“I don’t think I ever saw a game with this amount of beautiful goals.”
That was what Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, told Sky Sports after his side held their own Goal of the Month competition with four sensational strikes in a thrilling 4-3 win over Fulham.
The goals started with Trent Alexander-Arnold, who gave Liverpool an early lead with a brilliant free-kick which ricocheted in off both the crossbar and Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
Alexis Mac Allister then hit a thunderous effort from range into the top corner. And, with Liverpool trailing 3-2 in the 87th minute, Wataru Endo curled in an excellent equaliser.
Seconds later, in front of an ecstatic Anfield crowd, Alexander-Arnold completed the catalogue of sensational strikes with a clinical finish.
“Today (Sunday) we scored four worldies and were lucky in the end to win the game, and that tells you everything,” Klopp added to BBC Match of the Day.
“Four goals I have never seen before in one game like this to be honest.”
Fulham manager Marco Silva was equally perplexed.
“It was great, great goals every time,” he told BBC Match of the Day. “Normally that doesn’t happen. They scored four great goals from long distance.”
