Liverpool star Takumi Minamino struck early on for the Reds away at Norwich City on Tuesday night.
The Japanese forward was handed a start in the EFL Cup in a heavily rotated squad and made an impression early on.
A Liverpool corner was whipped in which found the head of Divock Origi, who played the ball into a dangerous area.
With pure striker’s instinct, Minamino swivelled on the spot where he was stood and slotted home through the Norwich goalkeeper’s legs.
