Adam Lallana’s injury-time strike saw Liverpool edge a nine-goal thriller at Norwich in one of the most dramatic Premier League games of the season.
Roberto Firmino scuffed the Reds ahead but Dieumerci’s Mbokani’s backheel levelled and Steven Naismith’s debut strike put the home side in front.
Wes Hoolahan added a penalty before Jordan Henderson and Firmino struck.
James Milner put the away side ahead and though Sebastien Bassong netted in added time, Lallana delivered a twist.
The England midfielder’s volley – which was fired into the ground and bounced agonisingly in for the home side – sparked chaotic scenes as Reds boss Jurgen Klopp raced along the touchline to celebrate with his players.
Just moments earlier, Klopp had been visibly incensed by his side’s lapse in allowing Bassong to level – but the change in his mood was fitting in a game which ebbed and flowed like this one.
The German had his glasses knocked off by striker Christian Benteke during the celebrations and later said: “I have a second pair of glasses but I can’t find them. It’s really difficult looking for glasses without glasses.”
