Darwin Nunez Scores Twice in Dramatic Late Comeback as Liverpool Beat Newcastle

Liverpool came from behind to beat Newcastle United 2-1 in a dramatic Premier League clash on Saturday. The Magpies took the lead in the first half through Joelinton, but Nunez scored twice in the final 10 minutes to seal the victory for the Reds.

The win keeps Liverpool in touch with Manchester City at the top of the table, and it was a timely reminder of Nunez's quality after he struggled to make an impact in his first few games for the club.

The Uruguayan striker was brought in from Benfica for a club-record fee in the summer, but he had only scored one goal in his previous four appearances for Liverpool. But he showed his class against Newcastle, scoring two superb goals to turn the game around.

His first goal came in the 80th minute, when he latched onto a pass from Mohamed Salah and fired a low shot past Martin Dubravka. And he sealed the victory in the 90th minute, heading home a cross from Andrew Robertson.

The win was a major boost for Liverpool, who have now won their last four games in all competitions. They remain one point behind Manchester City, but they have a game in hand.

Nunez's performance will also be a major confidence boost for the striker. He has shown that he has the quality to be a success at Liverpool, and he will be hoping to continue his good form in the coming weeks.

The win was also a significant one for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. He has been under pressure in recent weeks after the team's inconsistent form, but this result will go a long way to easing those concerns.

Liverpool will now look to build on this momentum when they travel to Tottenham Hotspur next weekend.
