Liverpool won 5-4 courtesy of a late strike against Norwich City this weekend.
Liverpool fans may want to get used to last-minute game-changing goals, with the Reds following up their 3-3 draw against Arsenal earlier this month with an unbelievable 5-4 victory against Norwich City this weekend.
Two goals from Roberto Firmino and one apiece from Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Adam Lallana gave Jurgen Klopp’s side a vital victory, with the former Southampton player proving the unlikely hero as his injury-time winner sparked frenzied celebrations from Liverpool fans and players alike.
However, for all Liverpool’s attacking ability – with Firmino finally showing what he is capable of after a slow start to his Anfield career – questions remain regarding their back-line.
After all, Sebastien Bassong’s late goal looked to have given Norwich a 4-4 draw only for Lallana to rewrite the script.
With Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel unavailable, Kolo Toure has been partnering Mamadou Sakho in the heart of Liverpool’s defence, and while the Ivory Coast international is coming towards the end of his career the same cannot be said for the Frenchman.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Liverpool fans thought of Sakho’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
What annoys me about Sakho is his aerial ability. He has soo much strength yet gets beaten in the air so many times. How many goals he has?— Alam (@ssnhqfirmino) January 24, 2016
@JohnJohndel2 Sakho has been strong and clinical this season but cannot defend set peices.— Lallanafied (@BentekeC9) January 24, 2016
Sakho still isn't fully fit and it really shows. Needs working on his weaker foot and clearances. Ball gets stuck between his feet a lot.— Vivek Raju (@VivekRaju8) January 24, 2016
If Lucas could be bothered to get in the right position Sakho doesn't get exposed there. Happened a lot yesterday.— Hamstring FC (@Paisley_Gates) January 24, 2016
Sakho was okayish last night. A 6/10, so, just above average. He hasn't been at his usual level since he came back against Watford.— Ajay Iyer (@Task_Force_1707) January 24, 2016
If ASRoma wants Sakho, just sell... Buy Varane Wouldn't mind if we sell them all , our back line.... Mignolet bin. All upgradable— Clancy (@clancyclancy9) January 24, 2016
If you didn't have a clue about football you would have thought that Kolo was the 16 mill signing and not Sakho IMO— KopAce (@KopAce74) January 24, 2016
