Liverpool staged a second-half comeback against relegation-threatened Norwich City to keep their Premier League title hopes alive with an eighth successive win in all competitions. The Reds had threatened the Norwich goal countless times but they were stunned into emergency action moments after the interval when Milot Rashica’s deflected strike gave the Canaries hope of a first win at Anfield in 28 years.
Diaz Scores first Goal for Liverpool
Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp had to intervene as he made seven changes to the side to help his side come back. The changes helped the team as they came back from one goal down to 3-1. Sadio Mane acrobatically turned home Konstantinos Tsimikas’ header and Mohamed Salah raced on to a clearance from goalkeeper Alisson Becker to round Angus Gunn and score.
The Egyptian recorded his 17th Premier League goal of the campaign was his 150th in all competitions for Liverpool – making him one of only 10 men to reach that figure for the club. Liverpool’s latest signing Luis Diaz scored his first Premier League goal since joining Porto with a neat, chipped finish to seal the win for the host.
Jurgen Klopp’s side moves to within six points of league leaders Manchester City before the champions’ late game, while Norwich drops to bottom place and is five points from safety.
