For once, Tottenham were on the wrong end of a late winner. Mario Balotelli’s 83rd minute goal won it for Liverpool in a 3-2 thriller at Anfield.
Lazar Markovic’s opener was quickly ruled out by Harry Kane at the other end. Moussa Dembele equalised in the second half after Gerrard’s penalty had again given Liverpool the lead.
But it was Balotelli who won it for the hosts with just seven minutes to go, tapping home Adam Lallana’s low cross. Here’s how Twitter reacted.
Balotelli has actually scored. Oh my lord.

No celebration for Super Mario. Just like the postman.

Liverpool don't deserve to win, but we deserve to lose.

"Sorry, my fault." Says 9/10s of Tottenham Twitter after making their jokes about Balotelli scoring against us.

What a game! Spurs players on their knees. They need the nine days rest. Liverpool just about deserved it on chances created. #LIVTOT
