Liverpool were in impressive form as they romped to a comprehensive 5-0 victory against a Norwich side that is tumbling down the standings.

The Canaries must be fresh out of ideas when it comes to the Reds as Brendan Rodgers' side also eased to a 5-2 victory at Carrow Road four months ago.

Both sides had chances to take the lead in an even opening 15 minutes with Stewart Downing heading Luis Suarez's pinpoint-cross wide, before Ryan Bennett headed Robert Snodgrass' free-kick straight at a grateful Brad Jones in the Liverpool goal.

The home side began to get on top though and deservedly took the lead in the 26th minute when Jordan Henderson sent a superb shot past Mark Bunn.

Ten minutes later Daniel Sturridge cleverly dummied the ball which allowed Suarez, who scored a hat-trick at Carrow Road in September, to bury a shot past the Canaries goalkeeper.

The second half continued in a similar vein as Liverpool continued to dictate proceedings and they scored goals at regular intervals.

Just before the hour mark, the revitalised Downing sent in a cross that was turned into an empty net from two yards out by Sturridge.

It was more of the same in the 66th minute, as a sweet Liverpool move ended with Steven Gerrard lashing a thunderbolt past the hapless Bunn and into the bottom-left corner.

With 16 minutes left, Norwich's afternoon was summed up when substitute Raheem Sterling's shot deflected off Bennett before nestling in the back of the net.
