How Liverpool won 9-goal EPL thriller… away from home

Adam Lallana struck in the 95th minute to ensure Liverpool defeated Norwich City 5-4 in a nine-goal premier league thriller at Carrow Road.

The Reds were on course to win 4-3 after James Milner put them ahead 15 minutes from time, only for Sebastien Bassong to equalise with a clinical 20-yard effort just before injury time.

Firmino started Liverpool’s day well as he opened the scoring in the 18th minute after a crisp passing move, but then, feeble defending allowed Norwich back in.

After Dieumerci Mbokani equalised for his team in the 28th minute, Steven Naismith put the hosts ahead as he scored another debut goal against Liverpool – having done so at previous club – Everton.

Alberto Moreno conceded a needless foul on Naismith to allow Wes Hoolahan give the hosts a two-goal cushion, but Henderson, Firmino and Milner turned the game on its head. Drama unfolded when Bassong found Simon Mignolet’s bottom-left corner with a sweet strike.

Fortunately for Klopp’s men, substitute Lallana, who had earlier set up Roberto Firmino to draw Liverpool level at 3-3, was on hand to secure maximum points, as his perfectly controlled left-footed volley bounced into the ground and over Norwich’s goalkeeper to settle an incredible game and leave Kop faithfuls in pure ecstasy.
