But the German admits that Nunez could turn his attentions to a personal goal to outscore the Norwegian striker should he still be in the running to land the Golden Boot at the business end of the campaign.
“I don't know Darwin well enough yet but at the moment he is just concerned that he can score for us and set up goals for us or whatever," Klopp said. “I think at the moment he isn't bothered about comparisons or rivalries, not at all. But if there was a situation towards the end of the season about goalscoring or whatever then there could be, yes.
“I don't think Mo Salah would look at that either yet. It was always clear that Haaland at City would work out. It's a chance-producing side and he is a finisher so it was always clear and that is why it is not a surprise or whatever."
When asked whether he had set Nunez a goals target for this campaign, Klopp replied: “No I didn't - of course no."
