If you were having any troubling waking up early Saturday, Liverpool and Norwich City took care of that.

The Reds and Canaries staged a 9-goal thriller which saw both sides come from behind and a pair of stoppage time goals.

Liverpool came out on top 5-4 after Adam Lallana canceled out Seb Bassong’s late would-be equalizer at Carrow Road. James Milner also scored.

Both Reds were seeking the right words after the final whistle.

From the BBC:

Lallana — “A strange afternoon. I was just delighted to get the three points in the end. When they scored you just think it was going to be one of those days. A massive three points for us.

“That [scoring] was one of those moments in your career that just happens, you go with your flow.”

Milner —  “It was ridiculous at times. To show the character to come back, and then the disappointment of conceding in stoppage time, it would have been easy to roll over but we went again and got the result.

What a game, and perhaps a springboard. If confidence and resilience wasn’t high before, it will be now. And with a trip to Leicester on the way, what a time to feel strong!
