(Associated Press) — LIVERPOOL, England Diogo Jota, who came on as a substitute, scored the game-winning goal in the nick of time to give Liverpool a 4-3 victory over Tottenham in the Premier League match they played on Sunday. Wild Finish as Liverpool Beat Tottenham 4-3
At Anfield, Tottenham was already down 3-0 after only 15 minutes of play, but a goal scored by Richarlison in the third minute of stoppage time in the second half brought them back to tie the game at 3-3.
However, Jota responded almost immediately to ensure a win, making it four wins in a row in the league, and boosting Liverpool's chances of qualifying for the Europa League at the very least. Wild Finish as Liverpool Beat Tottenham 4-3.
When Thursday's game against Manchester United ended in a 2-2 draw, Tottenham had come back from a 2-0 deficit to earn it.
After Curtis Jones, Luiz Diaz, and Mohamed Salah scored within the first 15 minutes of the match for the Londoners, it appeared as though they would be able to salvage another comeback draw. Wild Finish as Liverpool Beat Tottenham 4-3.
Spurs were able to get one back thanks to Harry Kane in the 39th minute, and Son Heung-min added another in the 77th minute.
Richarlison scored the equalizer for the away team after coming off the bench, but Jota's goal put an end to the away team's jubilation.
The move propelled Liverpool up to fifth place and gave them a two-point lead over Tottenham with one game in hand. Wild Finish as Liverpool Beat Tottenham 4-3.
A week after allowing five goals to be scored against them in the first 21 minutes of a match, Tottenham had another terrible opening at Anfield, with Jones scoring in the third position of the scoring order.
Diaz doubling Liverpool's advantage in the fifth, and Salah converting from the penalty spot to complete the scoring.
Spurs' comeback was started when Kane tied Wayne Rooney's record of 208 goals scored in the Premier League. Son and Richarlison scored in the second half to complete the turnaround.
The game-winning goal scored by Jota, who now has five goals in as many games for Liverpool, means that the club has a remote possibility of competing for one of the top four spots.
Despite having played one more game, Liverpool is currently in fifth place, seven points behind fourth-place Manchester United.
