Ian Wright believes that Liverpool's Darwin Nunez is "playing sensationally"
"He is doing everything except scoring."
The former Arsenal hero is very much a part of the strikers union here, and can't help but back his fellow goal-getters, so it's no different when it comes to Nunez.
The Uruguayan striker played very well against Everton in the Merseyside derby, setting up Mo Salah for the opener and showing real attacking prowess.
However, his goal ratio hasn't been what's expected of him, and despite getting lots of chances, the flying forward has been missing more than he's been scoring.
“I feel it is going to happen for him as he is playing sensationally," Wright told Wrighty's House Podcast.
"The goal he set up for Salah [against Everton] and his all-round energetic pace and output, he is doing everything except scoring.
“I can’t put my finger on why someone with such good technical ability, it’s not even a case of needing to slow down before he shoots, it just doesn’t seem like it is going to go in for him at the moment.
“The fact he is not scoring as frequently as he would like to score, you have to get yourself in a situation where you can hit the target instantly.
“I am desperate for him to score. He is trying to shoot from angles that are not good angles. Darwin Nunez’s touches at that pace are phenomenal, that’s why I am desperate for it to click. When it clicks, I think he will cause an unbelievable amount of problems.
“When it comes to strikers, I can’t help but side with them. The one I sided with for so long was Torres back at Chelsea, I had to stay with that - and I’m doing that with Darwin Nunez at the minute.”
