Roberto Firmino scored a dramatic late winner, as Liverpool went clear at the top of the Premier League standings with a 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday at Anfield.
The Brazilian forward bulleted in a 90th minute header from a corner to give the Reds victory and move them three points clear of their opponents at the summit.
Mohamed Salah’s deflected shot on 26 minutes had earlier given the champions a deserved lead after a dominant start, but Son Heung-min equalized soon after against the run of play.
Both teams struck the woodwork in the second period, with Steven Bergwijn hitting the post for Spurs and Sadio Mane hammering against the crossbar at the other end.
However, in the final seconds of normal time, Firmino arrived to meet Andy Robertson’s corner and net in front of the 2,000 elated supporters inside the stadium.
