slowly this season
The reds had planned to rebound from the end of the international break with a win from Brighton.
However, a draw has further stalled our season’s progress, and Arsene Wenger spoke out about the situation at Anfield.
The 72-year-old said on beIN Sports:
“It’s difficult to understand, they have the same core, the same type of game.
“They are less efficient at winning the ball back than before, less vertical as well and certainly Nunez at the moment hasn’t worked out for them, they’ve made a big investment and he’s sitting on the bench.
“They lost Mane who was a top player and a big game player, he had something that aggressive attitude, that determination in big games – ‘I will score no matter what happens and make it happen’.
“It’s difficult to measure how much that takes away but they miss something that they had before”.
Darwin Nunez’s position on the bench would undoubtedly signal that he isn’t yet producing, but it’s crucial to keep in mind that our No. 27 missed practice prior to the Premier League game since he arrived late from Uruguay duty.
Sadio Mane was always going to be difficult to replace, but Luis Diaz has succeeded in doing so.
It is now important to get the former Benfica player firing and starting matches in order to boost his confidence and accumulate more victories.
