Jota’s late goal helped Liverpool win against Spurs at Anfield.

On Sunday, Liverpool defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-3 in the Premier League to increase their chances of making it to Europe with a last-second goal from Diogo Jota.

Within the first 15 minutes, Liverpool had a 3-0 lead for the second consecutive Sunday. The visitors returned as Tottenham’s defense broke down, and replacement Richarlison’s late header seemed to give his team an improbable point. This was Andy Robertson’s 250th appearance for the Liverpool team.

Liverpool looks threatening from the start of the game. The first goal came with the header of Curtis Jones which Trent Alexander Arnold brilliantly assisted. In the 3rd minute, Trent chipped the ball at the back post of the Spurs’ defense where Curtis Jones was unmarked at the time. He scored quickly with the header past Forster’s goal.

Liverpool’s commanding start was extended by Mohamed Salah’s penalty, before Harry Kane cut the lead with his 208th Premier League goal. Tottenham’s striker is tied with Wayne Rooney for the Premier League’s joint second-highest all-time scoring total, trailing only Alan Shearer. Kane’s goal was followed by late goals from Son Heung-min and Richarlison in an incredible finish capped by Jota’s winner.

Tottenham was once again in a mess after giving up five goals in the opening 21 minutes against Newcastle. Colombian winger Diaz extended the advantage in the fifth minute after Tottenham’s feeble defenders failed to intercept Liverpool’s runners. After sprinting into the area after receiving a feed from Salah, Cody Gakpo brought a cross back from the byline for Diaz to volley in from close range.Gakpo was knocked to the ground by Cristian Romero’s careless challenge in the 14th minute, giving Salah the opportunity to score from the penalty spot.

Richarlison, a former forward for Everton, drove the Tottenham supporters into a frenzy when his glancing header rebounded into the goal, but their jubilation quickly turned to disappointment when Jota defeated Fraser Forster with a skillful patient shot.

Tottenham has 54 points from 34 games, while Liverpool has 56 points from 33 games. The fourth-placed Manchester United, who have played one fewer game than Liverpool, are still seven points ahead of them. The clubs who place fifth and sixth will probably earn a spot in the Europa League the following year.
