Klopp Is Proud That Liverpool Beat Fulham 4-3

LIVERPOOL, England: Liverpool scored two late goals within a minute including Trent Alexander-Arnold’s winning goal in the 88th minute before overcoming Fulham 4-3 in the English Premier League action late last night.

Wataru Endo struck in the 87th minute, while Alexis Mac Allister’s opener and an own goal by Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno following a stunning Alexander-Arnold free-kick lifted Juergen Klopp’s men to second in the table with 31 points.

“Honestly it’s mental strength,” Alexander-Arnold told Sky Sports.

“A very up and down game. Leading twice, then clearly behind with about five minutes to go, got the equalizer and then the winner.

“It was an incredible match, full of emotions. Just so happy to get the win and manage to deal with the challenge of the opponent.”

Liverpool are two points behind leaders Arsenal, while Manchester City, who drew 3-3 with Tottenham Hotspur, are third on 30 points. Fulham is in 14th place.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a game with so many exciting goals,” Klopp told Sky Sports.

“We scored amazing goals today, but we conceded three times and we have to say that too. We did very well in this game, but it’s 2-2 and deservedly so at the break.”

Fulham looked capable of ending Liverpool’s unbeaten record at Anfield in the league since October 2022 before Mohamed Salah fed Endo who shot hard from distance.

After rushing back into the middle, Alexander-Arnold met Kostas Tsimikas’ header to fire home the winner from the corner of the penalty area.

“I already guessed it, watching the ball come towards the edge of the goal,” said Alexander-Arnold. “I thought I was just trying to get the shot right but obviously it hit the net. You can see how much this goal meant.”

Harry Wilson, Kenny Tete and Bobby De Cordova-Reid scored for Fulham who came back two goals down.
