Darwin ready after Diaz disappointment
Darwin Nunez failed to fire for Uruguay at the World Cup, but can return to Liverpool as a crucial part of their attack.
The 23-year-old didn't trouble the scorers as his country crashed out of Qatar 2022 in the group stage.
However, he will have the opportunity to kickstart his career at Anfield in the second half of the domestic season.
And the £85m striker will be even more important to Jurgen Klopp and his front three following news of Luis Diaz's setback.
Out since October with a knee injury, Columbian Diaz was expected to return soon after the resumption of Premier League football.
Yet reports this week confirmed that the forward will be sidelined for at least another three months.

Reds favourites to finish strongly
Despite their defeat to Lyon at the weekend, Liverpool have still been chalked up as the odds-on favourites to round off the Dubai Super Cup with a win against the Rossoneri.
- Liverpool win 4/6
- Draw 3/1
- AC Milan win 3/1
Odds from Betfair correct at the time of post publication.
Fik of the bunch
Fikayo Tomori will no doubt have been disappointed to have missed out on the England World Cup squad.
The defender was in the squad for the international break prior to the 26-man selection but missed out.
It turns out he was unlikely to have played either way, with Harry Maguire and John Stones preferred at the back for Gareth Southgate.
He is in action today and has told the press that he is determined to do more to make his way into the England side.
"I'm always motivated, obviously there is disappointment because I wanted to be there," he said on the World Cup.
"But it didn't happen, and I know I have to do more to go to Euro 2024.
"There was disappointment, but I have to keep working and then let's see. Right now, I'm happy and content."

Liv'ing the life
Harvey Elliott has admitted that the Liverpool squad are loving life in Dubai as they prepare for the return of the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp's side have avoided the cold weather back home and will return soon before facing Man City.
''It's been a nice camp as well as a strange one in all fairness," Elliott told Sky Sports.
