The Reds had to win in the Midlands to keep pace with Manchester City, who can restore a three-point advantage with a win over Wolves on Wednesday.
The game started off in the most frantic fashion with two goals inside the opening six minutes.
The Frenchman's cross was met by Douglas Luiz, whose header was originally saved by Alisson only for the rebound to fall at his feet for a simple finish.
Jurgen Klopp's side were dealt a blow in the first-half as Fabinho limped off with a hamstring injury.
But the Merseyside outfit pushed on in the second-half, searching for the goal that would decide their Premier League fate.
Every Liverpool supporter in the world will have their fingers and toes crossed tomorrow night as City travel to Molineux.
