Liverpool were held to a draw by newly-promoted Fulham in their 2022/23 Premier League opener, with some fans claiming Darwin Nunez‘s cameo was “the only positive” from the game.

Just as he did against Man City in the Community Shield, Nunez made a real impact in the second half, with fans eager to see him start in Liverpool’s next Premier League encounter against Crystal Palace.

Nunez was involved in Liverpool’s second equaliser, laying the ball off for Mohamed Salah to make it 2-2 with 10 minutes remaining.

It was the Uruguayan who delivered the Reds’ equaliser with a clever flicked finish, but Mitrovic put Fulham back in front from the penalty spot after being hauled down by Virgil van Dijk inside the box.

There was little improvement from Liverpool in the early stages of the second half, who were further disheartened when Thiago limped off with a hamstring injury in the 51st minute.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side looked a lot more potent after the introduction of Nunez and Harvey Elliott.

In hindsight, Klopp’s decision to start with Roberto Firmino instead of Nunez didn’t pay off, but that wasn’t Liverpool’s only problem.
