Alberto Moreno was one of the most-relieved Liverpool players after Adam Lallana’s 95th-minute strike sealed a 5-4 win at Norwich City.

The Spanish defender conceded a second-half penalty which allowed Wes Hoolahan to put Norwich 3-1 up after Mbokani Bezua and Steven Naismith cancelled out Roberto Firmino’s opener.

Moreno appeared to foul Naismith but wasn’t punished before seconds later, the former Sevilla man clipped the Scotland international to concede a penalty.

Fortunately for the Europa League winner, Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Lallana all scored after Hoolahan’s penalty to secure a memorable 5-4 win at Carrow Road.

And Moreno was clearly in high spirits as he posed for a selfie with Liverpool starlet Joao Teixeira on the trip back to Merseyside.

Teixeira wrote: “Back to Liverpool after a great win 😂😂😂”

Liverpool’s 5-4 victory was their first Premier League win of 2016 after failing to beat West Ham United, Arsenal and Manchester United in their past three league games.

The Reds face current Premier League leaders Leicester City in their next top-flight game at King Power Stadium next weekend.
