A last-gasp own goal from Toby Alderweireld following a flap from Hugo Lloris sent Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League.
Liverpool were given a gift in the Premier League title race when a mistake from Hugo Lloris handed them a dramatic 2-1 win over Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday.
Lucas Moura’s second-half goal cancelled out Roberto Firmino’s opener to leave the Reds facing the prospect of being behind Manchester City on goal difference, only for Toby Alderweireld to turn the ball into his own net in the 90th minute when Lloris failed to hold a Mohamed Salah header.
With City beating Fulham comfortably on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp’s side were in need of a positive result to keep the pressure on the champions, who play again at home to Cardiff City on Wednesday.
It looked as though Lucas’first league goal of 2019 would be enough to secure the visitors a valuable point in their top-four chase and give City the boost they wanted, only for Lloris to throw away the result.
