Just when one chance after another passed Liverpool by and it appeared as though it was just one of those days, Divock Origi entered from stage right to hit the glorious winner.
There was angst and hope in bucket loads and just when you may have resigned yourself to the Reds not seizing the chance to capitalise on Chelsea‘s loss, up pops the super-sub himself.
Introduced in the 68th-minute, it was not until the 94th that the moment arrived. When Salah pulled a pass back to the No. 27, who held off the defender, swivelled and scored.
And the ensuring scenes of celebration were simply glorious.
The entire bench, players and staff alike were on their feet and on the touchline as Origi was rightly mobbed.
And we’re all Virgil, aren’t we?
But what did it look like from the perspective of the travelling Kop? Well, simply put. Incredible.

Look at those happy faces!
And this one is just pure art.
One can’t underestimate the power of victories such as these and while they certainly made us sweat, it was job done in a glorious fashion.
All Aston Villa of 2019/20-esque, let’s hope we get the same result come May! Up the Reds.
