Sensational Alisson Winner Keeps Liverpool’s Season Alive

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson produced a stunning injury-time headed winner to snatch a 2-1 victory at West Brom, which keeps the Reds' top-four hopes alive. Liverpool had thrown everything at Sam Allardyce's already-relegated side but by the 95th minute they still had not been able to find a second goal, after Mohamed Salah had cancelled out Hal Robson-Kanu's opener. However, the biggest twist was to come, with Alisson sent up for a corner and brilliantly heading home Trent Alexander-Arnold's set-piece. The Brazilian, whose father tragically died earlier this year, was visibly emotional at the final whistle as Klopp embraced him amid the Reds' celebrations. The victory keeps Liverpool's Champions League qualifying ...

Man City vs Chelsea: Guardiola Reacts to Aguero’s Penalty Miss at Etihad

Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola  has reacted to Sergio Aguero’s shocking penalty miss during Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at the Etihad on Saturday.
