Liverpool staged a sensational comeback after they went two goals behind but managed to win the game 5-4. The Swashbuckling match had lots of twists and turns with Liverpool opening the scoring before letting in three goals, after which they managed to take the lead only to be pulled back again by Norwich. But Lallana rifled in his dramatic late finish to cap barnstorming encounter and spark incredible scenes in the away dug-out. All the pros and cons of Klopp’s philosophy was on display during this thrilling encounter.
- Firmino making the most of his chances.
The Brazilian has shown glimpses of his special talent against the top teams like Manchester City, Chelsea and, most notably, in the recent thriller against Arsenal. He was again chosen ahead of Benteke, which goes to show the faith Klopp has on him. He was involved in the majority of the attacks that Liverpool could muster in the first half. Used once again in centre-forward position, his touch, awareness and inventiveness was clearly visible in his two well-taken goals. He has been in good form with 4 goals in the last three EPL matches. Given Firmino’s form, the pressure on Benteke increases even more.
