Alisson keeps Liverpool’s Champions League hopes alive with injury-time winner vs West Brom

    Alisson keeps Liverpool’s Champions League hopes alive with injury-time winner vs West Brom

    West Brom vs Liverpool

    Liverpool and West Brom faced off in a Premier League meeting on Sunday afternoon.

    The tie was of little importance to West Brom, who have already been relegated back down to the Championship the season after winning promotion.

    Liverpool, though, still had it all to play for, with a top-four finish not yet out of reach for the Reds.

    Ahead of kick-off on Sunday, Liverpool sat 5th in the Premier League, just four points off 4th-placed Chelsea.

    Alisson saves Liverpool’s season

    So, if the Merseysiders truly intended to keep the pressure on Chelsea, they were no doubt aware that all three points were needed at the Hawthorns.

    However, things did not get off to a great start for Jurgen Klopp and co., when some poor defending led to Hal Robson-Kanu putting the hosts in front after just 15 minutes:

    When Mohamed Salah bent a curling effort from the edge of the box past Sam Johnstone shortly after the half-hour mark, though, it looked as though the Reds were ready to bounce back to secure all three points:

    And that is exactly what Liverpool went on to do, thanks to something of a miracle in second-half injury-time.

    The visitors notched over 25 attempts at goal on Sunday. However, only five were on target, whilst hardly any really tested Johnstone.

    West Brom even looked as though they had regained the lead in the second-half, only for their 2nd to be correctly ruled out for offside, after Matt Phillips was adjudged to have been standing in Alisson’s line of sight, some way offside:

    And, in the end, Liverpool’s top-four hopes were saved via the most unlikely of sources.

    Deep, deep into second-half injury-time, the Reds won a corner. Alisson – with Klopp aware that nothing but a win would keep his side’s Champions League hopes alive – was given permission to head forward for the set piece.

    And the Brazilian went on to smash home a huge goal, securing all three points for Liverpool, whilst guiding them to within a point of Chelsea, with two games to play.

    The Reds, on paper, also have a much easier end to the season to come, with fixtures vs Burnley and Crystal Palace set to round out their campaign. Chelsea, on the other hand, must face Leicester and Aston Villa.
