Liverpool Secure Late Victory Over Spurs in Seven-Goal Encounter; Unbeaten Streak Continues with Four Wins in a Row

Liverpool emerged victorious against Spurs 4-3 after an amazing seven-goal encounter on Sunday. Liverpool opened up a three-goal lead within twenty minutes before Spurs made an impressive comeback and secured victory 4-3. Richarlison thought he had earned Spurs a point after scoring to level at 3-3, only for Diogo Jota to strike late with his stoppage-time winner and give Spurs all three points. Richarlison admitted, however, “3-3 doesn’t feel great but we made do with what we got”. “This result doesn’t feel great but that’s what it is”. “But then Diogo Jota had another idea and finished it off for us,” Jurgen Klopp, who was booked for making a hostile gesture towards a fourth official, declared after Liverpool’s dramatic win against Tottenham. Liverpool are now unbeaten in five games with four consecutive victories to their name and are an unstoppable force in England football DWWWW. Following their victory on Tuesday, The Reds have moved up two spots from 7th to 5th position on the table with 56 points from 16W, 8D, and 9L – four wins in a row now in place and hoping for five come Wednesday against Fulham [0W, 2D, 1L]. But they have won 14 out of 16 midweek matches on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday [14W, 1D, 1L] since Klopp took charge – in terms of midweek fixtures played between Tuesday and Thursday [14W, 1D, 1L]. Luis Diaz should continue in his role alongside Mohamed Salah and Gakpo as part of Klopp’s 4–3–3 system for this fixture against Cottagers.

Fulham Fall to Manchester City Despite Fantastic 25-Yard Strike from Julian Alvarez

Fulham came close to salvaging a point against title-chasers Manchester City but ultimately fell 2-1 behind thanks to Julian Alvarez’s fantastic 25-yard strike (36′). Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri admitted they got off to an awful start against one of Europe’s premier sides and that “we started in the worst possible manner. ” “Immediately upon scoring an equaliser,” Marco Silva lamented after their loss, “we conceded a penalty,” according to Marco. “After we equalized, that moment after being equal was likely our finest moment in this game.” The Cottagers currently hold onto 10th position with 45 points from 13 wins, 6 draws, and 14 losses and are hoping to find success after suffering back-to-back defeats, LWWLL. Unfortunately for them however, only two out of 29 away league games against Liverpool were won [2W, 7D, 20L]. Marco Silva could appear with his 4–2–3-1 formation featuring Carlos Vinicius up front. Aleksandar Mitrovic remains suspended for two more games while Tim Ream was forced off due to an arm injury, while Andreas Pereira will not be available for Wednesday’s fixture.
