The win not only extended their lead but also marked Liverpool’s first league triumph at the City Ground since 1984.

Nuñez, who made a comeback after recovering from a muscle injury sustained on February 17 against Brentford, seized the moment with a precise glancing header into the bottom corner from Alexis Mac Allister’s well-placed cross.

This crucial goal ensures Liverpool’s position at the top of the Premier League table, setting the stage for an anticipated clash with reigning champions Manchester City next Sunday.

As the match seemed destined for a goalless draw, and with title rivals City and Arsenal still to play their weekend fixtures, Jurgen Klopp’s side faced the risk of slipping to third place by Monday night.
