Liverpool's Darwin Nunez celebrates scoring their side's first goal of the game during the Premier League match at Craven Cottage, London. Saturday August 6, 2022.

Only 14 players have scored on their Premier League debut for Liverpool since the top division was rebranded in 1992 – but how many of them can you name?

The man pictured above has followed in the footsteps of just 13 others to notch for the Reds on their first appearance for the club in the Premier League.

“This is just the beginning. Come on LFC!” wrote the striker on Twitter after opening his account in the top flight of English football as a substitute in a 2-2 draw against Fulham.

But scoring on your debut isn’t necessarily a good omen for a brilliant career at Anfield. Some legendary Liverpool goalscorers – particularly in the recent Jurgen Klopp era – got off the mark early, but there are also some forgettable names that made excellent starts to inauspicious stints with the club.

We’ve given the year of each debut goal to help you out, but that’s all we’re giving you, so you’re definitely going to need to get your thinking caps on. Our score to beat for this one is 9/14 and we’ll be seriously impressed if you can get full marks off the top of your head.

If this gives you a taste for another Liverpool-related challenge, why not have a go at naming their starting XI from Jurgen Klopp’s first game in charge all the way back in 2015.
