VIDEO | Virgil vs Nottingham bench after the match



In a heart-stopping finale at the City Ground on Saturday, Darwin Nunez emerged as the hero for Premier League leaders Liverpool, nodding in a last-gasp winner to secure a crucial 1-0 victory over relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest.

With Nunez’s dramatic 99th-minute goal, Liverpool extended their lead at the top of the table to four points, amassing 63 points from 27 matches, though second-placed Manchester City still hold a game in hand. Meanwhile, Forest finds themselves in 17th place, maintaining a precarious four-point buffer above the dreaded relegation zone.

Throughout the match, Liverpool asserted their dominance in possession, yet encountered difficulty breaching Forest’s resolute defensive setup, setting the stage for a tense and tightly contested affair.

Despite Forest’s steadfast resistance, Liverpool persisted in their attacking endeavors, with goalkeeper Matz Sels producing a series of remarkable saves to thwart their advances. However, Sels proved powerless to prevent Nunez’s late heroics, sending the Liverpool bench and manager Juergen Klopp into euphoric celebrations as they leapt to their feet in jubilation.

The dramatic conclusion to the match encapsulated the unpredictable nature of football, underscoring the resilience and determination of Liverpool as they continue their relentless pursuit of glory amidst the rigors of the Premier League campaign.
