Liverpool star set to return for Brighton clash from injury

Darwin Nunez picked up injury during the FA Cup clash at Old Trafford

Liverpool FC has been handed a significant injury boost as key player, Darwin Nunez, is expected to be fit enough to play against Brighton and Hove Albion at the end of the month. This comes as great news for Liverpool fans and sports betting enthusiasts alike.

The South American striker, who played all 120 minutes against Manchester United during last weekend’s incredible FA Cup quarter-final, appeared to suffer a slight hamstring injury. Despite being called up by Marcelo Bielsa to represent Uruguay during the current international break, he was forced to withdraw from the squad after continuing to experience discomfort in his leg.

Now back with Liverpool, according to a recent report, 24-year-old Nunez is on track with his recovery. This development provides a significant boost for The Reds who are currently embroiled in a tense three-way title race with Manchester City and Arsenal.

Medical staff have given hope of Nunez’s availability

Liverpool’s medical staff are believed to be confident that their number nine will be in contention for selection by Jurgen Klopp for their game against Roberto De Zerbi’s Seagulls on March 31st.

Nunez’s impending availability will undoubtedly delight Klopp. With Manchester City hosting Premier League table leaders Arsenal later that day, there's potential for Liverpool could return atop the table if they secure victory over Brighton.

Nunez will look to settle his score against Seagulls

Despite enjoying an excellent individual campaign this season, it should be noted that Nunez doesn't have an impressive record against Brighton. The forward has yet failed score against the Seagulls; his only contribution being an assist when both sides met back in August last year.

Klopp and Liverpool fans will undoubtedly hope that their flamboyant striker can improve this record when De Zerbi’s eighth-placed Seagulls arrive at Anfield on Easter Sunday.

The return of Darwin Nunez is a significant boost for Liverpool in their title race. His availability could potentially tip the scales in Liverpool's favor, especially if he can break his goal drought in the Brighton fixture. This development adds an extra layer of excitement for sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts as they anticipate the upcoming clash between Liverpool and Brighton.
