Darwin Nunez discusses his goal drought and vows to start scoring soon.
Darwin Nunez has revealed his goal drought in English football since joining Liverpool in the summer.
He then made his first Champions League start for Liverpool on Tuesday in a 2-0 win over Rangers and despite being presented with a number of chances, he found goalkeeper Allan McGregor in strong form.
Darwin Nunez: “I’m calm..”

“When the first one goes in, more will go in,” Nunez has now promised in an interview with TNT Sports Brasil. “I’ve been through that (goal droughts) and it’s a little uncomfortable because, in the end, as forwards we live on goals.
“But I’m calm, the coach has always supported me. My teammates also support me at all times and I will always try to help the team by scoring goals or, even without a goal, try to help the best I can.”
The 23-year-old also added his thoughts on that sending-off against Palace, when he appeared to headbutt Eagles defender Joachim Andersen.
“It was a very tough time,” he said. “I was suspended for three games, I know I made a big mistake and now I’m aware that it won’t happen again.
“I have to calm my nerves during the games, talk less. We all make mistakes and I know it will serve as a learning experience.”
Nunez will have another chance to win over Liverpool fans on Sunday when the club travels to London to face league leaders Arsenal.
If there were any positives to his performance against the Rangers, they were that he was getting into good positions in front of goal and could have easily walked away with two or three goals.
Finding that killer instinct against The Gunners on Sunday would be an excellent starting point.
