Laura Woods responds after glum reaction to Liverpool goal caught on camera

TNT Sports presenter Laura Woods has responded after she was caught looking 'absolutely dejected' following Alexis Mac Allister's wonderstrike for Liverpool against Sheffield United on Thursday night.

Mac Allister's stunning 76th-minute strike restored the lead for the Reds in dramatic fashion at Anfield after an unexpected equaliser from the Premier League's bottom club had initiated a nervy and frustrating spell for the Jurgen Klopp's side.

Darwin Nunez opened the scoring for Liverpool in the first half with an unorthodox finish. However, with many expecting Klopp's men to spend the rest of the night boosting their goal difference, the hosts were left frustrated by the Blades' low block.

Instead, it was Chris Wilder's men who scored next against the run of play after an unfortunate Conor Bradley own goal.

That equaliser on 58 minutes would have sparked celebrations much further afield than Sheffield, with Arsenal and Manchester City fans also keeping a close eye on the game in the title race.

However, Mac Allister's Gerrard-esque screamer put the Reds back in front 18 minutes later, leading to wild celebrations from most of those fortunate enough to be watching on at Anfield.

TNT Sports presenter and known Arsenal fan Woods was not one of the many sent into ecstasy by Mac Allister's goal.

'I look absolutely dejected'

During the live coverage, she was caught by cameras as they panned past the dugouts looking stony-faced as the Liverpool bench celebrated wildly.

After the game, as the footage was replayed, she joked: β€œI look absolutely dejected! I’m not - it was a really brilliant night here at Anfield.”

On Friday she posted a screenshot on X (Twitter) showing her at Anfield with her hood up, arms folded with a glum-looking expression as Klopp and Adrian embraced in the foreground.

The image was accompanied simply by the caption "Morning" along with an upside-down smile and laughing face emojis.

Mac Allister's thunderous goal to restore the lead, followed by Cody Gakpo's late header, ensured Liverpool finished they night top of the table (two points clear ahead of Woods' Arsenal), with just eight games to play in the 2023/24 Premier League season.

Speaking to TNT Sports after the final whistle, Mac Allister was asked if his strike on Thursday was even better than the rocket he scored against Fulham earlier in the season.

He replied: β€œI don’t know. We were discussing that. Both of them were very good but the most important thing is that it helped to win the game. Against Fulham they told me it was lucky so I had to prove them wrong.”
