FULL TIME! Scenes at Carrow Road! Lallana nets a 95th-minute winner through Lallana, following a brief stoppage-time equaliser from Bassong! Liverpool beat Norwich 5-4, with Klopp's men fighting back against all the odds! That's all that we have time for, but what a game! We hope to see you again next time.
A. Lallana
Yellow Card
Liverpool
90' + 5' Lallana gets a booking for taking his shirt off in celebrations, not that he will mind!
A. Lallana
Goal
Liverpool
90' + 5' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! UNBELIEVABLE! ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE! Lallana is found in space inside the penalty area, before a looping, bouncing half volley effort into the top right-hand corner! Liverpool lead again!
C. Jerome
Assist
Norwich City
90' + 2' Jerome is involved in the equaliser, justifying Neil's decision to get the ex-Birmingham man involved off the bench.
S. Bassong
Goal
Norwich City
90' + 2' GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! BASSONG HAS DONE IT! The defender lashes a low finish into the bottom corner from just outside the box! Great effort! Liverpool's players don't get out quickly enough to make the block!
90' + 2' Mignolet is forced to claim a long pass into the box, with the Belgian goalkeeper looking fairly assured of himself this afternoon. Benteke tries to break following a long ball, but the substitute is caught straying offside.
90' + 1' We're into the first of five minutes of stoppage time at Carrow Road.
S. Caulker
Alberto Moreno
Liverpool
90' Caulker is thrown into the fray for the dying minutes, with Moreno taking his leave after a rather sluggish second half.
88' Olsson drives down the left-hand side, but Clyne tracks back well to slide in and deny the substitute. Norwich angle a cross in from the same flank, but Can is present at the near post to guide the ball away from danger.
86' Less than five minutes remain at Carrow Road, with Liverpool pressing on again! Firmino chops in onto his right foot, before firing a low drive goalwards, but Rudd merely has to crouch down and make a comfortable save. Nearly a hat trick for the Brazilian.
84' Mbokani manages to bring the ball down on the edge of the penalty area, but his attempted shot loops awfully into the air! Moments later, the same striker is subject to a long pass forward, but Mignolet is quick off his line to gobble it up!
C. Jerome
S. Naismith
Norwich City
82' Jerome comes into the game for the home side, with the ex-Stoke striker looking to inject a little more energy into the forward line. Now would be the time to make a big impact!
80' Only 10 minutes remain for Norwich to fight back, but it'll take a huge physical and psychological effort from Neil's men. Time is running out, but the home fans are starting to get behind their players and urge then towards the finish line.
78' Liverpool can now sit back and prey on mistakes from the hosts, with Norwich struggling to get any kind of control in this game. The away outfit are happy to slow things down with slow possession, asking Norwich's tiring players to keep working hard and pressing.
C. Benteke
J. Henderson
Liverpool
76' Benteke comes into the game, with it appearing that Klopp isn't done with pressing on. Firmino will drop back as a result, with the Belgian striker slotting into the attack.
J. Milner
Goal
Liverpool
75' GOOOOOOOOOOOAL! MILNER COMPLETES THE COMEBACK! The England international races into the clear, before sprinting into the penalty area. Rudd comes to close the angle, but the Liverpool midfielder strokes a neat finish inside the near post! Unbelievable stuff!
75' Can is forced to hook a near-post clearance away, as Norwich remind Liverpool than they're still in this game with a rare break. Martin is unable to catch Milner on the counter moments later, with the ex-Aston Villa man racing into the clear.
74' Moreno plays a neat one-two with Firmino, before racing to receive the ball on the periphery of the penalty area. The Spaniard takes aim with his left foot, but can only fizz a low shit into the awaiting gloves of Rudd.
72' Bassong makes a timely clearance at his near post, with the former Spurs defender now having to sit on the edge of his own penalty area. The home side are sitting in and inviting plenty of pressure on, which could prove to be a risky approach given that there are still 20 minutes on the clock.
Martin Olsson
W. Hoolahan
Norwich City
70' Olsson comes into the game and will slot in on the left-hand side, in what is something of a consolidatory change from the hosts.
M. Jarvis
N. Redmond
Norwich City
70' Redmond takes his leave, with the former Birmingham winger struggling to get into the match throughout.
67' Firmino is the target of a looping delivery into the penalty area, but Pinto tracks his man well to ensure that the danger is cleared well. Lucas then tries to thread a long through ball into the path of Henderson, but Martin steps out to make a vital interception.
65' It is the away support that is making all of the noise now, with the Canaries struggling to find their feet. Lallana is slid in behind, before racing into the box and forcing a save out of Rudd, but the linesman's flag was raised for offside anyway.
A. Lallana
Assist
Liverpool
63' Lallana whips a sumptous ball in from the left-hand side, with Klopp's first substitute having the desired impact.
Roberto Firmino
Goal
Liverpool
63' GOOOOOOOOOOOAL! FIRMINO STRIKES AGAIN! The Brazilian striker is picked out in the penalty area by a swirling delivery, before having the peace of mind to lift a neat finish over Rudd and into the back of the net! Coolness personified from the ex-Hoffenheim striker.
62' Norwich are sat in a precarious position at the moment, with the Canaries needing to take the sting and momentum out of the game. Rudd takes a while with a goal kick, which may be a theme of the final half an hour.
61' We're into the final half an hour at Carrow Road, with the atmosphere getting a little bit cagey. Norwich are sat deep, with the visitors seeing much more of possession at the minute. Neil's men are happy to concede territory and sit deep.
A. Lallana
J. Ibe
Liverpool
59' Lallana comes into the fray for the Reds, with Ibe struggling to have any real impact since the restart for the second half. Klopp is seeking to make the alterations required to stage a masterful comeback.
57' Liverpool are suddenly high on confidence once again, with Klopp's men having the belief that they can fight back and get on level terms. Firmino has been vital to the opening two goals, but the introduction of Benteke could pose different questions for Martin and Bassong.
Roberto Firmino
Assist
Liverpool
55' Firmino is involved once again, with the Brazilian proving to be silky customer in the final third.
J. Henderson
Goal
Liverpool
55' GOOOOOOOOOOOAL! HENDERSON MAKES IT 3-2! The ex-Sunderland midfielder sweeps home a lovely finish from outside the area, with Rudd unable to extend enough to get a hand to it!
W. Hoolahan
Penalty Goal
Norwich City
54' GOOOOOOOOOOAL! HOOLAHAN CONVERTS! The Irishman slots a neat finish over the sprawling body of Mignolet, with the hosts now having a vital two-goal cushion!
52' PENALTY FOR THE HOSTS! Norwich have a reasonable handle on the contest, with the potential to counter at real pace. Naismith and Pinto combine, before the former is set on his way into the box! Moreno gets the wrong side of the Scot, who goes down and earns a spot kick!
50' The Canaries continue to put on the early pressure, despite it being Liverpool who have all of the catching up to do. Redmond looks to scamper down the right flank, but Moreno stands up to the Englishman brilliantly. Klopp's outfit need to find a foothold in this clash quickly.
48' Norwich push on from the off, though Neil's men are clearly conscious of how many yellow shirts that they are pressing forward with. Mbokani holds the ball up brilliantly, before releasing Pinto down the right-hand side, but the former Dinamo Zagreb defender can only loop a swirling effort wide of the far post!
46' We are back underway in the second half! Klopp's men need to muster up at least two goals to take home three points this afternoon, which looks to be beyond the Reds at present.
HALF TIME! The hosts go in ahead, after a brilliantly competitive first half at Carrow Road! Mbokani and Naismith have got the Canaries sitting pretty, despite the Reds getting the scoring underway through Firmino. Liverpool have some work to do.
45' Rudd is forced to lash a hurried clearance away, after a terribly weighted back pass from Brady! Firmino was sniffing about, but the Norwich goalkeeper was quick off his line to deny the Brazilian. There are two minutes of stoppage time.
43' Norwich have turned this game on its head, with Naismith pulling all of the strings for his new club. The Canaries sit back from kick off, with the hosts now able to sit back and play on the break. Klopp might have some thinking to do at the half-time interval.
W. Hoolahan
Assist
Norwich City
41' Hoolahan plays an inviting pass down the right channel, with Norwich linking up well on the peripheries of the penalty area yet again.
S. Naismith
Goal
Norwich City
41' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! NAISMITH MAKES IT 2-1! The former Everton makes his mark immediately, after being found overlapping down the right-hand side! He drives into the box, before lashing a low finish across goal and into the far corner! 
40' Less than five minutes remain in the first half for either side to try and get their noses back in front, with Norwich pushing on. Brady drives to the left byline, but the left-back is denied well by Clyne, who is happy to concede a corner. The resulting set piece is easily headed away at the near post.
39' The clock is ticking down towards the interval, with Norwich looking to force the issue. Naismith is putting in plenty of hard work, with the Scotland international definitely looking to repay the faith put in him by new coach Alex Neil. The hosts break down the right, with Hoolahan cutting infield, but the Irishman is brought down by a hard tackle.
37' Mbokani lifts a lovely ball into the penalty area, with Howson trying to take it down neatly, but Lucas steps in to leather a clearance behind for a corner! The resulting set piece looks for the aforementioned Congolese striker, but Sakho vitally intervenes ahead of the Norwich goalscorer. In the aftermath, Milner is lucky to get away with a shove on Naismith.
35' Norwich make progress down the right-hand side, but a delivery into the box comes to nothing. Neil's men work the ball nicely down the other flank moments later, but some intricate play between Naismith and Brady doesn't quite come off. The former Everton midfielder is leading by example at the moment.
33' Mbokani comes back onto the field after extended treatment, though Jerome is warming up as a precaution on the sideline. Narrowly over 10 minutes remain in the first half, with both sides enjoying periods of dominance after scoring their respective goals.
31' All square again now, with the atmosphere suddenly picking up at Carrow Road! The home fans are making plenty of noise, with that goal from Mbokani sending them into raptures. A set piece proves to be Liverpool's undoing yet again. Play is quickly back underway, before there is a long stoppage for a poor challenge from Lucas on the goalscorer.
G. Dorrans
Assist
Norwich City
29' Dorrans swung a looping effort into the box, but the ex-West Brom midfielder can only watch as Mbokani does some magic!
D. Mbokani
Goal
Norwich City
29' GOOOOOOOOOOOAL! WHAT A FINISH FROM MBOKANI! The former Dynamo Kiev striker manages to take the ball down deep inside the opposition penalty area, before backheeling a cheeky effort beyond Mignolet! Pure inspiration and the Canaries are level!
28' Sakho concedes a free kick on the right-hand side, with Mbokani being sent tumbling to the turf after a push. The hosts have the chance to load the box as a result, but Toure heads the danger away. Norwich keep the pressure on, with Martin whipping in a cross, but Mignolet gets up ahead of Naismith to punch clear!
26' Wide from Moreno! The ex-Sevilla left-back is teed up for the resulting free kick, but can only send a swerving shot way beyond the far upright! Since taking the lead, the Reds have definitely been on top, with Norwich having no staying power in the opposition penalty area.
24' Liverpool continue to cause problems, with Clyne picked out advancing down the right-hand side. The Englishman slides a pass into Firmino, with Bassong forced into pulling down the Brazil international. Contact was just outside the penalty area, with the Norwich defender fortunate to not give away something a little more serious.
22' Milner has a chance of his own! Firmino manages to slid a through ball into the path of the ex-Leeds midfielder, but the Englishman can only force a one-versus-one save out of Rudd! The resulting corner is taken short and then whipped into the box, but Martin clears at the near post.
20' Mbokani does brilliant to hold the ball up, before Norwich get some joy down the left-hand side. A swirling delivery is launched into the box by Brady, but no yellow shirts can make contact! Yet again, Toure does just enough to scramble the danger clear.
J. Milner
Assist
Liverpool
18' Milner slid a neat pass in behind enemy lines, with Brazilian doing brilliantly to turn home a finish from a tight angle.
Roberto Firmino
Goal
Liverpool
18' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! FIRMINO MAKES IT 1-0! The Brazilian is fed into the penalty area down the left channel, before squeezing home the tightest of finishes! A trickling finish bobbles under Rudd and makes its way into the back of the net after kissing the inside of the far post!
17' Naismith has the chance to slide a neat pass in behind enemy lines for Mbokani to chase, but the ball from the Scottish midfielder is cut out. Moments later, Firmino is fed over the top by Moreno, but Bassong puts enough pressure on the Brazilian attacker to ensure that the former Hoffenheim man can only hook a looping effort way over the bar!
15' Toure and Sakho continue to be dominant in the air, with Norwich only having any luck in the wide areas of the field. After a shaky start, the away outfit are getting their foot on the ball and stringing together a few attacks. Firmino is the target of a long through pass from Henderson, but Rudd sweeps up. Moments later, Hoolahan sees a shot blocked.
13' Liverpool work the ball from right to left, before Ibe does well to beat Ivo Pinto to the byline! The Englishman cuts back a neat cross, but it doesn't pick out a red shirt, with the away side finally showing some signs of life. Naismith is picked out and looks to counter, but Sakho fouls the former Everton midfielder.
11' Naismith is presented with a chance on the left-hand side, but the Scotland international is unable to swivel and shoot on the edge of the box. Brady is found overlapping as a result, but a cross from the ex-Hull defender is well blocked. Klopp's men are still on the back foot.
9' Naismith releases Redmond down the right-hand side, before Ivo Pinto plays a neat one-two with the ex-Birmingham winger. A delivery into the box is hacked away by Toure, with Mignolet glued to his line. Norwich have been bright in the opening stages, with Liverpool struggling to get going.
7' Naismith is penalised for a very late challenge on Lucas, with both sides very competitive in the opening minutes. Redmond sprints down the right flank, before attempting to whip a cross in from the byline, but Moreno stands up to his man well. Chances have been few and far between thus far.
5' Redmond tries to flick a header towards Mbokani, but the Congolese forward is denied by Moreno easily. Liverpool counter, with Clyne countering down the right-hand side, but the ex-Palace right-back is outmuscled well by Brady while trying to overlap.
3' Norwich get the ball out to the left flank, but Henderson does brilliantly to cut a pass out on the edge of the penalty area. Firmino is leading the line for the visitors, but Ibe and Milner are dropping deep to aid their full-backs.
1' We are underway in the first half at Carrow Road! There's perfect conditions for some football this afternoon, with no excuses for either side as to why they can't get the ball down and play some neat stuff.
Liverpool substitutes: Benteke, Caulker, Lallana, Allen, Flanagan, Ward, Joao Carlos.
Liverpool starting line-up (4-3-3): Mignolet; Clyne, Toure, Sakho, Moreno; Can, Lucas, Henderson; Milner, Firmino, Ibe.
Norwich substitutes: Ruddy, Jerome, Jarvis, Klose, Mulumbu, Olsson, Odjidja-Ofoe.
Norwich starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Rudd; Ivo Pinto, Martin, Bassong, Brady; Dorrans, Howson; Naismith, Hoolahan, Redmond; Mbokani.
TEAM NEWS: Jordan Ibe and James Milner will start in the wide areas, with Roberto Firmino preferred to Christian Benteke up top. Kolo Toure continues in the heart of the back four, with Lucas Leiva holding in midfield. Few changes from Klopp, with Simon Mignolet in goal after recently signing a new contract. John Flanagan is among the substitutes today.
TEAM NEWS: Declan Rudd starts in goal for the hosts, with Ivo Pinto getting a start at right-back after joining from Dinamo Zagreb this month. Wes Hoolahan is inserted into the midfield, with new signing Steven Naismith also starting from the off. Nathan Redmond is deployed out wide, with Dieumerci Mbokani starting alone up top. Gary O'Neil is missing due to suspension.
Liverpool have only won one of their last four competitive games, with that one victory coming against Exeter City in the FA Cup. The Reds should have the potential to turn their form around, with the Canaries scoring merely once during their last three outings. Three points should keep the visitors in the hunt for European football.
Hello and welcome to the Premier League's early kick off, with Liverpool travelling to Carrow Road to face Norwich. The hosts are on a three-game losing run, after falling to consecutive top-flight defeats against both Stoke and Bournemouth. Jurgen Klopp's men, meanwhile, will be looking to recover from an undeserved 1-0 loss at the hands of Man United.
