How Fabio Carvalho made Liverpool history with last-gasp winner winner vs Forest

The Portuguese talent enjoyed an outing to remember on Wednesday


Liverpool starlet Fabio Carvalho etched his name into the club’s history books late on Wednesday night.

Jurgen Klopp’s men, of course, marked their return to action a short time ago.

On the back of an altogether shaky opening to the campaign, the Reds welcomed Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United to Anfield, hopeful of building on a 9-0 drubbing of Bournemouth last time out.

And, when all was said and done, make it two wins on the spin is precisely what Liverpool managed.

With a full 97 minutes on the clock on Merseyside, it appeared as though proceedings were set to peter out into stalemate, after Roberto Firmino dragged the hosts on level terms on the hour mark.

With the very last kick of the game, though, Klopp’s troops proved their mettle once more.

After a scrappy sequence in the Newcastle penalty area, the ball dropped to youngster Fabio Carvalho, who lashed a fine finish home off the underside of the crossbar, sparking manic celebrations across Anfield in the process:

And, not only that, but in the process of bagging his 2nd Premier League goal, Carvalho secured for himself a noteworthy club record.

As per statisticians Opta, the summer arrival at Liverpool is now the youngest player to ever score a winner in Reds colours beyond the 90th minute of a Premier League fixture.
