Fulham Surprised with Loss vs Liverpool as Benayoun Scores Late

Liverpool got a chance to move top of the Premier League with a dramatic injury-time winner from Yossi Benayoun at Fulham. But this was only temporary as Manchester United later win against Aston Villa.

The Reds struck very late after hitting the woodwork four times in the match. Andrea Dossena hit the bar twice - each time with a header, Xabi Alonso volleyed against the bar and Fernando Torres dragged a shot against the post.

But on the 92nd minute, Benayoun drove in from 12 yards to grab the win for the Reds. Benyoun's strike was met with wild celebrations on the touchline as Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez and his staff released pent-up emotions after they had been frustrated viewers for more than an hour-and-a-half.

The picture of Benayoun's celebration after his goal is below.
