Darwin Nunez ended his Liverpool preseason goal drought in ruthless style, with four goals, as Jurgen Klopp's side won 5-0

Klopp has offered short and sharp responses when questioned about both Liverpool and Nunez's preseason form in recent weeks.

The Liverpool manager was unconcerned by their loss to Manchester United, and he rubbished criticism of Nunez, following a few high-profile misses against the Red Devils.

Liverpool beat competition from Manchester United and Arsenal, among others, to the signing of Nunez, who is coming off a stellar season for Benfica.

With summer signing Núñez on the bench, Liverpool got off to a blistering start with no other than Mohammed Salah opening the score.
