Steve McManaman runs the rule over Liverpool's 5-4 victory over Norwich City
Steve McManaman says Liverpool’s 5-4 victory over Norwich City was the weirdest game that he has seen in a long time.
Roberto Firmino broke the deadlock in the 18th minute before Mbokani Bezua and Steven Naismith scored to hand Norwich a half-time lead.
Republic of Ireland international Wes Hoolahan made it 3-1 from the penalty spot before goals from Jordan Henderson and Firmino levelled the game.
James Milner appeared to have scored a 75th-minute winner but Norwich defender Sebastien Bassong equalised in the 90th minute before Lallana sealed three points in the fifth minute of added time.
Speaking on BT Sport following the nine-goal thriller, McManaman said it was a magnificent result for Liverpool despite the many defensive errors in the game.
“It is the weirdest game I’ve seen in a long, long time,” McManaman told BT Sport.
“I can’t remember many passages of play that were really good watch. It was just mistakes. It wasn’t a vintage performance but it was magnificent three points for Liverpool.”
Liverpool moved up to seventh place in the Premier League table following their 5-4 victory over Norwich.
The Reds make the trip to Leicester City in their next Premier League next weekend.
