Liverpool scoring late goals to win matches is not an accident.
It’s borne out of a mentality Jurgen Klopp has instilled in his side; his ability to make tactical tweaks in the second-half of matches; the fitness of his teams and the their outstanding, never-say-die attitude.
On Saturday, we saw it again – with an injury-time James Milner penalty confirming the three points v Leicester City,
Manchester City then went on to lose against Wolves on the Sunday and are now eight points behind us in the Premier League table.
LFC fansite LFCTransferRoom tweeted after the game that throughout Klopp’s four-year tenure, the Reds have scored an unbelievable 24 stoppage time goals, securing 75 points from losing positions in total.
That’s insanely good.

More results like the one versus Brendan Rodgers’ side will be needed this term if we’re to stand a chance of Premier League glory.
We’ve started exceptionally, but it’s a very long road and there’ll be bumps along the way.
All we can do at the moment is focus on one game at a time and try to increase the lead we have on Pep Guardiola’s outstanding team.
