Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo, who were the cause of Liverpool’s fall to mid-table this season and who even had a stigma of eating and running, 메이저사이트 have definitely come back to life.
Liverpool won 2-0 in the 2022/2023 English Premier League (EPL) round 24 away match against Newcastle United held at St. James Park in Newcastle Upon Tyne at 2:30 am (Korean time) on the 19th.
With the victory, they climbed to 8th place with 35 points. Now, the gap with 4th place Newcastle (41 points) has narrowed to 6 points. If this upward trend continues, it is worth aiming for a jump to 4th place.
What is encouraging is that Nunez and Gakpo, who were recruited with a huge amount of money, played a big role. Núñez scored the first goal in the 10th minute and Gakpo scored an additional goal in the 17th minute to end the 2-0 victory. Both players led the winning streak with two consecutive attack points.
This season, the two players wore Liverpool kits with much anticipation. Nunez recorded a transfer fee of 80 million euros (approximately 108 billion won) and 44 million pounds (approximately 68 billion won) for each piece. Expectations were high as he spent a total of 176 billion won, which was not small.
He had a lot of difficulty adapting, and as the team’s performance plummeted, criticism and concerns toward the two players were great. At this rate, he could have left his name as a player in Liverpool history.
Núñez and Gakpo have definitely survived the Everton and Merseyside derby. Even before Newcastle, he continues to rise and is active as much as his body value. Liverpool will use this momentum to seek a turnaround in fourth place in the league and the UEFA Champions League.
