Liverpool defeat Tottenham to keep CL race alive

ABU DHABI, 30th April, 2023 (WAM) – Liverpool defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-3 in a Premier League thriller on Sunday to snatch the fifth position and keep their Champions League race alive.

Curtis Jones and Luis Diaz netted inside the opening five minutes in a quickfire lead that was increased by Mohamed Salah’s penalty on the quarter-hour mark, though the Londoners rallied and struck back through Harry Kane before the break.

Son Heung-min reduced their deficit and Richarlison then equalised in stoppage time, but substitute Jota produced a sublime low finish in front of the Kop to reclaim victory and move Liverpool up to fifth in the table.
