Mamadou Sakho could afford a smile with Simon Mignolet and Christian Benteke after Liverpool were thrilling 5-4 winners at Norwich City.
Adam Lallana netted his first Premier League goal of the season in the 95th minute after Sebastien Bassong appeared to have salvaged a 4-4 draw for the home side in Saturday’s early kick-off.
Liverpool had broked the deadlock thanks to Roberto Firmino’s 18th-minute goal before Dieumerci Mbokani and Steven Naismith put the Canaries ahead before half-time.
Wes Hoolahan extended Norwich’s advantage from the penalty spot after Alberto Moreno brought down Naismith but Firmino and James Milner put the Reds 4-3 up with 15 minutes to go.
And Benteke, Mignolet and Sakho all appeared notably relieved after Lallana’s late winner earned the visitors three points minutes after Sebastien Bassong’s goal.
