Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle United – Premier League – 13th December 2015
A 95th minute equaliser from Divock Origi secured a share of the points for Liverpool against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, after a dramatic clash at Anfield.
The hosts started well, with captain Jordan Henderson impressing back in the starting line-up. And it was the England man who would open the scoring on 21 minutes, finishing off a superb team move. However, just nine minutes later, the Baggies were on level terms, when Craig Dawson netted after Simon Mignolet had flapped at a corner. The first-half would end in controversy, with Tony Pulis and his team left fuming after a Jonas Olsson goal was very belatedly flagged for offside.
In the second period, Olsson eventually got on the scoresheet for real, with the defender glancing home from a Chris Brunt corner on 71 minutes. That goal looked to set to send Jurgen Klopp’s charges to a disappointing home defeat. But then, well into injury time, Origi struck, with his shot deflected off Dawson and into the back of the West Brom net, leaving Klopp and co. to celebrate like they’d just beaten Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-final.
The draw sees Liverpool go ninth, a point ahead of Merseyside rivals Everton while West Brom are 13th, four points behind the Reds.
