id the touchline melee, on-field euphoria and mass widespread delirium inside Anfield as Fabio Carvalho rattled home a last-gasp winner against Newcastle United, one scene stood out too.
Several rows behind the celebrating Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff, Darwin Nunez stood upon his seat. Towering above the surrounding crowd, beating his chest and roaring with Spartan-esque zeal while glaring at the opposition bench causing confrontation down below.
It’s the sort of testosterone-fuelled madness any football fan loves to see exhibited from a member of their own beloved team, and at this point it has been lost on absolutely nobody that young Darwin both lives and plays with his heart on his sleeve.
The Uruguayan is competitive beyond belief and, while the post-Newcastle madness will live long and affectionately in the memory… there was a reason why a perfectly match-fit Darwin found himself watching on from the stands, as opposed to leading the line and helping Liverpool make up an early lost margin in domestic duties.

Three long and very contrasting matches have passed since the £64 million-man was brandished the red card against Crystal Palace on his full debut.
