'What on earth has happened?' - Garth Crooks left bewildered by three Liverpool players after Wolves loss

BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks was shocked by the performances of three Liverpool players in their 3-0 defeat at Wolves on Saturday - and has accused Darwin Nunez of "stage fright".

Liverpool were heavily beaten at Molineux at the weekend and have slipped to 10th in the Premier League following their seventh league loss of the campaign.

Like many who have watched the Premier League this season, Crooks is bewildered by the downfall of Jurgen Klopp's side.

The BBC pundit took aim at Liverpool trio Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita and Joe Gomez for their poor performances in the loss against Julen Lopetegui's side.

“What on earth has happened to Joe Gomez, Thiago and Naby Keita?” Crooks said to BBC Sport. “Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson’s recent lack of form is also most worrying, while forwards Darwin Nunez and Mo Salah hardly had a kick.

“I’m beginning to think Nunez is suffering from stage fright. Clubs don’t come much bigger than Liverpool and the pressure can be enormous. Nunez is really struggling in front of goal.”
