Liverpool scored a stunning 3-2 win over Queens Park Rangers with four of the five goals coming in the last seven minutes capping an astonishing finale to their Premier League match at Loftus Road today.

Liverpool needed the help of two own goals for the win that lifted them to fifth in the table and left QPR bottom after a mesmerising finish.

Liverpool’s winning goal came in the fifth minute of added time after Steven Caulker scored Rangers’ second own goal with virtually the last kick of the game.

Richard Dunne scored the first own goal to put Liverpool 1-0 ahead in the 67th minute before Eduardo Vargas equalised for QPR after 87 minutes with a close-range shot.

But Liverpool, who will need to show a marked improvement when they play European champions Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday, went 2-1 ahead with 15 seconds of normal time remaining when Philippe Coutinho scored with a curling shot that took a deflection.

Rangers were still not finished as Vargas headed them level at 2-2 in the second minute of stoppage time.

With time almost up, one final Liverpool counter-attack in the 95th minute ended with Caulker putting through his own goal to give Liverpool all three points.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers told Sky Sports: “QPR certainly didn't deserve to lose. I thought we were very, very lucky to get the win.

“We showed tremendous character and were a little bit better in the second half but QPR definitely deserved something from the game.”

Chelsea lead the standings with 22 points from eight games after their 2-1 win at Crystal Palace yesterday while Manchester City, who beat Tottenham Hotspur 4-1, are second with 17.

Liverpool have 13 while QPR remain bottom on four, the same number as Burnley who lost 3-1 at home to West Ham yesterday.
