Late own goal takes Liverpool back top! Liverpool moved two points clear at the top of the Premier League after Toby Alderweireldâs late own goal. Toby Alderweireldâs late own goal gave Liverpool a dramatic win over Tottenham as they moved back to the top of the Premier League.
Roberto Firminoâs first-half header from Andrew Robertsonâs superb cross gave the home side the lead. Tottenham, who remain third, levelled when Lucas Moura swept in Christian Eriksenâs pass after the break. But Alderweireld turned the ball past his own goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to give Jurgen Kloppâs side a vital win.
Visitors Tottenham looked on course to earn a point â and even wasted chances to go in front â after Lucas Moura deservedly equalised Roberto Firminoâs first half-header for the home side.
Liverpool were on the brink of losing ground to Manchester City â 2-0 winners at Fulham on Saturday â until the title race took another dramatic twist in the closing moments in front of the Kop.
Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris failed to hold Mohamed Salahâs routine far-post header and the ball ricocheted into the net off Alderweireld.
It was sheer elation for Liverpool, who are now two points clear of City having played a game more, but misery for Spurs, who are in a real fight for a top-four place and were left to regret Moussa Sissokoâs glaring miss when through on goal minutes earlier.
