Former Uruguay international Gus Poyet believes Luis Suarez and Darwin Nunez are "different players".

However, he believes Nunez will become a success at Liverpool.

"Luis Suarez and Darwin Nunez are different players," said Poyet while speaking to Lord Ping. "But Nunez has all the attributes to be a great goalscorer in the Premier League. The goal against Fulham will give him the confidence he needs. It is easier to adapt to the Premier League as a defender than as a striker.

"Nunez will have to deal with situations where he might feel he's been fouled and the referee does not call it. Nunez will be knocked down many times, he'll be playing against defensive teams because he plays for Liverpool.

"I am confident he will score lots of goals and I do believe he will be a fan favourite by the end of the season."
