Liverpool favourites for Top 4 Finish after Alisson Heroics

Top 4 Finish Latest - The fight for the last two places in the Premier League Top 4 is set to go right down to the wire after Alisson's sensational winner for Liverpool against West Brom on Sunday afternoon.

The 2-1 win for Liverpool means that it's still a three horse race for the remaining two Champions League places. Chelsea and Leicester didn't have league matches last weekend, due to their participation in the FA Cup final.

Alisson Keeps Liverpool in hunt for a Top 4 Finish

I don't think it's any surprise to say that the moment of the weekend in the Premier League was Liverpool keeper, Alisson's stoppage time headed winner against West Brom.

Not winning would have been a huge blow to Liverpool's chances of a Top 4 finish, hence the Reds risking all by sending their keeper up in the dying seconds of a match they were drawing 1-1.

The win for Liverpool means that they are now massive odds on with the bookmakers to make the Top 4, despite currently sitting in fifth place.

Top 4 Finish Betting

This is basically down to the face that third (Leicester) and fourth (Chelsea) play each other on Tuesday. Meaning one, or both will have to drop points.

Jurgen Klopp owes a huge debt of gratitude to his goalkeeper for keeping his side in the Top 4 hunt.

Not since the days of the great Peter Schmeichel have we really witnessed goalkeepers scoring goals like that.

Speaking of Peter Schmeichel, and his son Kasper had a decent weekend as well. He pulled off a remarkable save to help his side win the FA Cup final (1-0) on Saturday, preventing a certain equaliser from Mason Mount in the 88th minute.

It certainly was a save worthy of winning any cup final.
