Liverpool Fans Are Loving Grant Hanley's 'No-Look Finish' In Premier League Opener
Liverpool fans are absolutely loving Grant Hanley's 'no look finish' in their opening Premier League game against Norwich City tonight.
Liverpool have romped to a 4-0 lead before half-time but the big talking point among fans is Norwich skipper Grant Hanley's own goal, which saw the defender's block from a Divock Origi cross spin past Tim Krul into the Norwich net.
Check out the goal below.
Grant Hanley look away now! :see_no_evil:
The first goal of the new season is an own goal and it's an absolute gift from #NCFC skipper Grant Hanley! :gift:

Liverpool fans are absolutely loving the OG, using the 'no look' moniker often used in reference to Roberto Firmino.
Anfield's first no-look finish of the season.

BT Sport presenter and Norwich fan Jake Humphrey wasn't too thrilled with it however.

Despite the Canaries threat going forward, they have been punished at the back with Hanley's own goal, Mo Salah, Virgil Van Dijk and Divock Origi finding the back of the net within the opening half.
Alisson hobbled off just short of five minutes from half time for The Reds however, with Adrian replacing the Brazilian between the sticks to make his Liverpool debut.
You have to feel for Hanley for this to happen in Norwich's first game back in the top-flight.
