Nunez Hits Woodwork Four Times in Premier League Match

Darwin Nunez was the embodiment of a “nearly man” against Chelsea, showcasing everything that makes him both exhilarating and infuriating for Liverpool fans.

He carved out numerous chances, showcasing his pace, power, and link-up play, even assisting Luis Diaz’s goal for his 11th assist of the season – second only to Bukayo Saka in the Premier League.

However, his finishing touch deserted him once again.

He rattled the woodwork a staggering four times – a single-match Premier League record since 2003/04 – and has now hit the frame a remarkable nine times this season, more than triple any other player.


While he tends to miss at least one clear-cut opportunity per game, his overall impact remains undeniable.

His tireless pressing, intelligent movement, and creative spark make him invaluable to Liverpool’s system.

It’s a performance that perfectly encapsulates Nunez: frustratingly close to brilliance, yet undeniably impactful.

Whether he can translate his dominance into goals will be key to Liverpool’s success moving forward.
