Throughout the afternoon, Liverpool struggled to break the deadlock, and it seemed they were headed for a draw until Nunez forced an impressive save from Forest goalkeeper Matz Sels in the 95th minute. Undeterred, the Uruguay international persevered and netted the decisive goal just four minutes later.

Nunez’s goal was recorded at 98 minutes and 35 seconds, marking the latest winning goal Liverpool has scored in the Premier League since the inception of records. Additionally, this strike ranks as the tenth-latest goal in Premier League history, reflecting the recent trend of late goals, with seven of the top ten occurring since the beginning of 2023.

The late winner felt like poetic justice for Nunez, who had endured taunts from Forest fans earlier in the match. Prior to the decisive goal, chants of ‘You’re just a s**t Andy Carroll’ echoed, prompting Jurgen Klopp to jokingly remark that such taunts only fueled Nunez’s determination to score.

“I would not sing a song like that,” Klopp chuckled. “I would not try to wind Darwin up.”

With this victory, Liverpool maintains control in the Premier League title race, moving four points clear of second-placed Manchester City, who have a game in hand on Sunday against Manchester United. Arsenal, trailing by five points, can narrow the gap to two points when they face Sheffield United on Monday evening.
