Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson net incredible injury-time winner at West Brom to keep
The top four bid alive
the Brazilian shot-stopper Alisson Becker may very well have saved Liverpool’s season
on Sunday. But not with a save. but with a stunning, 95th-minute, game-winning goal –
the first goal by a Liverpool keeper ever.
West Brom boss Sam Allardyce looked to have frustrated Liverpool again by stretching
his unbeaten run against the Reds to six games.
It was going take something special to beat relegated Albion – and that’s exactly what
With Liverpool wasting chance after chance, it seemed their top-four hopes were
about to take a huge dent.
But a stoppage-time corner saw Alisson race upfield to take his place in the Baggies box.
And when Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner came in, the Brazilian was there to head
home and spark wild celebrations on the Reds bench.
Allison became only the SIXTH keeper in Premier League history to find the net –
and the first to score a winner.
The goal came just three months after the death of Allison’s father, Jose, who drowned
aged just 57, who he dedicated the goal to.
Allardyce’s side made it clear they would not be rolled over by the Reds with a stubborn
display that deserved a point.
But Allison’s goal was storybook stuff – and could prove to be the key moment that
brings Champions League football back to Anfield.
