- Nunez is undroppable for Liverpool due to his all-round game.
- He has 11 assists so far this season.
Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez is the most unlucky player in the English Premier League this season having hit the woodwork a record nine times in just 22 matches.
The Uruguayan seems to do everything right. He is skillful and has the pace and physicality to thrive in the most coveted league in the world but scoring has been a major problem.
Nunez twice hit the woodwork in the opening stages in the 4-0 rout of Chelsea on Wednesday- and four times in total, to cap off a frustrated night for the burley forward who has scored seven EPL goals.
Against The Blues, he struck the post from the penalty spot after Diego Jota was clumsily brought down.
It is the first time a player has hit the woodwork on four separate occasions in a single match since records began in the 2003/04 season.
But although he still misses at least one gilt-edged chance per game on average, he is undroppable for Liverpool due to his all-round game.
His cross for Luis Diaz’s goal was the Uruguayan’s 11th assist of the season.
Trent Alexander Arnold (Liverpool), Matheus Cuhna (Wolves), Anthony Gordon (Newcastle), Jefferson Lerma (Crystal Palace), Calton Morris (Luton Town) and Dominik Solanke (Bournemouth) have hit the post three times
Elijah Adebayo ( Luton), Miguel Almiron (Newcastle) and Julian Alvarez (Man City) have hit the woodwork twice.
