The Top 6 Last-Minute Winners From Klopp’s Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side have a habit of scoring in the dying seconds of the game, often getting winners after the 90th minute, here’s the top 6 from the past few years.

6) Milner’s Last Minute Penalty Vs Leicester (19/20)

The Reds sat at the top of the league in October 2019, having not dropped a single point so far in the campaign. Leicester were in 3rd place and looking to remain in the title race with Liverpool and Manchester City, so they needed the points to keep up.

The Reds found themselves ahead at half time until James Maddison found the net in the 80th minute for the Foxes and levelled the score. Shared points looked inevitable at Anfield until Sadio Mane was brought down in the box in the 95th minute, giving Liverpool a chance to steal all three. James Milner stepped up to the ball with ice in his veins, and Liverpool marched on undefeated.

5) Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool (19/20)

Liverpool arrived at Villa Park hoping to maintain their 10-month long unbeaten league record against a struggling Aston Villa. The Reds found themselves behind after just 21 minutes and struggled to break down the Villa defence, looking shakey on the counter-attack and vulnerable at the back.

When the 87th minute arrived with Liverpool still behind, the result looked to be a formality, until Andrew Robertson got on the end of a Sadio Mane cross and levelled the scoreline late on. 7 minutes later, Sadio Mane was involved again, this time getting his head to an Alexander-Arnold corner in the 94th minute to steal all 3 points for the league leaders.

4) Norwich 4-5 Liverpool (15/16)

Jurgen Klopp’s first season at Liverpool signalled the beginning of the team’s transition into the ‘Mentality Monsters’ that we see today. Liverpool’s trip to Carrow Road saw them go 3-1 down in the second half, before fighting back to take the lead less than 20 minutes later through a cool James Milner finish.

With The Reds 4-3 up in the dying moments, an away victory seemed to be a certainty, but Liverpool’s pre-Van Dijk defensive vulnerabilities reared their heads once again. Liverpool failed to deal with a long ball in the 92nd minute, and Sébastien Bassong’s pot-shot flew past Simon Mignolet to bring Norwich level.

Norwich fans were celebrating the draw while Liverpool fans were pondering how it all went wrong until Adam Lallana’s volley bounced over the goalkeeper in the 95th minute to take all of the points.

3) Everton 0-1 Liverpool (16/17)

Merry Christmas, Everton.

Even now, Sadio Mane’s 94th-minute in front of a miserable Goodison Park crowd seems too good to be true. It could not have ended more perfectly, Sturridge’s shot rebounded off the post and left Pickford stranded as Sadio Mane poked home the winner before celebrating with the travelling Kop.

2) Liverpool 1-0 Everton (18/19)

Everton’s December clashes with Liverpool always end in blue tears, as we saw with number 3 on this list. Own goals, routs, hat-tricks, last-minute free-kicks… Just when we thought Liverpool had beaten Everton in every possible way, they went and proved us all wrong.

Realistically, Divock Origi could have one of these lists all to himself. The Belgian centre-forward has made last-minute goals his trademark since this moment vs Everton in December 2018 and hasn’t stopped since.

Van Dijk’s desperate 96th-minute strike sliced off his boot and harmlessly over the bar to see the game out, or so we thought. In reality, the ball dropped into the arms of Jordan Pickford, who misjudged the flight of the ball of poorly that he handed it to Divock Origi, who was stood waiting in the 6-yard box… Liverpool 1-0 Everton (90+6).

1) Liverpool 4-3 Borrusia Dortmund

The fact that this game isn’t Klopp’s greatest European night at Anfield says a lot about how entertaining the team that he’s built actually is. 0-2 down at home at half time left Liverpool 1-3 adrift on aggregate in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Divock Origi was involved again as he made it 1-2 early on in the second half until Marco Reus killed the excitement in the Stadiums as he put home Dortmund’s third. With the score at 4-1 on aggregate, Liverpool needed 3 goals in 25 minutes to go through, which would (under normal circumstances) seem impossible.

In the 66th minute, Philippe Coutinho’s strike got the Reds back into the game, before Mamadou Sakho’s header levelled the score in the 77th minute. Dortmund were still heading through with the away
