5 vs. 1
Liverpool Substitution
90+1'
 
Liverpool sub: Suarez off for Aspas. He comes off to a standing ovation. Only one minute remaining.
90'
Suarez turns onto his left foot and again aims for goal. It takes a deflection and out for a corner but a goal kick is given.
89'
That’s the third time on the bounce that Norwich have conceded five against Norwich.
88'
 
GOAL Liverpool! This time it is in as Sterling latches onto a Suarez cross to smash home.
87'
Gerrard hits the woodwork! A lovely run from Coutinho and he lifts it into Gerrard who swivels and hits the post!
86'
Only four more minutes of torture plus added time for Norwich to endure here. No prizes who the man of the match will be.
84'
That was Johnson’s first goal for just over a year.
83'
That was a centre forward’s header from Johnson, lovely finish. The only blot on Liverpool’s night. Alberto lets fly but comfortable for Ruddy.
82'
 
GOAL Norwich! It’s Johnson who heads in from Redmond’s cross.
81'
Gerrard concedes a free kick but it’s well defended by Flanagan.
80'
Coutinho goes tumbling from Suarez’s cross and wants a free kick. Nothing given.
79'
Suarez chests down to Gerrard and he lets fly and it’s just wide! Close to five again.
78'
Johnson feeds Suarez and it could easily be five by his standards but he scuffs this one. Almost hard to believe.
77'
Liverpool in cruise control now and Norwich look lost. They really haven’t played terribly either.
75'
Well it now looks as though it could well be another 5-0 and it’s all been down to the brilliance of one man. 11 goals now against Norwich.
74'
 
GOAL Liverpool! And it’s another cracker from Suarez, up over and into the top corner. Poor old Ruddy.
73'
Gerrard wins Liverpool a free kick in a dangerous situation. Suarez over it...
72'
SHOTS ON TARGET: Liverpool 8-3 Norwich
Norwich City Substitution
71'
 
Norwich sub: Fer off for Whitaker
70'
It’s not quite been the cracker of the first half and you can understand that. Twenty minutes for Norwich to do something. Looks unlikely.
69'
 
In the meantime, Flanagan has gone into the book.
Norwich City Substitution
Liverpool Substitution
68'
 
Norwich sub: Hooper on for Elmander. Liverpool sub: Alberto on for Henderson.
67'
Elmander still a little unsteady. May be coming off soon.
66'
Coutinho slips it to Gerrard who times his run to perfection but he side foots it straight into Ruddy’s arms.
65'
Redmond too isolated up front and Johnson shepherds it out for a goal kick.
64'
Good run and cross from Redmond but just too much on it for Elmander.
63'
Save Ruddy! Again it’s Suarez who powers into the box and unleashes a shot but the big man is down to prevent a fourth.
Norwich City Substitution
61'
 
Norwich sub: Murphy on for Hoolahan.
60'
SHOTS ON TARGET: Liverpool 6-2 Norwich
59'
Suarez again at the heart of the Liverpool attack. Henderson lobs it in to Suarez and he tries to head into Gerrard’s path. May have had a nudge in the back there...
58'
Gerrard again close to playing in Suarez and he is furious with his own pass. Such a perfectionist.
57'
Norwich a fingertip away from going 4-0 down here. History repeating itself...
56'
Elmander back up and play continues. Bassong is caught and has three on one but he dallies too long and Suarez is furious. Cracking shot from Allen and a magnificent save from Ruddy!
55'
Elmander jumps with Skrtel and stays down after a slight nudge. Looked innocent enough.
54'
Liverpool are top of the Premier League table for half-time results: they have won ten of the 14 first-halfs played, drew three and lost only one.
53'
Shot from Flanagan flies wide from Gerrard’s pass.
52'
POSSESION: Liverpool 60%-40% Norwich
51'
Great clearance Bennett! Sterling dinks it in and Gerrard launches his head at it but Bennett hoofs clear. Ruddy probably had it covered.
50'
Coutinho hits the free kick and it’s an awful effort, scuffed wide for a goal kick. Gerrard should have taken that!
49'
Coutinho drives at the Norwich box and should have shot but Bennett stands his ground well and makes the tackle. Henderson catches Fer. Free kick.
48'
Chance Norwich! And Bassong heads over a free header from Redmond’s free kick.
47'
Confirmation that Suarez’s first goal was from 42 yards out!
46'
Liverpool starting with early possession. Henderson charges down the left and wins a throw.
45+1'
Elmander passes to Hoolahan but it’s a woeful shot and out for a throw. He’s no Suarez.
45'
We’re back underway here at Anfield and it’s the Luis Suarez show tonight. Not sure what Norwich can do other than hope it’s not another 5-0!
45'
We have two added minutes here.
44'
Liverpool win a late corner. Gerrard delivers but Fer clears to his team’s relief.
43'
Hoolahan picks out Howson and Aggger tands his ground. No free kick.
42'
 
Redmond caught by Gerrard and the Liverpool skipper is booked.
41'
Liverpool pinging passes about now and Norwich can’t get a touch. Great stuff at the moment.
39'
POSSESSION: Liverpool 61%-39% Norwich
38'
Suarez plays in Coutinho but his shot is blocked.
37'
Good run from Sterling and Bennett is forced to clear. Still one way traffic and this match is over. Gerrard shoots and Ruddy saves.
36'
That was also Suarez’s 50th Premier League goal.
35'
That is Suarez’s third hat-trick against Norwich and you’re watching something special here.
34'
 
GOAL Liverpool! And it’s another stunner from Suarez. He flips it up on the edge of the box past Leroy Fer and smashes it on the half volley into the far corner.
33'
Redmond hits the free kick around the wall but Mignolet was well positioned.
32'
 
Norwich will look at the match so far and wonder how they’re 2-0 down. Suarez is the difference. Allen holds back Johnson and goes into the book.
31'
Luis Suarez is now just one goal away from his 50th Premier League goal and his third Premier League hat-trick against Norwich City. Suarez lifts it in but Sterling is offside.
30'
Suarez is aiming to become the first man to score three Premier League hat-tricks against the same club.
29'
If Norwich aren’t careful here it’s going to be another landslide. Johnson shoots wide for Norwich.
28'
 
GOAL Liverpool! Coutinho swings in Liverpool’s first corner and this time it’s simple as Suarez tucks it away from close range.
27'
Liverpool keeping possession well but Gerrard of all people gives it away.
25'
SHOTS ON TARGET: Liverpool 1-1 Norwich
24'
Great ball in from Johnson and Hoolahan gets a left boot on it when he should have taken it on the right and it sails safely over. Good chance.
23'
Lovely ball from Suarez to Flanagan but Martin does well to nip in and clear the danger.
22'
Mignolet again comes out in no man’s land but fortunately Agger is there to clear up. Shot from Coutinho is wide.
21'
POSSESSION: Liverpool 63% - 37% Norwich
20'
Speculative ball from Coutinho but it’s straight into Ruddy’s hands.
19'
 
Lovely little dinked cross from Redmond but it’s smashed away by Agger. Suarez picks it up and Johnson takes him down. Yellow card.
18'
Norwich had started so well but now they have so much work to do. Johnson shoots from range but Gerrard blocks his effort.
17'
Not as if Ruddy was even off his line. Liverpool have now scored at home for the fourth PL match in a row, and Norwich fail to keep a clean sheet for the fourth PL match in a row.
16'
Well not many would have attempted that but Suarez is something special. A goal of the season contender.
15'
 
GOAL Liverpool! And it’s a spectacular strike from distance from Suarez. First time effort about 30 yards out and Ruddy no chance.
14'
Johnson plays in Henderson and it’s another chance but he shoots wide.
13'
Suarez twisting and turning but his final touch is poor and he can’t get his shot away.
12'
That was a lovely ball from Gerrard and he’ll again be vitally important tonight. Liverpool starting to find their feet.
11'
Great crossfield ball from Gerrard to Johnson. He shoots but it’s a good block from the other Johnson. Henderson shoots over the bar.
10'
Henderson tries to play in Coutinho but Bassong is there to hammer it clear for a throw. Liverpool pressing.
9'
Lovely feet from Hoolahan and he gets his shot away, forcing Mignolet to get down and save. Came from a really sloppy pass from Allen.
8'
Brendan Rogers ffuriously scribbling on the touchline. Perhaps some notes of concern early on.
7'
A lot of possession being given away from both teams early on. Already fairly open.
6'
Good cross from Howson but Hoolahan twice fluffs the chance. Mignolet went AWOL after the first cross.
5'
Coutinho took on one man too many and Norwich will not want to concede early here. Great skill.
4'
Johnson shoots but it’s blocked. Norwich holding their shape well early on. Great jinking run into the box from Coutinho but a good block from Bassong.
3'
A poor ball from Suarez and it’s out for a goal kick. Liverpool yet to string some decent passes together.
2'
Good run and cross from Olsson and Skrtel heads clear. Howson shoots at goal but it’s wide. Good start from Norwich.
1'
Liverpool have set up 4-4-1-1, Norwich 4-5-1 playing in their white away strip. A stray pass nearly falls to Gerrard but Bassong gets there just in time to hoof it clear.

FULL TIME: Liverpool 5-1 Norwich City. It’s been a Luis Suarez masterclass. Thanks for joining us!

HALF TIME: Liverpool 3-0 Norwich City. Time to get your breath back!

Referee Anthony Taylor blows the whistle to get us underway here at Anfield. Liverpool will attack the KOP in the first 45.
19.40
Five minutes to kick-off at Anfield. MATCH ODDS: Liverpool 2/7, Draw 21/4, Norwich 11/1.
19.35
Luis Suarez is once again the danger man for Liverpool. He has scored seven goals in his last three league games against Norwich, with four of them coming from outside the box. Of his seven goals against Norwich City, just one has been scored at Anfield. The other six came in two games at Carrow Road (two hat-tricks).
19.30
On the flip side, Norwich have scored just eight goals in the last 14 away games and failed to score in eight of those 14 matches.
19.25
Norwich may be buoyed by the fact that Liverpool do ship goals at home. The hosts have only kept one clean sheet in their last 10 Premier League matches – this after keeping six in their previous seven games.
19.20
Chris Hughton: "We are only a third of the way into the season and there are still plenty of points to play for. Nobody is divorced yet at the bottom. But there has been such a change in the ownership of clubs and now there just doesn’t seem to be the same patience that there used to be. You try to stay calm but it’s all very sad. You can never relax, even after a win.”
19.15
Norwich have won just three of their 25 Premier League away games under Chris Hughton (W3 D7 L15).
19.10
So as expected, Toure makes way for Agger and Sterling continues in attack. Brendan Rogers: "In the last two games we have conceded six goals. We have to be much, much better in that and we have to return to that on Wednesday night at home to Norwich."
19.05
TEAMS: Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Flanagan, Agger, Skrtel, Allen, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Coutinho, Suarez. SUBS: Jones, Toure, Sakho, Moses, Alberto, Aspas, Lucas /// Norwich: Ruddy; Martin, R Bennett, Bassong (c), Olsson; Johnson, Fer, Howson, Hoolahan, Redmond, Elmander. SUBS: Nash, Whittaker, Turner, Hooper, Garrido, Becchio, Josh Murphy.
19.00
Norwich team news: Hughton has no fresh injury concerns for the trip to Liverpool. The Canaries will be looking to build on their weekend win at home to Crystal Palace but still look likely to be without Anthony Pilkington (hamstring), Robert Snodgrass (knee) and Ricky van Wolfswinkel (toe). Meanwhile, the trio of Elliott Bennett (knee), Mark Bunn and Alexander Tettey (both ankle) are still out.
18.55
Despite Liverpool’s shock defeat away at Hull City, tonight looks a tall order for Norwich. They have won just three of their 25 Premier League away games under Chris Hughton (W3 D7 L15) and only managed a solitary point in their last eight Premier League games against Liverpool.
18.50
Liverpool team news: Philippe Coutinho is set to return to the starting line-up and conceding three goals for the second successive game, manager Brendan Rodgers is likely to change his defence with Kolo Toure likely to make way for Daniel Agger. Forward Iago Aspas was an unused substitute at Hull after returning to the squad from injury but after disappointing performances from Victor Moses and Raheem Sterling he may get a chance with striker Daniel Sturridge ruled out until next month.
