. Liverpool delights Anfield

The Reds once again showed that they have a huge heart and nerves of steel to extend their flawless record at Anfield this season. However, their eleventh win in as many matches, in all competitions, seems like a miracle.

Fulham, a modest fourteenth, achieved another outstanding performance by scoring three goals against Liverpool’s defense, which had only conceded four until then in the league and in the Europa League.

Trailing until the 80th minute, Jürgen Klopp’s team threw all its forces into the battle and turned the tide with superb goals from Wataru Endo (87th, 3-3) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (88th, 4-3) in the euphoria of a jubilant stadium, rocked by the legendary “You’ll Never Walk Alone”.

“I’m really sorry for Marco Silva (Fulham coach, ed), I think when they scored 3-2, they thought they had won, but this is Anfield and we are still here,” commented the German manager to the BBC.

This last-minute victory allows Liverpool (31 points) to take second place ahead of Manchester City (3rd, 29 points) against Tottenham on Sunday in the final match of the 14th round. League leader Arsenal remains within reach, two points ahead.

Fourth-placed Aston Villa (29 points) managed to snatch a point from their trip to Bournemouth (2-2) by equalizing in the 90th minute thanks to Ollie Watkins, served by Moussa Diaby.

. Chelsea finally wins at Stamford Bridge

Mauricio Pochettino was angry with his players last weekend at Newcastle (4-1), but the Chelsea coach got a good response on Sunday against Brighton (3-2) at home.

His “Blues”, down to ten men for the second time in a row, held on despite the thrills of a lively finish, marked by Joao Pedro’s late goal (90th+2).

“The team is tired, we are all tired, but overall we are happy. After Newcastle, we had to show a different side,” he reacted on BBC.

At Stamford Bridge, Enzo Fernandez scored his first goal in the Premier League on his 31st appearance (17th, 1-0), on an acrobatic assist from Benoît Badiashile, who started in central defense alongside Thiago Silva. And the Argentine world champion added a penalty double (65th, 3-1).

Brighton, eighth with 22 points, is now under pressure from ninth-placed West Ham, with one point less after their draw at home against Crystal Palace (1-1).
