Robbie Brady had given Norwich an early lead with his first goal for the club, before Diafra Sakho equalised in the 33rd minute, and Nathan Redmond must have thought he had won the game for Norwich when he gave them the lead in the 83rd minute, but Kouyate spared West Ham’s blushes by scoring in the 3rd minute of extra time to earn his team a draw. The win would have seen Norwich win at Upton Park for the first time in 26 years, but it was not to be.

Gesture’s goal from long range reduced the deficit to 2-1, and Villa must have thought they had the momentum needed to equalise, but Daniel Sturridge had other ideas when he scored his second and Liverpool’s third of the game after good work from Philippe Coutinho. Gestede also scored his second of the game with a fine header in the 71st minute, but Liverpool held on for a precious win.
