Darwin Nunez‘s first league goal in nearly two months propelled Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League on Tuesday as the team defeated struggling Burnley 2-0.

Nunez’s deft finish six minutes in gave Liverpool the lead at Turf Moor, but the second goal failed to come, preventing Jurgen Klopp‘s team from killing the hosts.
Burnley held on thanks to goals disallowed from Cody Gakpo and Harvey Elliott, but Diogo Jota’s effort in the ninetieth minute sealed the victory. However, Mohamed Salah was denied by the crossbar.

Ranked nineteenth In the second half, Burnley had their own opportunities and came dangerously close to grabbing an equalizer when Jacob Bruun Larsen’s shot whizzed painfully wide of the post.

The points should have been secured long ago, so there was a sense of relief when substitute Jota scored his 50th goal for Liverpool from a close range following a sweeping move.

Klopp said to Amazon Prime, “We put obstacles in our path and eventually we find a way to get over them, but it’s unbelievable.” “Even though we played a fantastic game, it was only 1-0 when they realized something could happen.

“They had a crazy chance to tie the score, but we prevailed 2-0 in the most trying circumstances of the entire match.”
