Newcastle vs Liverpool LIVE: Premier League results and reaction as Nunez scores late winner for Reds at 10

Newcastle, an incredibly strong team – Klopp

Liverpool pulled off a remarkable comeback at St. James’ Park to defeat Newcastle with 10 men in their premier league clash Sunday night.

A rocky start from Trent Alexander-Arnold could have seen the right-back sent off after picking up a yellow card before committing a foul on Anthony Gordon. Gordon, however, made it pay by picking his pocket and beating Alisson to put Newcastle ahead in the first half.

Minutes later, Virgil Van Dijk brought down Alexander Isak as he scored on goal and the Liverpool captain was sent off with a straight red card. The visitors dug deep to reach half-time before Jurgen Klopp made changes.

Diogo Jota and Harvey Elliott gave Liverpool much-needed control, but it was Darwin Nunez who came off the bench to equalize first and then score a stoppage-time winner to pull off a fantastic comeback for Liverpool.

Darwin Nunez offers rescue act and recall when Liverpool needed it most

Last August it was Darwin Nunez who lost his mind. A year later, with Liverpool’s captain and vice-captain setting a bad example and threatening collapse at Newcastle, Nunez served as saviour.

One man down, one goal down, almost two adrift, a first defeat in 14 expected league matches. liverpool. Enter Nunez, the £64m player was sent off on his Anfield debut for head-butting Joachim Andersen. Now the fifth striker, he landed an unlikely comeback; a quick double turned a damaging setback into a landmark win. Suddenly, the costlier of the two crises was that of Newcastle.

They managed to snatch defeat from the clutches of victory. They can think of two moments to transform the mood at St James’ Park and the mood of their start to the season. The first, when Diogo Jota’s pass bounced off Sven Botman and Nunez fired a shot past Nick Pope. The second, when Bruno Guimaraes lost the ball, Mohammad Salah provided a pass with a slide rule and Nunez became an executioner again.
