Just when you think you have seen it all in football, Alisson pops up in the opposition box in the 95th minute to score a header any striker would have been proud of, rescuing a vital win for Liverpool in the process.
It was an historic goal regardless of what happens next, with Alisson becoming the first goalkeeper to score in Liverpool’s 129-year history and the first goalkeeper to score a header in the Premier League.
Liverpool’s latest league winner since March 2016 would have been dramatic had anyone scored it, but the manner in which it happened – and the outpouring of emotion which followed from Alisson after a heartbreaking year off the pitch – earned its immediate status as one of the Premier League’s greatest ever moments.
While the goal clearly meant a lot to the player and his teammates, as far as the league is concerned it may only prove important if Liverpool are able to take full advantage by winning their final two games of the season as well.
On paper, their run-in against Burnley and Crystal Palace looks kind compared to those of their main top-four rivals Leicester City and Chelsea, who play each other on Tuesday with at least one of them guaranteed to drop points in that game.
This is exactly the type of fixture Liverpool have struggled with this season, but nothing less than a win will do for them and the nature of their last two results in particular should leave them flying ahead of this contest.
Burnley’s home form is poor while Liverpool’s record on the road has kept their top-four hopes alive in recent months, and the visitors have also won five of their six Premier League trips to Turf Moor in the past.
It is likely to be another hard-fought game in which Liverpool dominate possession but struggle for goals, but at the end of it all we are expecting Klopp’s men to get the job done.
