Jurgen Klopp has praised Darwin Nunez’s performance following Saturday’s 2-2 draw between Liverpool and Fulham.

Liverpool twice fell behind at Craven Cottage on goals from Aleksandar Mitrovic but Nunez and Mohamed Salah ensured Klopp’s side went a point away.

Nunez, a summer signing from Benfica worth £85million, started his first Premier League game on the bench but was brought on in the 51st minute to help Liverpool’s lackluster attack.

And the Uruguay international dazzled in Liverpool attack and could have scored more than one goal.

“In a situation like this, where we can’t really find a way in front of goal, you need that extra determination, and of course the difference also makes it difficult for the opponent,” Klopp said of Nunez.

“A great goal, could have scored another one, maybe two, crazy. So he’s involved in a lot of scoring situations, that’s really cool and we have to tease him about that.

“Imagine we played well, how many times could we set him up? Because obviously that was our main problem that our delivery wasn’t good enough most of the time and that was fine, we had huge chances, it’s crazy.

“If I watched it again if you looked at highlights you could totally misunderstand this game because we had a couple of really good situations but between those situations we just didn’t play well.”

Asked about Luis Diaz’s performance, Klopp said: “Lucho is a great player, a fantastic player, but today he had a huge chance, a super chance.

“It’s really not easy for attacking players on a day like this because they defend massively, how they’re set up, how the deliveries are and we didn’t play well enough to bring them in at the right moments.

“But when we were there you can see immediately how good Lucho is, like one, crossbar or post, I don’t know exactly but close.

“Yes, brilliant player, but he can play better than today, like all South Americans.”
