Aldridge: Workaholic Nunez now showing Liverpool what he can do

Liverpool hero John Aldridge is excited about the current form of Darwin Nunez.

Nunez was again on target for Liverpool's win against West Ham on Sunday.

Aldridge told the Liverpool Echo: "Darwin Nunez was great for Liverpool against West Ham - I've always thought he was going to come good. He's a handful. He missed an easy chance - even that, what a goal it would have been - but he's just such a handful.

"He's a workaholic, which I was. You look at Rushy and the players that used to lead the line for the team, they have to work hard. He'll do that selflessly and that goes a long, long way.

"He's scoring goals, creating mayhem and he'll only get better. He's 24, you know? Good now but that's really young in striker's terms. The experience he's going to gain with Liverpool in the Premier League - he'll get better.

"But it's not just all about Nunez - or Mohamed Salah. It's the same front three that starts against Tottenham for me, but what we've got now is a plan B and a bit of a plan C where we can throw four attackers at you - we've always just had a plan A. I'm delighted to see it."
