Woodgate insists Thiago introduction won Liverpool game against Norwich

Former England defender Jonathon Woodgate says Thiago Alcantara's introduction "made the difference" for Liverpool in their 3-1 win over Norwich City on Saturday.

The Reds found themselves 1-0 down shortly after half-time after Milot Rashica's deflected strike gave the Canaries a shock lead at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp responded by bringing on Thiago on the hour mark, with Liverpool eventually winning 3-1.

Former Reds scout Woodgate said: “Thiago absolutely ran the game after coming on. He quickened the pace and slowed it down when he wanted to.

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