Sensational Alisson Winner Keeps Liverpool’s Season Alive

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson produced a stunning injury-time headed winner to snatch a 2-1 victory at West Brom, which keeps the Reds’ top-four hopes alive.

Liverpool had thrown everything at Sam Allardyce’s already-relegated side but by the 95th minute they still had not been able to find a second goal, after Mohamed Salah had cancelled out Hal Robson-Kanu’s opener.

However, the biggest twist was to come, with Alisson sent up for a corner and brilliantly heading home Trent Alexander-Arnold’s set-piece.

The Brazilian, whose father tragically died earlier this year, was visibly emotional at the final whistle as Klopp embraced him amid the Reds’ celebrations.

The victory keeps Liverpool’s Champions League qualifying hopes alive, moving them one point behind fourth-placed Chelsea, who host third-placed Leicester at Stamford Bridge, live on Sky Sports on Tuesday night. They know if they can beat Burnley and Crystal Palace, they are likely to be in Europe’s elite club competition again next season.

As for West Brom, who saw Kyle Bartley’s strike rightly ruled out for offside during the second half, they remain second-bottom in the Premier League table.
