Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp praised Darwin Nunez after his performance helped the side extend their unbeaten home run to 15 games.
The 24-year-old Uruguayan grabbed his second goal in the Europa League in the 5-1 defeat of Toulouse and was involved heavily in the build-up for Liverpool’s fourth.
After some great individual play saw him take the ball past the Toulouse goalkeeper Guillaume Restes, his attempt at a wide open goal could only hit the post.
Ryan Gravenberch was on hand to pick up the pieces and convert a few seconds later.
Klopp said after the game: “I couldn’t care less that he hits the post in that moment, because everything before was super convincing.
“How he took the defender away, how he passed the goalkeeper, it was the perfect situation.
“He did really good, the goal he scored the situation that he was involved in, dropping into midfield, staying on the ball all these kinds of things.
“I said before the game, he is happy more and more in the moment, you can see that everyday and we have to make sure that it stays like that.”
His overall performance could improve his chances of starting the game against Nottingham Forest on Sunday, despite player management being an important factor for Klopp.
With a busy schedule ahead, which includes five matches in two weeks, the Liverpool manager may look to make changes to the starting line-up again.
He said: “A lot of players who did not play tonight will probably start on Sunday, so for them it’s fine.”
Liverpool will look to make it 16 unbeaten home games this Sunday against Forest at Anfield.
