Darwin Nunez meets up with Liverpool player to watch last night's FA Cup game together

Darwin Nunez appeared to watch last night’s Liverpool game with injured teammate Arthur Melo.

Both players are currently on the treatment table and were unavailable to play against Wolves. But as per their Instagram stories, that didn’t stop them coming together to cheer on their Liverpool colleagues.

Having posted a snap earlier in the day of him posing with Roberto Firmino and his wife, Arthur added a picture of the Reds game being shown on TV.

Darwin followed with a near-identical picture himself. Although the two players strangely didn’t tag each other, the ornaments and the decor make it pretty clear they’re watching in the same room. Time to take that Christmas tree down I think, lads!

Arthur still hoping for Liverpool resurrection

It’s heart-warming to see Arthur being involved with his teammates. Although the Brazilian has just 13-minutes of action to his name in a Liverpool shirt, he looks to be a popular figure.

That’s unlikely to help him earn a long-term stay at Anfield, but you never know. It could be important if he can get himself fit.

We know that Jurgen Klopp places great importance on having the right characters around the squad. If Arthur can show something on the pitch between now and May, maybe he still stands an outside chance of hanging around.

Right now, that would look like a near-impossibility. But with Juventus having some off-field financial problems, perhaps Liverpool can negotiate a much lower permanent transfer fee than the £32m that currently stands.

Obviously, it all hinges on how quickly the 26-year-old can get himself up to speed once fit again.

Klopp now has all of his midfield options available to him. With that in mind, it’s difficult to see how Arthur gets any game-time.

But hopefully he does get his chance somewhere along the line. The Brazil international took to Instagram at New Year’s to post an emotional message about what a tough year it has been for him personally.

There can’t be a Liverpool fan around who isn’t rooting for him to make good at Anfield. At the moment that looks desperately unlikely to happen. But he clearly has the support of his teammates. U21s coach Barry Lewtas also called him ‘first-class’ for his attitude prior to injury. Don’t write him off just yet.
