PHOTO: Excited Liverpool fan kisses steward as Reds clinch victory at Norwich

Norwich Carrow Road 2

One Liverpool fan expressed his relief at his side's victory in an unusual way.

As Liverpool moved a step closer towards their first league win in more than two decades, one fan could barely control himself.

The picture above shows a supporter planting a kiss on a female steward as the final whistle blew, and the tension in the away stand was relieved.

What had appeared to be a comfortable game for Liverpool turned into a very nervy match, as the Reds were pegged back from 2-0 and 3-1 up to see their lead reduced to a single goal.

Norwich produced a spirited second half performance, narrowly losing 3-2, and could easily have grabbed a draw had striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel converted a late header.

Liverpool are now five points clear at the top of the Premier League table with three games to go, with title challengers Chelsea set to visit Anfield next weekend.
