Things can change in the blink of an eye in football.

And that was clear to see in the Premier League at the weekend as Liverpool came back from behind to win against Fulham and keep pace at the top of the league.

The fans were spoilt in this 4-3 game, especially if you are a neutral, not just from the number of goals but the quality of them and they way they happened.

Liverpool took the lead twice in the first half but Fulham kept on building their confidence and had an answer both times, leaving the scores level at 2-2 going down the tunnel for the break. Liverpool were looking for a winner in the second half but then Fulham delivered a sucker-punch in the 80th minute when Bobby Decordova-Reid scored a header to make it 3-2 to Fulham.

It wasn’t clear if Fulham were going to be able to hold on to their lead but it ended up being a late turnaround with two goals in two minutes from Wataru Endo (87th minute) and Alexander-Arnold (88th minute), who had also scored to equalise against Man City last week.

Trent’s free-kick was special, even if it was given as own goal for coming off Leno, and it helped Liverpool snatch victory from defeat. The celebrations looked like what you’d expect to see in the late stages of the season when the title is on the line. The reason I wanted to play in England as a foreigner was to witness why the English motivation is special every week, and get the experience of that great high.

That’s because every point is so important in this title race as its so close, and because everyone know how strong Man City usually are in the final stages of the season, it’s fine margins and every 3 points is huge.

The race is heating up and there’s going to be plenty more entertainment in store in the run up to Christmas
