Reds goalkeeper Alisson produced one of the moments of the 2020/21 English Premier league and has broken a 129-year record after scoring in the dying minutes to secure Liverpool a much needed win.
The Reds were facing a draw against West Brom, which could have been seen as a disaster in their bid to secure Champions League football next year, before they won a corner.
'OUT OF ORDER': Liverpool player condemned over 'disgraceful' moment
'UTTERLY WRONG': Uproar over Manchester United 'disgrace'
In one of the most sensational moments of this or any Premier League season, Alisson - with his gloves on and unmissable in his black shirt and shorts - found space in the middle of the area to glance a header into the bottom corner from a perfect delivery by Trent Alexander-Arnold and secure Liverpool a dramatic 2-1 win on Sunday.
The unmissable goal came in the 95th minute of extra time and sparked wild celebrations from the players and on the bench.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was speechless in his technical area but later found his voice.
"What a goal, what a worldie and unbelievable goal, the technique was insane... If he is never doing it again, I'm fine. It's a perfect moment," Klopp said.
A goalkeeper had scored for just the sixth time in Premier League history - none of the previous five had been a winning goal.
Liverpool, against all the odds, could dream once again of the Champions League with one week left of the season.
Fans praise historic Alisson goal
Alisson dedicated the goal to his father, Jose Agostinho Becker, who drowned in February after going for a swim on his property in the southern city of Lavras do Sul in Brazil.
"I (wish) he was here to see it. I'm sure he is with God at his side, celebrating," he said.
Fans were rightfully in awe of the unique moment at the end of a gruelling season.
"I hope he was there to see it with God on his side celebrating" 👏
"I don't know how to celebrate!" 😂

1 - In Liverpool's entire club history since they were founded in 1892, Alisson is the first goalkeeper ever to score a competitive goal for the club. Absurd. pic.twitter.com/hpvwGB8fuJ

Mohamed Salah, with his 22nd of the season to join Harry Kane at the head of the race for the Golden Boot, had earlier cancelled out Hal Robson-Kanu's first top-flight goal for almost four years.
Liverpool have 63 points, one behind fourth-place Chelsea and three behind third-place Leicester City with two rounds remaining.
