Liverpool is now 26 games without defeat in the league this season after a narrow one-nil victory over Norwich City.

It was another dominating performance by the champions-elect. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool opened up a 25 point lead at the top of the Premier League with today’s win.

Jurgen Klopp fielded a near full-strength side. The only regular starter on the bench Sadio Mane who was returning from injury.

The first half saw few chances for either side. Awful weather conditions made things difficult for both teams.

With the score ni-nil at half time, Jurgen Klopp’s side came out in the second half and put more pressure on their hosts.

Both Mo Salah and Naby Keita were denied by Norwich keeper Tim Krul.

With the game deadlocked, Klopp signified his intent with the introduction of the missing piece of his attacking trident.

On the hour mark, Sadio Mane came on for Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The change paid off in the 78th minute.

The Senegalese forward acrobatically took control of a Henderson pass. He spun and lashed the ball home.

0-1 to Liverpool secured all three points and the undefeated run continued.

The victory makes it 43 league games without defeat for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
