Thanks to a very late goal, Liverpool FC maintained their top position in the Premier League.

Substitute attacker Darwin Núñez scored a header in the ninth minute of stoppage time on Saturday for a 1-0 (0-0) win at Nottingham Forest.

Coach Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool team, which is still weakened by replacements, celebrated the victory stormily a week after winning the League Cup.

Chasers and defending champions Manchester City are four points behind before the derby against Manchester United this Sunday.

Third-placed Arsenal FC, who so far have only one point less than last year's treble winners City, will only play at Sheffield United on Monday evening.

Timo Werner scored for the London team for the first time since moving to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

In the 3-1 (0-0) win against city rivals Crystal Palace under new coach Oliver Glasner, Werner initially had the best chance in the first half.

In the 77th minute, the striker, on loan from RB Leipzig, who is still fighting for a place in the DFB team for the home European Championship, managed to equalize.

Spurs are fifth in the table.

Before the first leg of the round of 16 in the Europa League at SC Freiburg, West Ham United won 3-1 (0-0) at FC Everton thanks to two goals in stoppage time.
