Latest Liverpool news: Late goal against Tottenham extends Liverpool’s incredible record
Liverpool left it late to defeat Tottenham 2-1 at Anfield on Sunday.
The Reds had taken an early lead thanks to Roberto Firmino but could not capitalise on their domination in the first half.
Spurs took advantage of our poor finishing in the final third and equalised in the second half thanks to Lucas Moura.
The away side looked more dangerous after the half-time break, but we got the last laugh as Mohamed Salah’s header was parried onto Toby Alderweireld for an own goal.
This was another 90th-minute winner for the Reds, and we have now scored 33 winning goals after the 90th minute in the Premier League.

This is eight more than second-placed Arsenal and 11 more than Manchester United.
Reds get the job done in the final minutes
This wasn’t the only late winner we scored this season with Divock Origi scoring the winner against Everton in the Merseyside derby.
Daniel Sturridge also scored a late goal in a 1-1 draw with Chelsea earlier in the season while Roberto Firmino scored a 90th-minute winner against PSG in the Champions League.
The Reds have this never-say-die attitude and it has kept us in certain games which we should never have had a chance of winning.
Tottenham should have been leading in the second half on Sunday, but we remained in the tie somehow.
