Top 6 players with 100% penalty conversion rate — one Liverpool player in, not Salah

Amid the buzz around Mohamed Salah missing two penalties in a row, there are actually players who have scored every penalty they ever took in their career during a game. Darwin Nunez is one of those players. Although the Uruguayan doesn't take penalties for Liverpool his record from the spot is 100%.

Fantasyfootballpundits have revealed six players in football who have not missed a spot-kick after attempting 10 or more penalties.

Sources say Jurgen Klopp will discuss with Mo Salah about whether or not he continues as Liverpool's designated penalty-taker. Nunez presents the best option on paper.


Liverpool 'contemplating' replacing Salah as penalty taker after 2 consecutive misses

According to reliable Liverpool source Paul Joyce, the Reds are contemplating replacing Mohamed Salah as the team's designated penalty taker.

This comes after Salah missed two consecutive spot-kicks against Bournemouth and Arsenal. On both occasions, Salah completely failed to hit the target. Those misses led to the Red dropping five points from six available.

Also, those two misses by Salah are the only two he's had to take this season.

Whether or not Salah is replaced as the club's penalty-taker, Jurgen Klopp intends to have sit-down talks with the Egyptian forward who has missed 5 penalties in his Liverpool career scoring 24.

Salah's penalty miss at Bournemouth probably hurt Liverpool the most as they ended up losing 1-0

If Liverpool decides to drop Salah as their penalty taker, players like Gakpo, Nunez and even Robertson are good enough to assume the responsibility.
