Following Dieumerci Mbokani's back-heeled opener, a slick team move finished off by Steven Naismith and a Wes Hoolahan penalty, Liverpool turned up the heat in the second half to tear past a complacent Norwich side and recover the 3-1 deficit.

Jordan Henderson, Roberto Firmino and James Milner all found the back of the net to send the Reds 4-3 in front until Sebastian Bassong's 92nd-minute equaliser sent Carrow Road into hysteria.

The drama was far from over, though. Five minutes into stoppage time and a cross from Emre Can found it's way to Adam Lallana, who struck the ball into the turf and past a hapless Declan Rudd. Cue a moment of madness as Jurgen Klopp and co. swarmed England international in jubilation. 

EVERTON 3-4 STOKE CITY (28/12/15)

Having beaten Manchester United two days previously, Mark Hughes' side continued their rich form with a performance to remember at Goodison Park.

The partnership of Marko Arnautovic and Xherdan Shaqiri proved particularly effective, the Austrian setting up his Swiss counterpart to slot past Tim Howard and break the deadlock.

Romelu Lukaku scored a lovely goal to restore parity six minutes later, but the goal of the day came on the stroke of half time - and it was that man Shaqiri again.

Bojan's sweeping pass in behind Everton's defence found the 24-year-old who, on the half volley, delightfully lofted the ball over Howard and into an open net.

Lukaku and Gerard Deulofeu both scored in the second half to put the Toffees ahead, yet two late goals from Joselu and Arnautavic - the second of which a penalty - secured all three points for the Potters.


Everton conceding injury-time goals has become an unwanted trend for manager Roberto Martinez this campaign.

The Toffees netted two first-half goals through Ramiro Funes Mori and Lukaku and looked to be sailing towards their sixth win of the season until the final ten minutes, where they lost all concentration.

Substitute Adam Smith scored the goal of the game with a 25-yard rocket before Junior Stanislas equalised in the 87th minute.

Bournemouth's jubiliation was soon deflated when Ross Barkley swivelled and scored in the 95th minute but, in spectacular fashion, Stanislas claimed his second of the game in the dying embers of injury time, evoking unparalleled raptures from the home fans. 


The fact either side managed to score three goals in one game was dramatic in itself.

A harsh handball decision saw Wayne Rooney dispatch a penalty in the ninth minute before Jesse Lingard doubled his side's lead half an hour later.

Three points looked all-but-certain for the Red Devils until Georginio Wijnaldum's delightful finish just before half time handed Newcastle a lifeline.

Aleksandar Mitrovic then levelled the scores after winning and scoring a penalty, but fans' cheers were soon silenced when Rooney found the net in stunning fashion from outside of the box.

And just when all seemed lost for the hosts, Paul Dummett stepped up in the 90th minute to crash a late equaliser past David de Gea and earn a point that could prove the difference between relegation and survival this season.

LIVERPOOL 3-3 ARSENAL (13/01/16)

Thirty-six attempts at goal speaks volumes about just how exhilarating Liverpool's clash with Arsenal was at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino opened the scores before Aaron Ramsey's fine finish to beat Simon Mignolet at his near post brought the Gunners level.

The aforementioned Brazilian then claimed his second of the game with a superb curling strike from 20-yards out, but Liverpool's celebrations were once again short-lived when Olivier Giroud latched onto Ramsey's corner.

The second half was equally as frantic, Giroud finishing with aplomb ten minutes in from inside Liverpool's 18-yard box.

With each passing minute it seemed as though all three points would be returning to north London until Joe Allen's 90th-minute volley beat Petr Cech and crowned what was an unforgettable night on Merseyside.
