Second half madness keeps Liverpool on top

The home match against Luton Town was a special one for Liverpool. This match was scheduled for the upcoming weekend, but it interfered with the EFL Cup final. Many Liverpool already booked their EFL Cup final ticket and it looked like the team was preparing for the final too. Jurgen Klopp rested quite a few players who were in doubt due to small injury problems. Nevertheless Liverpool managed to keep the three points at Anfield and secured their position at the top of the table for at least another week and a half.

Early setback for the Reds

The promoted Luton Town has been seen as one of the favourites to go down immediately this season. During the course of this season they’ve shown they are willing to fight for another season of Premier League football. Liverpool has been one of the teams who found out how tough Luton Town can be. In the away match, a late goal by Luis Diaz was needed to get away from Kenilworth Road with a point. At Anfield it was once again Luton Town who took the lead in the game. Ogbene opened the score in the 12th minute. Right from that moment people started wondering if Klopp rested too many players. Underestimation is never a good thing in the Premier League. The 0-1 lead for Luton remained on the scoreboard for the entire first half. Despite Luis Diaz getting some clearcut chances to score the equaliser.

Dutch delight for Liverpool

After a first 45 minutes with a Luton Town and missed chances, the Dutch changed everything for Liverpool in the second half. Virgil van Dijk equaliser in the 56th minute and two minutes later Cody Gakpo gave the Reds the lead. Both players assisted by Alexis Mac Allister. With the lead on the board, Diaz found his shooting boots back when he doubled the lead in the 71st minute. Harvey Elliot eventually scored the final goal in the 90th minute, to give Liverpool a 4-1 win. Thanks to these three points, Liverpool is now 4 points ahead of Man City and five ahead of Arsenal. Both teams get the opportunity to close the gap on the weekend, when Liverpool will play the Carabao Cup final.
