Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool LIVE: Premier League result and reaction as Darwin Nunez scores 99th minute winner

Jurgen Klopp’s side head to The City Ground hoping to extend their lead atop the Premier

Just seconds from the end, Darwin Nunez produced one of those uproarious moments that you might usually say was a sign of where the title is going. The evidence of this season, however, suggests it’s going to need many more of them.

Perhaps the greatest significance of this 99th-minute 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest, beyond the vintage late header of such a classic run-in victory, was that Jurgen Klopp’s side kept persevering despite so many absences. They have kept this form going, and still have a number of stars to come back.

The return of a player who is definitely ascending to that kind of level for supporters was the crucial difference here.

Nottingham Forest 0-1 Liverpool: The Uruguayan scored off the bench to send the Reds four points clear at the top of the Premier League table

Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool

Liverpool win their first-ever Premier League game away at Forest, with Nunez heading in a late winner to give the Reds a 1-0 victory. The Reds dominated throughout but failed to have a shot on target in the first half. Forest had the best chance before the break, with Kelleher making a great stop to keep out Elanga after a quick counter. Liverpool upped the pressure in the second half, with Robertson seeing a shot cleared off the line before Diaz and Nunez both went close. In the ninth minute of stoppage time, Mac Allister picked out Nunez with a lovely ball, and the substitute glanced in the winner to seal a big three points. It means that Liverpool go four points clear at the top of the table, with Manchester City and Arsenal not playing until later on this weekend. Next up for them is their Europa League round of 16 first leg against Sparta Prague. Forest stay in 17th, still four points above the drop zone. They travel to Brighton next weekend. That’s all for today, Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool

Szoboszlai’s throughball to Endo is too heavy, and Danilo puts his laces through the clearance, just wanting to get it away. Liverpool quickly work it back into the final third to win a late corner, which is likely going to be their final chance.

BLOCK! Forest break quickly on the counter once more, with Hudson-Odoi striding down the left before sweeping a cross to the edge of the box. Gibbs-White has space for a shot, which he takes, but Van Dijk sticks out a leg to deflect it wide.

GREAT SAVE! Tsimikas whips Liverpool’s latest corner into the box and it’s just too high for Nunez and hits Murillo behind him. The defender doesn’t know much about it as his header bounces towards goal, but Sels reflexively sticks out his arm to keep it out on the line.
