Alisson provides spectacular assist as Liverpool beat Norwich 3-1

Alisson Becker

Alisson Becker may have provided one of the best assists as Liverpool overcame a 1-0 deficit to beat Norwich City 3-0. The Brazilian found ace Salah who slotted home for the Reds’ second of the game. By scoring in that game, Mohammed Salah has now registered 150 goals in Liverpool colors.

Ad for Alisson, the 29-year-old at present has recorded as many Premier League assists as Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Thiago Alcantara this term.

With the two teams level, the Brazilian took a quick look up the pitch 66 minutes in. Spotting a run, he swung a big right boot at the ball and picked out Liverpool’s number 11. As expected, the Egyptian displayed immense composure to wrong-foot Tim Krul and find the net for 2-1.

Norwich trouble Alisson and Liverpool

Liverpool were expected to dominate from beginning to end. However, things did not according to plan. Norwich City looked a completely different side as they were off from the first whistle. The Canaries launched wave after wave of attack as they took an aggressive approach.

Their efforts bore fruit when new man Milot Rashica shocked everyone by putting his team ahead shortly after the break.

Nonetheless, as it turns out ever so frequently, Liverpool are Liverpool. Although late, the Reds stepped on the gas soon after the 60th minute. Sadio Mane (64′) drew level thanks to an acrobatic finish which seemed impossible to pull off.

Inevitably, man-in-form Mohammed Salah got on the scoresheet just 3 minutes after Mane’s goal. New acquisition Luis Diaz too was able to find the net for his first Liverpool goal.

The win against Norwich takes Klopp’s men within 6 points of leaders Manchester City in the league. With City faltering at Spurs, it seems we have a mouth-watering title race on our hands.
