Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham

Premier League, Anfield
March 31, 2019

Goals: Firmino 16′, Alderweireld OG 90′; Lucas 70′


The Reds made a winning return from international duty, but it was anything but smooth sailing for Jurgen Klopp‘s men.

Roberto Firmino got Liverpool off to the perfect start after latching onto a pinpoint delivery from Andy Robertson, but sloppy play and a lack of a clinical edge in the final third invited the visitors into the game.

Tottenham then proceeded to dominate the opening stages of the second half as Liverpool struggled to grab a foothold in proceedings, which ultimately led to the visitors’ equaliser through Lucas Moura.

The state of play made it appear as though the Reds were set to leave Anfield with a point, only for Mohamed Salah to force a mistake as Spurs bundled the ball over their own line to hand Liverpool an invaluable victory and a place atop the league table.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the dramatic victory on social media and on our forums.
