Liverpool went away with the whole three points in a thrilling, crazy, dramatic match at Norwich, winning 5-4.

Liverpool had opened scoring with Brazilian Roberto Firmino’s goal on 19th minute. But before the half-time, Norwich responded with two goals of their own and nine minutes  on resumption of play added a third goal.

Two minutes after, Liverpool opened a flurry of goals as well, with  Jordan Henderson scoring on 56th minute and Firmino recording a brace with another goal on 63rd minute. Then 12 minutes later, James Milner shot Liverpool ahead of the hosts with a fourth goal.

But the hosts would not be denied of a share of the spoils as Sebastien Bassong netted an equaliser on the dot of the 90th minute. The drama was however not over as additional five minutes of play time was added.

That gave Liverpool another opportunity to strike home the fifth goal and hand over to  manager Jurgen Klopp a significant victory on the road. The victory made Liverpool vault over Crystal Palace to register as 8th on the table, with 34 points.
