Liverpool fans were left stunned by an incredible late win over West Brom, with one obvious talking point standing out!
West Brom 1-2 Liverpool
Premier League, The Hawthorns
May 16, 2021
Goals: Robson-Kanu 15′; Salah 33′, Alisson 90+5′
The Reds knew they had to win to keep their Premier League top-four hopes alive – what unfolded was the definition of drama.
Hal Robson-Kanu gave the Baggies a first-half lead, but Mohamed Salah‘s superb goal levelled matters before half-time.
Just when it looked like Liverpool were about to experience a damaging result, Alisson scored in the 95th minute, having come up for a corner.
The celebrations were memorable, as the Reds recorded an enormous three points.
Here’s how Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter, Facebook and across This Is Anfield.
Fans were gobsmacked by Alisson’s winner…

This interview should be played back to every football journalist, pundit and fan as a stark fucking reminder that these are just young lads away from their homes in THE most trying of times in their lives just trying to give us a bit of joy for 90 minutes a week

The enormity of the win didn’t go unnoticed…
Just when I was about to declare our season over…
If we can get top 4 and get out, it’ll be a miracle.
So much work to be done in the summer, but top 4 seriously helps to refresh this squad and kick back on next season.
