Friends, I’m not going to lie to you. Things were getting pretty dark around here.
Liverpool gave up two goals in the first 15 minutes, putting them down 2-0 against Spurs with seemingly no way back. Glaring defensive errors seemed to leave the team shellshocked, and many of us here at TLO were beginning to get despondent.
But fear not, comrades! Mohamed Salah is here to save us.
After breaking up another Spurs attack in midfield, Jordan Henderson hit a long ball from inside the center circle toward Salah on the right flank. Jostling with two defenders, Salah got the ball on his feet and charged into the box. His shot went past Hugo Lloris and dinked the inside of the far post, bouncing in over the line and putting Liverpool on the board.
We’re not out of this yet!
