Sadio Mane – 7

Mane was facing his net when the header from Tsimikas came to him just outside the opponent’s six-yard box. He made the most of the chance with a flipping overhead kick to equalize for Liverpool, kicking off the Reds’ comeback. Mane threatened offensively, nearly netting a second, pulling a shot just wide minutes later. He had struggled on the ball early in the match, being dispossessed two times, but a solid second half allowed him to finish the match with a 93% pass success, one key pass, four total shots, and his 109th goal for the club.

Luiz Diaz – 8

He struggled against the Norwich defense in the first half, being pulled off the ball many times. But, as it was for much of the Reds squad, the second half was a different story. Diaz netted his first Premier League goal for Liverpool on a clinically clean collect-and-score off a long play-in pass from Jordan Henderson.

He finished the match with five key passes, 85 pass success, four total shots, and a successful tackle.

Mohamed Salah – 9 (Man of the Match)

Salah weaved through the Norwich defenders like they weren’t even there on Saturday. Gifted Tsimikas a beautiful cross for what easily could have been the opening goal, but Tsimikas smashed it over the crossbar. In the second half, Salah indeed came to life, scoring his 150th goal for the club from outside the box off a long ball from Alisson, remaining composed with just two Norwich defenders between him in the goal to take the lead for the Reds. He nearly scored a second just moments later, dancing through the defense and putting a shot just wide of the back post. Salah finished the game with eight shots and six key passes in addition to his milestone goal.

Substitutions

Thiago (62′ for Oxlade-Chamberlain) – 8

Thiago came on early in the second half and immediately and smoothly integrated himself into the Liverpool squad, desperate to come from behind against Norwich. Thiago finished the match with a stellar 94% pass success, one key pass, and was an absolute game-changer for the Reds, being so much more productive in the second half than they were in the first. There may not be an exact stat for composure, but Thiago would lead in it on Saturday if there were.

Divock Origi  (62′ for Keita) – 6

Origi was relatively quiet after coming in for Keita early in the second half. Managed one shot on target from close range and a few passes, but not much else.

Next. One to watch: Liverpool to step up interest in Ajax superstar this summer. dark

Takumi Minamino  (90′ for Diaz) – N/A

Hi there Takumi, nice to see you!
