Mohamed Salah bundled home a last-gasp stoppage time winner to seal a dramatic 2-1 victory for Liverpool against Tottenham and keep their Premier League title hopes alive.

Liverpool took the lead thanks to a brilliant Andrew Robertson cross, picking out Roberto Firmino in space whose header bounced into the turf and then the net beyond a flailing Hugo Lloris.

Then, after a spell of dominance for Jurgen Klopp's side where they might well have added to their lead, Tottenham regained their footing.

Midway through the second half, after a quick free-kick from Harry Kane set up Kieran Trippier in space on the right-wing, the ball fell into the box via Christian Eriksen for Lucas Moura to swat home the equaliser.

Moussa Sissoko missed a golden opportunity to steal victory for Spurs in the dying moments after going clean through on goal on his weak foot before blazing over.

Dele Alli then came close as Spurs rattled Liverpool in stoppage time, but it was then Kop hero, Salah, who capitalised on Lloris' blunder to score a crucial winner and provide another twist in the title race.
