The LFC fansite that...thinks there should be a blairt-alert on LFC TV phone-in



Liverpool 5 Vs Norwich City 1


What is it about the name Norwich that Luis Suárez loves so much, I am not sure what his goal bonus is, but I am sure he gets his extend family back in Uruguay to write their Christmas gift list the week before we play the Canneries.

The Liverpool striker continued his one-man crusade against the men from Carrow Road with four goals and an assist as Anfield witnessed a masterclass in the art of goal scoring.

Suárez took his tally to 11 goals in his last four appearances against Norwich, four very different goals that confirmed Luis as one of the best players in the world at this moment in time. There was an outrageous 40-yard strike, a superb piece of improvisation, a glorious half-volley and a 25-yard free-kick. Luis deserves to grace the Champions League stage, I just hope it’s with us next season and on this form, it just could be.

Defeat at Hull City on Sunday was a massive wake-up call that we can’t take that forth places for granted, but few teams would have been able to cope with Suárez on this form.

Norwich actually started the game well but there was greater urgency and intent to the Reds performance than they showed at the weekend and, once Suárez capitalised on a slight error, confidence surged through the home side.

Suárez picked up a careless pass near the centre circle took a first-time shot from 40 yards, with the Norwich keeper not too far off his line but powerless to prevent Suárez scoring his latest incredible goal from distance against Norwich.

From the Reds next attack, Suárez doubled the lead, this time with a hooked volley from close range, Coutinho's corner sailed through to an unmarked Luis six yards out and on this form the outcome was inevitable.

The hat-trick goal was another that left the Kop drooling. A swarm of white shirts closed in as he attacked Norwich down the inside-left channel. He reacted by flicking the ball over the defender, letting it drop on the edge of the penalty area and drove a wonderful half-volley across the keeper and into the far corner. The hat-trick was Suárez's third in four games against Norwich, ensuring he became the first player in Premier League history to score three tricks against the same team.

The Reds high tempo passing game continued to penetrate, Gerrard had a diving header cleared off the line, there was a brilliant save from a Joe Allen drive from 25 yards – and Suárez forced another low save from the keeper before scoring his fourth.

The Norwich keeper was easily beaten as the striker whipped his free-kick over the Norwich wall and inside the stoppers right-hand post. The visitors grabbed a late consolation goal when Johnson headed in from a cross.

The final word went to Sterling, who was set up by that man again Suárez sending in a low centre that Sterling converted at the back post.
