Stoppage-time own goal hands Liverpool thrilling 3-2 win over QPR

LONDON (AP) — Queens Park Rangers gifted Liverpool a 3-2 win in the Premier League on Sunday after defenders Steven Caulker and Richard Dunne scored own goals at Loftus Road.

In an explosive finish, with four goals in eight minutes, substitute Eduardo Vargas looked to have secured a point for QPR after he scored in the first minute of second-half stoppage time to make it 2-2.

Undeterred, Liverpool launched a late counterattack which ended with Caulker putting into his own net to seal the victory for Brendan Rodgers' team.

Liverpool substitute Philippe Coutinho had put Liverpool 2-1 up in the 90th minute before Vargas equalized.

After Mario Balotelli blazed over the bar in the 62nd, Dunne netted the opener at the wrong end for his 10th career own goal.
