They got off to a fast start, going up 3-0 in just 15 minutes, but Tottenham once more displayed incredible grit, especially in the second half to make it 3-3. However, there was still drama as Diogo Jota scored from a tight angle with a few seconds left after Tottenham made a mistake on defence.

The goal caused a commotion in the Liverpool technical area, as Klopp ran for a short distance before stopping and clutching his hamstring. Despite being hurt, Klopp still received a yellow card for approaching fourth official John Brooks and confronting him.

Following Sunday’s victory, Klopp stated, “I’m not sure it’s a hamstring.” It might also be an adductor. It is hurtful. The Liverpool manager quickly acknowledged that his celebration was pointless.

Match highlights: Liverpool 4-3 Spurs

Tottenham sacrificed three goals to Liverpool in the opening 15 minutes, equalised in stoppage time, and then gave up a winner to Diogo Jota in the 94th minute as the Reds prevailed in a thrilling game 4-3 at Anfield.

Spurs struggled to get the game going once more as Curtis Jones and Luis Diaz gave Liverpool a 2-0 lead after six minutes. Later, just under ten minutes later, Mohamed Salah scored from the penalty spot to give Liverpool three goals after Cristian Romero fouled Cody Gakpo in the penalty area.

Given the opportunities Ryan Mason’s team would go on to make, Tottenham’s poor start turned out to be crucial, as Spurs eventually levelled in stoppage time. After Harry Kane’s goal back, Spurs saw good chances for Heung-Min Son and Dejan Kulusevski go begging, and Son and Romero both hit the post in the second half.

With less than 15 minutes left, Son made it 3-2, setting up a thrilling conclusion. Richarlison, a former Everton striker, then equalised in the third minute of stoppage time with his first Premier League goal for Spurs.

Jota, however, took advantage of Lucas Moura’s errant back ball right after the game’s opening kickoff to finish past Fraser Forster and electrify Anfield. Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, injured his hamstring while sprinting to the touchline to celebrate the goal.

Ultimately, Liverpool held on to win, moving them up the standings past Tottenham into fifth place while still trailing fourth-place Manchester United by seven points despite having played one more game.
