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.
The celebrations were memorable, as the Reds recorded an enormous three points.
Fans were gobsmacked by Alisson’s winner…
I CANNOT BELIEVE WHAT I'VE JUST SEEN!

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.
