Liverpool won over Norwich City thanks to the manager’s right decision, Juergen Klopp , in the second half. He brought on Thiago Alcantara-Divock Origi and pulled out Naby Keita-Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to increase the intensity of the attack.

But Klopp is reluctant to take credit alone for this success. He said the tactical decision was obtained from discussions with the coaching team.
“That’s the effort of the coaching team, that we bring in the boys but also change the system. It’s very necessary in moments like this, you put all the knowledge you have together,” said Jurgen Klopp, quoted by the BBC .
“The 4-4-2 pattern gives them a deserved challenge to face. Suddenly we have better and more threatening positions. Our reaction was brilliant,” continued the German.
