Luck shines on Liverpool in another last-minute win

Jurgen Klopp admitted he couldn't care less that Liverpool's dramatic 2-1 win against Tottenham was an "ugly" way to return to the top of the Premier League.

Salah received a wonderful cross from Trent Alexander Arnold and his header was dropped by the visitors' goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, onto the legs of his teammate, Toby Alderweireld, who failed to control the ball and scored an own goal.

It was a tense few final minutes at Anfield as Jurgen Klopp's side looked for a dramatic late victor and they got just that in the 90th minute.

"I think there's one picture where Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane are sat together on the bench at Leicester. Harry did it the hard way". Sure, Chelsea would go on to score another goal and win the game, but the equalizer changed things dramatically. Momentum is not a coincidence, it is something you take, you keep and you use.

"We are going to do everything to win".

"Liverpool have come an terrible long way and given what they have done so far, I'd say Klopp should be Manager of the Year, even if he finishes second".

We're not so harsh as to include the 10 own-goal scorers, however, so that takes the total down to a mere 390.


"We showed how focused we are to try to do our best".

"It's a very bad taste, because we were getting a good result, against Liverpool, who are fighting up there, and there's this bad taste at the last minute". The same can't be said of this year's team, though, who have grind out games more than their fans would have expected.

"Sometimes, in another game, it happens the same, maybe we won when we didn't deserve too much".

There was a gentler pace to the second-half, with Fulham defending better and the Blues weren't afforded the same amount space to wreak havoc.

Former Reds defender Carragher believes trailing Manchester City could suit Liverpool FC in the remaining months of the Premier League season. We were but in the last few weeks we find our reality, our place.

City is facing a busy April with eight matches, including the FA Cup semi-final against Brighton and Hove Albion and Champions League quarter-final with Tottenham. "We know we've got the energy, we know we've got the heart to go right until the end in every single game".

"We have a mini-league now, seven games, it's in our hands to be in the top four and Champions League next season".
