'Absolutely Glorious' - Liverpool Fans Rave Over Thiago After Audacious 50-Yard No-Look Pass Against Norwich

Liverpool fans are raving over Thiago Alcantara after the Spaniard pulled off an audacious 50-yard no-look pass in their win over Norwich.

Liverpool came from behind to beat the Canaries 3-1 at Anfield on Saturday to remain firmly in the hunt for the Premier League title.

The Reds were trailing 1-0 on the hour mark after Milot Rashica had given Norwich a shock lead shortly after the half-time interval.

But the introduction of Thiago in the 62th minute helped spark a dramatic comeback from Liverpool, with goals from Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz’s first for the club securing all three points for the home side.

Liverpool fans were particularly impressed with the performance of Thiago, who underlined his quality with a sensational no-look pass late in the game.

After picking up the ball in midfield, Thiago sprayed the perfectly-timed pass out to Kostas Tsimikas on the left wing while looking in the opposition direction.

Former England international Jonathan Woodgate was among those to praise Thiago after full-time.

“Thiago absolutely ran the game after coming on. He quickened the pace and slowed it down when he wanted to," Woodgate told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“He made the difference. That change from Jurgen Klopp won them the game.”

Liverpool supporters on social media were also quick to praise the Spain international, who is becoming a fan favourite at Anfield after a somewhat slow start to his career on Merseyside.

“Thiago Alcantara was absolutely outstanding when he came on. A truly special player,” wrote one fan on Twitter.

Another added: “For the umpteen time Thiago Alcantara is an absolutely glorious footballer.”

Liverpool are now just six points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City after the defending champions suffered a shock 3-2 defeat to Tottenham on Saturday evening.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have a game in hand and can move to within three points of City if they beat Leeds United at Anfield on Wednesday.
