  • Darwin Nunez appeared to ask Cody Gakpo to smell his armpits during a Premier League clash on March 5
  • The duo were heavily involved as they starred in the demolition of Manchester United at Anfield
  • It was the first time that all of Jurgen Klopp's new-look front three were on target in the same game

Okay, it's official. Darwin Nunez is the king of weird celebrations. When he is not mocking opponents, he is coming up with bizarre celebrations of his own.

When you have hit form after struggling in the first few months, no one can really blame you if you decide to celebrate how you see fit. Nunez is finally proving why Jurgen Klopp made him the club's most expensive signing ever.

It has taken time, but it now appears that he has developed that chemistry with Mohamed Salah and Cody Gakpo. His blistering run to set up Salah in the Merseyside derby was just one of their amazing link-ups.

Against Manchester United, the trio exploded. Each of them got braces as Liverpool put their rivals to the sword with a scoreline that looked straight from a rugby game.

During the celebrations of one of the many goals they scored, as Daily Star reports, fans noticed Nunez urging Gakpo to smell his armpits.

The Uruguayan striker lifted his arm, pointed to his armpit and mumbled a few words to Gakpo, who appeared to smell it.

Whatever works. Klopp and Liverpool fans won't mind how his two new strikers choose to celebrate their goals, provided they keep their revival steady as they chase a top-four finish.

Nunez's dig on Rashford

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Nunez took a clear and apparent swipe at Marcus Rashford as Liverpool destroyed Manchester United at the Anfield Stadium on March 5.

Jurgen Klopp's side put on a meticulous show to hand United its heaviest defeat in Premier League history, casting doubt on their revival this season under Erik ten Hag.

Fans noticed Nunez celebrating with the Rashford style, which has been a hot debate this year. Despite having a frustrating night, the Red Devils star remains the most in-form player in the Premier League.
