What impressed me is that we werent particularly playing at our best level and still managed 4 goals so easily. Our defensive issues are clearly down to the VVD/Matip partnership vs the VVD/Gomez partnership. I think its very clear now to Klopp that Matip needs to start games, Gomez is very talented but he was caught ball watching on quite a few occasions.

Agree and that seemed to be the running theme last year too: we were winning without being at our very best. And 97 points later...!

I’m a bit disappointed in the touching of the “this is Anfield sign”. I only saw two players touch it, or am I missing something?
Yes, just Henderson and Gini. I think if it was special enough for JK to ban it until we'd won something then the players (and JK) should consider it special enough to follow the tradition once we have. It would be a real shame if this now died out completely.

It was what it was.
You have to give Norwich credit, they were bold in their approach and definitely caused us problems. We were rusty defensively but looked sharp attacking wise.
I try not to listen to the pundits comments after the game. If Carragher and Neville have suggested that we were fortunate or that Norwich could have scored 4/5 then so be it, how many more could we have scored if we weren't playing in 3rd gear 2nd half.
As i said at the start of my post, it was what it was, 3 points, 4 goals, positives and negatives, players getting fitness levels up.
The real negative was Alisson’s injury, hopefully the initial diagnosis of a few weeks is true, thankfully that crazy international break may actually prove beneficial for once.

Additionally, anyone got a photo of the mosaic?

a good display against a decent Norwich side who deserved their goal. wish we'd scored a few more though.
