Mohamed Salah’s 150th Liverpool goal helped keep his side’s title challenge on track as they came from behind to beat Norwich 3-1 at Anfield.

Sadio Mane’s overhead kick levelled the score after Milot Rashica’s deflected shot gave the Canaries a surprise lead.

However, it was Salah who gave the home side the lead with a clever shot that wrong-footed the defence before a maiden goal for January signing Luis Diaz wrapped up all three points for the home side.
