The memory of Russian swimwear model Kinsey Wolanski running onto the field in the 2019 UEFA Champions League final at Wanda Metropolitano is still fresh, and the incident in today’s clash at Anfield was posted by Capital Liverpool editor Chris Chambers on his official Twitter. Check it out below-

By the 86th minute, as James Milner came on field as a substitute for Reds striker Roberto Firmino, a bare chested Norwich fan was seen dashing onto the pitch, taking his Hugo Boss shorts down, and making a dive, moments prior to security officials who rushed to the spot to escort the man out.

Klopp’s side were already ahead with four goals by the end of the first half, with Norwich skipper Grant Hanley opening up the score sheet with an own goal, and Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Divock Origi soon followed after.

The Canaries, who were promoted to the Premier League after winning the EFL Championship last season, were only satisfied with a single goal, which came in second half, from their Finnish striker Teemu Pukki, who netted the ball at the 64th minute. Final score was 4-1.
