‘Thank you for mentioning’ – Jurgen Klopp reveals Liverpool dressing room talks that unleashed Darwin Nunez

Jurgen Klopp highlighted the tactical change for Darwin Nunez as the inspiration behind Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

And the Reds boss also reserved a word for Alexis Mac Allister’s “exceptional performance” in midfield as the visitors went five points clear at the top of the Premier League at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.

After a drab first half Diogo Jota scored twice in between a brace from Nunez as the Reds swatted aside their hosts in what was their first Premier League game since Mohamed Salah flew out to be part of Egypt’s Africa Cup of Nations squad in the Ivory Coast.

Nunez initially started on the left with Jota central and Luis Diaz completing the front three on the right side before the Uruguay international moved inside for the second half to score his ninth and 10th goals of the campaign.

“Look in the situation we are in, without Mo, we have to find a way and we have players who can play on the right wing and they can all play there but it is about which is the best position and how do we set up the rest around,” Klopp said.

“Darwin can obviously play on the left wing, he has done it before but he played there, Joey (Gomez) was a bit deeper and protecting, so we were waiting too long for balls in behind and were not involved much.
