Liverpool faced West Bromwich Albion and needed victory to keep track of qualifying for the Champions League, especially after Tottenham’s victory.
Klopp’s men started losing 1-0 and Salah, with the assistance of Mané, put the provisional tie. With only half a minute left in the game, Alisson went to the corner (kicked by Trent Alexander-Arnold) and managed to head the ball, giving his team the victory and placing it higher in the standings.
With this result, Liverpool is in fifth place (63), one behind Chelsea (64). Leicester have 66 points and United 70. City, champions, are already through. Behind Klopp’s are Tottenham and West Ham, four points away (59), and Everton (who plays today), has 56. Let us remember that the first four qualify for the Champions League in the Premier League, but when the final Chelsea and Manchester City, either of them is guaranteed entry for the next edition, so the fifth position is also available. Thus, unless Tottenham manages to get four points and the reds four or less in the next two days, at Anfield the anthem of the Champions League will play again.
