‘It is just crazy’ – Jurgen Klopp hails ‘outstanding’ Darwin Nunez despite penalty miss in Liverpool’s thumping win over Chelsea

The Uruguayan striker had a bizarre outing against Mauricio Pochettino's men as he struck the woodwork four times - which is a record for a player in a single Premier League match since the 2003/04 season. Moreover, his penalty miss in the first half further dampened his confidence. However, he ended the match on a positive note after setting up Luis Diaz for the fourth goal in the 79th minute which lifted his spirits.

Despite Nunez drawing a blank, Liverpool looked unstoppable as they opened up a five-point lead over nearest rivals Manchester City with goals from Diogo Jota, Conor Bradley, Dominik Szoboszlai and Diaz. Christopher Nkunku, who came on as a substitute in the second half, managed to pull one back for the London side which was simply not enough to salvage anything from Merseyside.
