Peter Crouch admitted he would have been ‘fuming’ with Darwin Nunez had they shared a pitch together during the 2-0 win over Napoli.
The former Red pointed to the moment the Uruguayan struck home Liverpool’s final goal of the night as the ball appeared to be trickling over the line from Virgil van Dijk’s initial header on goal.
In fairness to our talismanic No.4, it did indeed look unlikely that Alex Meret or one of his teammates would have got close enough in time to clear the danger, though we can’t blame our potentially record-breaking signing for making absolutely sure that the desired result occurred.
