Fabio Carvalho Scored In The 97Th Minute To Hand Liverpool The Win Against Newcastle United At Anfield

Liverpool overcame a goal deficit to defeat Newcastle United 2-1 on Wednesday night at Anfield (31 August).

Although only five minutes were added to the game, the dramatic late winner from newcomer Fabio Carvalho sparked a contentious discussion on social media among supporters of the opposing team because the game dragged beyond the added time.

The 20-year-old had just enough time during the game to volley home from close range and excite the home crowd.

Twitter erupted with comments from fans, former players, and analysts almost immediately after the final whistle was blown. Everyone had an opinion on whether the additional time on top of the additional time was appropriate or not.

In fact, there was so much discussion surrounding the subject that on Wednesday night, the word “cheating” began to trend.

Alan Shearer, a Match of the Day analyst and former Newcastle United legend, tweeted: “5 minutes of injury time score in the 98th,” along with an emoji of his lips being tightly closed.

Similar arguments were made by several Liverpool supporters on Twitter, who posted screenshots of the instances in which Newcastle wasted time during the game.

Back on the Premier League Sub-Reddit, B2TheFree’s original post received a great deal of support in the form of comments and answers.

Many criticized how modern games are officiated, questioning why there isn’t an official timekeeper to keep track of things in the age of VAR when the referee already has enough to worry about.

Liverpool’s second victory of the current campaign moves them up to fifth in the Premier League, passing their rivals, Newcastle United, who are now in eleventh place.
