2022–2023 English Premier League: Diogo Jota's late goal lifts Liverpool over Tottenham 4–3

Following a chaotic conclusion to their Sunday Premier League match, Liverpool defeated Tottenham 4-3 thanks to a late goal from substitute Diogo Jota.

At Anfield, Tottenham battled back from a 3-0 deficit after just 15 minutes to tie the score at 3-3 with Richarlison's goal in the third minute of extra time.

However, Jota quickly came back to secure a fourth straight league victory and strengthen Liverpool's chances of at least qualifying for the Europa League.

On Thursday, Tottenham managed to tie Manchester United after falling down 2-0.

After scoring three goals in the first 15 minutes (Curtis Jones, Luiz Diaz, and Mohamed Salah), the Londoners seemed to be sealing another comeback tie.

Son Heung-min scored a second goal in the 77th minute, while Harry Kane restored parity for Spurs in the 39th.

Richarlison came off the bench to equalise, but Jota's goal ended the visitors' jubilation.

With a game left to play, Liverpool moved up to fifth place and is now two points ahead of Tottenham.

A week after giving up five goals in the first 21 minutes against Newcastle, Tottenham had a similarly disastrous start at Anfield. Jones scored in the third, Diaz doubled Liverpool's advantage in the fifth, and Salah scored from the penalty spot to win the game.

Kane started Spurs' comeback by matching Wayne Rooney's record of 208 Premier League goals, and Son and Richarlison added goals in the second half.

Jota's game-winning goal, which was his fifth in four games, still offers Liverpool a slim opportunity to contend for a top-four spot.

Despite playing one more game, Liverpool is seven points behind fourth-place Manchester United.
