Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker scored a wonderful header to rescue all three points for his side as they came from a goal down to defeat relegation confirmed Westbrom 2-1 away at the Hawthorns on Sunday evening.
The hosts went ahead after the quarter hour mark after Matheus Pereira found Hal Robson-Kanu who calmly finished put the ball past Alisson for his first goal this season.
With so much hopes hanging on the edge for Jurgen Klopp and his boys, they searched for and got an equalizer through Mohammed Salah and it proved to be the Egyptian’s 22nd striker of the campaign levelling him with topscorer Harry Kane.
Referee Mike Dean had blown for a drop ball after he ran into Fabinho who quickly restarted play and fed Mane who opened up play and few seconds later the scores were tied.
The visitors rallied and toiled for a winner but couldn’t get one as Allardyce’s men kept themselves in the game.
The last kick of the game saw goalie Alisson Becker leave his goal to join the contestants for the corner and it was the Brazilian who headed home Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner.
The goal makes him the first goalkeeper to score for Liverpool in the Premier League and the only goalkeeper to score a header in EPL.
Liverpool are still fifth on the log but are now a point away from 4th placed Chelsea who will be having their hands full when they welcome FA Cup Champions Leicester City to the Stamford Bridge
Manchester United Set To Sign Varane
Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign France centre back Raphael Varane from Real Madrid for an initial 34 million pounds ($46.97 million), British media reported on Monday.
Sky Sports said the fee would rise to 41 million pounds ($56.64 million) including add-ons for World Cup-winner Varane, who has one year remaining on his contract at Real.
The 28-year-old has featured over 350 times for the Spanish club, winning three La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies since joining them in 2011 from French side Lens.
He lifted the World Cup with France in 2018, and played in all four of their games at this year’s European Championship as they were eliminated by Switzerland in the last 16.
Last week, England winger Jadon Sancho joined United from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth 85 million euros ($100.33 million).
Solskjaer Signs New Manchester United Contract
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has signed a new three-year deal, the Premier League club announced on Saturday, Sportivation.com.ng reports.
The Norwegian, who took over from Jose Mourinho in 2018, will stay at Old Trafford until at least 2024, with the option of an extra year.
“Everyone knows the feeling I have for this club, and I am delighted to have signed this new contract,” Solskjaer told the club website.
“It is an exciting time for Manchester United, we have built a squad with a good balance of youth and experienced players that are hungry for success.”
Solskjaer led United to a second-place finish in last season’s Premier League while losing in the Europa League final to Villarreal.
However, the 48-year-old, who this week added England winger Jadon Sancho to his squad, has his eyes firmly on the biggest prizes in English and European football.

“I have a fantastic coaching team around me, and we are all ready to take that next step on our journey,” he said.
“Manchester United wants to be winning the biggest and best trophies and that’s what we are all striving for. We have improved, both on and off the pitch, and that will continue over the coming seasons.

Son Signs New Tottenham Contract
Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min has signed a new four-year deal that will keep him at the club until 2025, the Premier League team said on Friday, according to Reuters.
South Korea captain Son has bagged 107 goals and 64 assists in 280 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham since joining the north London club in 2015 from Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.
The 29-year-old has formed a lethal partnership with England striker Harry Kane, with the pair scoring a combined 40 goals out of the team’s total of 68 in the Premier League last season as they finished seventh.
“It was already a big honour to play here for six years, the club have showed me massive, massive respect and obviously I’m very happy to be here,” Son said in a club statement.
“It’s like home, especially with the fans, the players, the staff. There was no decision. It was easy. I’m so happy to be here and will be so glad to see the fans again soon.”
Tottenham start their 2021-22 league campaign under new boss Nuno Espirito Santo on 15 August with a home game against defending champions Manchester City.
