Liverpool’s thrilling 4-3 Premier League victory over Fulham on Sunday came about thanks to two late goals in as many minutes, the most important of which was scored by Trent Alexander-Arnold in the 88th minute.
In the 87th minute, Wataru Endo scored, and Juergen Klopp’s squad moved up to second place in the rankings with 31 points thanks to goals from Alexis Mac Allister, Alexander-Arnold’s incredible free kick, and Bernd Leno’s own goal for Fulham.
Manchester City is in third place with 29 points, two points behind leaders Arsenal, but they play later on Sunday. Fulham is ranked fourteenth.
Mohamed Salah set up Endo for a long-range goal as Fulham were set to break Liverpool’s league record of 18 wins at Anfield dating back to October 2022.
Alexander-Arnold raced back to the centre circle and met Kostas Tsimikas’ header with a header to score from the edge of the area.
Bobby De Cordova-Reid, Kenny Tete, and Harry Wilson all scored for Fulham, who twice overcame a goal deficit.
In the 20th minute, Alexander-Arnold was initially given credit for Liverpool’s opening goal with an incredible free kick that flew over the wall, smacked into the crossbar and then struck keeper Leno.
In the 38th minute, Mac Allister scored a remarkable first goal for Liverpool after a Fulham clearance landed at his feet. After a few touches, he shot a rocket into the upper corner from a distance of 25 yards.
A week prior, Alexander-Arnold’s goal in the 80th minute had halted Manchester City’s 23-game winning streak at the Etihad Stadium with a 1-1 draw.
In the first moments of the match, Salah appeared to have scored his 200th goal for Liverpool with a close-range stab, but VAR showed Luis Diaz was offside.
Leno took a knee to the head during the first half, which resulted in a lengthy stoppage. Despite having his head extensively wrapped, he continued to play.
