Darwin Nunez impressed and even scored a beautiful goal in the first half, but was still criticized for his unbelievable miss afterward. The Uruguayan player seemed to have scored a double after overcoming both the defender and the opponent’s goalkeeper. The crowd at Anfield was on their feet waiting for the home team’s fourth goal, when Nunez had to hold his head in regret after his shot hit the post, despite Ryan Gravenberch scoring just a few seconds later.
Nunez’s miss was reminiscent of former Liverpool striker Fernando Torres. After leaving Liverpool to join Chelsea, Torres’ performance declined a lot. He left behind an unforgettable moment, that is Dribbled past David de Gea, but shot the ball incorrectly in front of an empty goal.
One fan shared: “Nunez is Fernando Torres reincarnated.”
A second added: “Maybe Nunez really is the new Torres.”
A third posted: “If you really look closely, Nunez is basically Chelsea’s version of Fernando Torres. Always doing everything right, just inexplicably unable to score.”
