In the end it was a close shave, but Liverpool’s 3-2 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday saw the Reds hang on to the summit of the Premier League table — much to the delight of the Travelling Kop.
The Anfield faithful, who made the round trip to the South East en masse, saw their side race to a 2-0 lead within the opening ten minutes with Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez handing Brendan Rodgers a comfortable cushion going into the second half.
Goals from Gary Hooper and Robert Snodgrass sandwiched another strike from Sterling as things got tense near the end, but it was Simon Mignolet’s save from a Ricky van Wolfswinkel header — atoning for an early effort — that sealed the points as the Reds extended their winning streak to an impressive eleven matches on the trot.
Although the travelling Liverpool fans have always put on a good show, with their first title in 24-years within touching distance, there’s been an added impetus to the usual boisterous revelry coming from the stands. If they’re celebrating this hard after downing the Canaries, you can just imagine what Chelsea is in for this weekend…
