Georginio Wijnaldum’s first half stoppage time goal sent Liverpool 1-0 up heading into the break after a nervy 45 minutes against Middlesbrough.
The Reds were in desperate need of some inspiration and the Dutchman provided just that as he expertly fired home from close range following some intricate link up play with Roberto Firmino.
It was a goal that sparked scenes of jubilation and, ultimately, a huge sigh of relief from all those inside Anfield willing the team to go on an secure a place in next season’s Champions League with a win.
Jurgen Klopp’s reaction, in particular, caught the eye as the German failed to hide his delight with a typically intense celebration to his side scoring. His visible emotion summed up just how big a goal it was and just how good a time it came.
Finish the job now, Reds.
