Liverpool fans will never forget their 5-4 win over Norwich back in January 2016. Jurgen Klopp was still a novice in the Premier League after arriving as manager in late 2015 and the game was arguably his first blockbuster moment in England. It was a crazy game at Carrow Road, with Roberto Firmino kickstarting the scoring on 18 minutes. Soon after, Dieumerci Mbokani equalised for Norwich, before Steven Naismith fired the Canaries into the lead shortly before half-time. Wes Hoolahan made it 3-1 on the day from the penalty spot on 54 minutes, but Jordan Henderson was on hand to halve the deficit one minute later.
Firmino and James Milner then had Liverpool leading 4-3 going into injury-time and that's where the real madness occurred. Sebastien Bassong equalised in the 92nd minute, before none other than Adam Lallana struck with virtually the last kick of the game to spark scenes of pandemonium in the away end. With Lallana officially leaving Liverpool today, we've decided to remember that iconic winning volley and to make things even more emotional, the video below has it set to the theme song from Titanic - enjoy! Absolute scenes, with Christian Benteke actually breaking Klopp's glasses during the celebrations on the touchline. The final years of Lallana's six-year spell at Liverpool have been severely hindered by injury, but he was a key man during Klopp's first years at the club. His selfless attitude, wide array of passing, tireless work rate and elegance on the ball were so crucial to the club's midfield and he will always have a special place in the hearts of Reds fans. Lallana is set to join Brighton on a free transfer for next season, with The Athletic reporting that the 32-year-old will take a significant cut on his £100,000-a-week wages to join the club. The Seagulls are also offering the midfielder the possibility moving into a coaching role once his playing days are over. News Now - Sport News
