Darwin Nunez’s wayward shot nearly hits Astrid Wett in the face as Liverpool beat Chelsea

Darwin Nunez’s wayward shot nearly hits Astrid Wett in the face as Liverpool beat Chelsea 4-1 in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

Eagle-eyed viewers spotted the moment the OnlyFans member came very close to getting struck by a powerful shot that went high and over the bar.

The Chelsea supporter could be seen watching on in the away end, before having to duck for cover when the ball deflected off the top of the crossbar and went straight for her direction.

She was lucky however with it hitting the male beside her, as can be seen in the video below…

Responding to the viral video, Astrid Wett said: “Nunez has just nearly decapitated me in the stands and you guys are laughing?”

She also gave her reaction to Liverpool maintaining their five-point lead at the top of the Premier League with a comfortable victory at Anfield.

It was all too easy for the hosts as Diogo Jota opened the scoring before 20-year-old Conor Bradley fired in his first goal for the Reds.

Chelsea managed to get a late consolation through Christopher Nkunku before Luis Diaz grabbed a fourth late on.

Darwin Nunez also became the first player in the Premier League to hit the woodwork four times within one match since Opta started recording data in 2002. He also missed a penalty in the game against Chelsea.

Player of the match: Conor Bradley.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to BBC Match of the Day: “I don’t think you can have an outstanding team performance when the individuals don’t work together. The start was brilliant, we were really going for them. They tried to find [Cole] Palmer and we had struggles when the pressing was not right. We were outstanding, it was a top game. We could have scored and should have scored more goals. You cannot score five, six goals against Chelsea if you are not outstanding.”

On Conor Bradley: “What a wonderful kid he is. Outstanding finish, the whole game, the contribution, the involvement. It’s a job to play against [Raheem] Sterling, that’s not easy. I’m really happy for him. He’s a very serious young man and that was pretty special I have to say. We saw in pre-season. He is really doing well. A few weeks ago when I was in holiday a few Bolton fans asked if they could have Bradley back but it’s too late! For us it’s important because we could not have put this string of results together without these boys. Without [Jarell] Quansah, Conor and Bobby [Clark], they really helped us through this period. Joe Gomez has created his own position if you want. It’s really good, really happy for the boys.”

On Darwin Nunez: “He was really disappointed with himself about missing the penalty but he is a handful. It was really hard for him. Then he headed against the crossbar. He sets up a goal even after the massive disappointment. That’s the most important thing. He is in outstanding shape, still a bit unlucky so it’s all fine.”

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to TNT Sports: “You have to play outstandingly well to keep Chelsea calm. They’re super talented. The way we started the game was really strong.

“We could have scored one or two more. We brought on Trent and Robbo. The boys need rhythym.”

On Conor Bradley: “Incredible. Wonderful. He’s flying at the moment. Rightly so. He’s working hard and is a good footballer. He’s helped us so much it’s incredible. Quite a few people said we need a right-back in the summer but we were very positive about Conor.

“All the injuries we have, we can’t string these results together if these boys don’t show up.”

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino to BBC Match of the Day: “I think Liverpool were better than us, they deserved the three points. We were not good enough, I think for many reasons and I think there is too much to say, they were better than us.”

On the two penalty decisions that went against Chelsea: “Maybe yes, you need some luck sometimes. The [Conor] Gallagher penalty incident after seven minutes, I think it might have helped us to build our confidence and help us to play and face the game. When you play against a team like Liverpool that is doing really well and is one of the best teams in the last few years and very consistent, you need some points that can help the situation but today the situation was always against us.”

On what he learned from this game to take into the Carabao Cup final: “Massive game, we can learn a lot and approach the game in a different way. we need to be more aggressive and address them with the same energy. Today they were much better than us.”

Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino to TNT Sports: “It’s so clear they were much better than us. We lost every single duel. Every time we recovered the ball after one or two touches we lost it.”

On the two penalty shouts: “It was bad luck for us but that doesn’t change the feeling Liverpool were better than us.

“We move on. That was only one game. We knew Liverpool are one of the best teams. Maybe it was a little bit too much for us.”
