Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp told his players to find a way to win against Norwich City at half-time.
This is according to midfielder Lucas, who has admitted that the Reds were 'happy' to leave Carrow Road with all three points on Saturday.
Liverpool went in at the half-time interval trailing their Premier League counterparts 2-1, but, despite falling even further behind during proceedings, managed to secure a 5-4 win thanks to a 94th-minute strike by England international Adam Lallana.

Lucas, who has become a key player under the guidance of the revered coach, certainly left the field of play in great spirits.
The Brazilian midfielder, as per the Liverpool Echo, stated: “Of course, we are happy to get the result. Especially the way it was at half-time.
When asked about what Klopp told the players at half-time, Lucas revealed: “The manager just said we had to find a way to win. We did it. Of course, it’s not the best way to win a game but maybe it was what we needed.”
