Alexander-Arnold Stars As Liverpool Edge Out Fulham in Seven-Goal Thriller

Trent Alexander-Arnold was again the star man for Liverpool as they secured a remarkable late 4-3 comeback 4-3 victory over Fulham at Anfield.

Despite world-class strikes from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alexis Mac Allister, Liverpool found themselves facing a rare home defeat, only to rally in the final moments.

Fulham, aiming to become the first side to win at Anfield since Real Madrid in February, took the lead after Bobby De Cordova-Reid’s 80th-minute goal. However, Japanese international Wataru Endo ignited Liverpool’s resurgence with an equalizer just seven minutes later.

While Alexander-Arnold’s brilliant free-kick and Mac Allister’s impressive strike were standout moments, Liverpool’s failure to control the game had them staring at an unnecessary defeat. The hosts, despite their early goal-scoring prowess, struggled to maintain dominance, allowing Fulham to score three times away from home for the first time since April.

Liverpool faced a compromised Fulham goalkeeper, Bernd Leno, who played nearly 100 minutes with a bandaged head. Despite numerous attempts on goal, Liverpool only truly threatened Leno when it reached the last-chance saloon territory.

The match showcased Liverpool’s defensive vulnerabilities, as they allowed a team averaging just one Premier League goal per game this season to score three times. Klopp’s side, showing six changes from their midweek win, struggled to find their rhythm.

The thrilling encounter saw ups and downs, with both Luis Diaz and Raul Jimenez contributing to Liverpool’s lead. Mac Allister’s rising drive marked his first goal for Liverpool and the 500th at Anfield in Klopp’s 219th game at the ground.

Despite the late drama, Liverpool’s 100% home record was extended to 11 matches, bringing them within two points of league leaders Arsenal. The victory highlighted both the resilience and the areas for improvement in Liverpool’s current campaign.
