The Reds came back from behind to reclaim the Premier League’s second spot with a thrilling victory.
Liverpool pulled off a thrilling 4-3 victory against Fulham in a match that had fans on the edge of their seats until the final whistle. Trent Alexander-Arnold was the hero of the day, scoring a crucial goal in the dying moments to secure a memorable comeback for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
First half: A tale of two wonder-goals
The game started with Alexander-Arnold putting Liverpool ahead with an unstoppable free kick that crashed into the net off the underside of the bar. The former Liverpool star turned commentator, Stephen Warnock, couldn’t help but marvel at the strike, describing it as “one of the best” of the Premier League campaign.
However, Liverpool’s celebrations were short-lived as Harry Wilson, the academy graduate, equalized for Fulham with a well-placed poke from Antonee Robinson’s cross. The game remained evenly poised when Alexis Mac Allister scored a screamer from 25 yards out, a goal that could contend for the season’s best.
Despite Liverpool’s stunning strikes, Fulham managed to level the score just before halftime. Kenny Tete redirected the ball into Caoimhin Kelleher’s net, making it 2-2. The first half concluded with both teams showcasing incredible goals, leaving fans eager for more.
Second half: More goals and a crazy ending
The second half continued the dramatic narrative, with Nunez and Fulham creating chances, but Liverpool’s goalkeeper, Kelleher, stood strong. Fulham took the lead late in the game when Bobby De Cordova-Reid headed in a cross from Tom Cairney, seemingly sealing a memorable win.
However, the game had one last twist. Wataru Endo curled the ball into the top corner, equalizing for Liverpool in the 83rd minute. The stunning finale came when Alexander-Arnold sealed the comeback with a powerful shot from just inside the 18-yard area.
The result leaves Liverpool just two points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal, while Fulham sits comfortably eight points above the relegation zone.
