Liverpool won 3 valuable points in the trip to Aston Villa home. On Boxing Day, The Kop won convincingly with 3 goals scored by Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and young talent Stefan Bajectic. Aston Villa’s only goal belonged to striker Ollie Watkins.
Sharing after the match, coach Jurgen Klopp praised the performance of Darwin Nunez. The Uruguayan striker contributed greatly to Bajectic’s goal. Efforts to save the ball close to the crossbar from Nunez created conditions for Bajectic to hit the home team’s net.
“He played an unbelievable match. Life isn’t fair. Sometimes you just need an inch or a foot faster and the ball goes into the net. Nunez will score. We have no doubt about that. Nunez has incredible power,” Klopp told Amazon Prime Sport.
“Of course, Nunez will score. I’ve seen Nunez’s situation happen to a lot of strikers. Everything will be fine. He has an exceptional performance.”
