Luis Diaz scored his first Liverpool goal in sublime fashion as the Reds came back to beat Norwich 3-1 at Anfield to keep the pressure on Man City.
AFCON stars Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah also scored in what ended up being a clear win, but that far from tells the full story.
Jürgen Klopp made seven changes from the midweek Champions League win away at Inter Milan, and his side looked disjointed throughout the first hour of the match.
The first half surprisingly ended goalless despite a number of chances, particularly for Teemu Pukki, who struggled to stay onside.
However, the Canaries had some luck two minutes into the start of the second period, with a speculative shot from Milot Rashica deflecting off of Joel Matip and over Alisson Becker in the Liverpool goal.
Klopp, perhaps realising his error in making so many changes, brought on Divock Origi and Thiago Alcantara minutes later, and the difference was instantly noticeable.
Thiago upped the tempo, and in the 64th minute, Liverpool’s title push was back on when Sadio Mane acrobatically bicycle kicked in a Kostas Tsimikas cross to level the score.
And two minutes later an afternoon of frustration came to an end when goalkeeper Alisson fired a dropkick up to Salah, who toyed with Angus Gunn and the Norwich defence before tucking the ball home.
