Though Sterling re-established Liverpool's two-goal cushion with a deflected effort shortly afterwards, the Canaries ensured a grandstand finale when Robert Snodgrass headed home. Suarez is the grateful recipient as he lets the ball run across his body before guiding it into the far corner. 77 mins: Lucas finds Sterling in all sorts of space on the right, but for all that his cut-back is poor and the ball is cleared. Suarez drives into the Norwich half and ends up colliding with Turner in midfield. Right then, almost time for the restart. Snodgrass is furious with the referee as Sakho slips and takes out the midfielder, but somehow nothing is given as the ball goes out for a goal kick. The Brazilian pulls it back to Sterling, whose first-time effort flies just over the crossbar. "His studs were up and it was dangerous. Johnson pulls the ball back to Suárez, lurking at the edge of the area, and he beats two defenders in checking back onto his right foot and then sends a shot six inches wide of goal. We've seen one or two things that we've worked on all week. Hooper and Howson both charge in on Mignolet but he coolly finds Sakho out wide. First attack at the other end and Whittaker swings a cross in from the right, but it evades Snodgrass at the far post. 29 mins: Snodgrass is booked for a nasty late lunge on Allen. These things might not always be a pleasure to watch, but they are somehow right. I’ve told him he’s a vital member of the group and he might not be able to effect the next three games on the field but he’s going to be very important for our changing room, our travelling and our hotels because he’s very much a part of us. Suarez is remonstrating with the referee, complaining that he should have allowed play to go on as they had a three-on-two inside the Norwich half, but the whistle had already gone. "Looking through a list of their songs, and hoping we don’t fall victim to the slips Chelsea and City have had, 'Don’t walk in the shadows' seems rather appropriate. Inspired by Sterling and the feel-good factor flowing through the Reds, he attempts a decent effort from 25 yards which just flashes wide. Was that the chance? Liverpool are on fire!! Liverpool concede a free-kick out on the left, and after failing to properly clear Nathan Redmond's cross, the ball falls for Gary Hooper deep inside the box. 56 mins: Liverpool are rocking now. However, referee Andre Mariner somehow doesn't see and the Reds have a goal kick. CHANCE FOR ALLEN!! Suarez angers the home crowd as he yelps in agony after a Fer challenge, but as he sees Liverpool breaking into the Norwich half he leaps to his feet and tries to get involved in the attack, which breaks down after good work from Turner. Published: 04:00 GMT, 20 April 2014 | Updated: 14:05 GMT, 20 April 2014. Here's a gallery. Liverpool win 3-2! Hooper got his head to the ball deep in the penalty area, that's for certain. Norwich, who are hovering two points above the drop zone, pulled the score back to 2-1 early in the second-half through Gary Hooper's straightforward finish. A case of the right piece in the wrong jigsaw puzzle, I think. Their side has scored a first-half goal in each of their last 25 games, we're told. I'm not too sure if that warrants enough of a let-off to take a an over-sized teddy bear to a game - but you can't fault the passion. Neil Adams has been chatting to Sky. 23min: The home fans even woke up after that attacking spell from Norwich, but it's gone quiet all round the ground again as Liverpool restore composure and take control of possession. Surely not?! He knocks it straight into the path of Hooper, who has the simplest task of poking it into an empty net. Nemesis. Redmond's initial delivery is poor but it comes back in and Turner nods down for Hooper, who can't quite get it out of his feet and is quickly surrounded by red shirts. Game on. Norwich's delivery has let them down so far, and it does again after Olsson's cross comes out to Redmond on the right, but he drills the ball far from anyone and behind for a goal kick to Liverpool. 10min: Gary Hooper fires off target for Norwich, but it's all Liverpool as John Ruddy saves superbly from Joe Allen. 71 mins: Norwich win another corner, headed just over by Martin. 'They've had a fantastic season, nobody expected them to win the title until recently but that brings pressure as now they are expected to win it, as a few weeks ago they were hoping to win it. It flew out of play. 90+2min: Everyone forward now for Norwich, with defender Michael Turner joining the attack on a permanent basis. Howson moves out to the left and flicks the ball into the path of Olsson, who fires in a dangerous cross, and Snodgrass gets there in front of Flanagan to flick a header just inside the post. 40min: Norwich continue to huff and puff as Hooper just misses out on connecting with a loose ball inside the box, with Mignolet rushing off his line to collect. …and relax. It was irrelevant, but funny. 76 mins: The first substitution of the match sees Victor Moses replace Coutinho. Brendcan Rodgers spoke earlier this week of Jordan Henderson's continued importance to his side, despite his three-match suspension: Even though we’ll lose him on the field we can’t lose his personality off the field as well which is why he’ll still travel and be a part of what we’re doing. Sunderland have done them two huge favours this week by taking fou points off Manchester City and Chelsea, and that means the Reds can go five points clear with a win this afternoon. 30 - The last time a Liverpool player scored 30 league goals in a season (Rush 1986-87), Neil Adams won the title (with Everton). Luis Suárez: Has now scored 12 goals in his last 5 apps against Norwich, 7 of them at Carrow Road #LFC. The midfielder finds a yard of space and fires towards goal, but he can only hit a red wall as Liverpool hack it clear. Surge. Norwich look shell-shocked at the moment and can hardly get out of their own half. Sterling receives treatment after that Turner challenge, but is quickly back on as Gerrard resumes proceedings with the free kick, which he takes short in midfield as Liverpool look to see out two minutes of stoppage time. Norwich's delivery has improved and it's caused Liverpool problems, but that Suarez effort shows how they can quickly move back out of sight. Snodgrass and Hooper link up on the edge of the box before the latter's pass deflects out wide off Sakho. The hosts are back in possession and have had a lot of play inside the Liverpool half, but haven't tested the goalkeeper properly yet. Maybe it wasn't far out enough for the forward judging by his fourth minute antics. Yet more danger inside the Liverpool box as Whittaker fires in another cross, this time along the ground, but Skrtel hacks it clear with an outstretched leg. 90+4 mins: It's cleared, but there's no stroke-it-into-the-empty-net breakaway. 7 - Luis Suarez is only the 7th player to hit 30+ goals in a single Premier League season (Shearer did it three times). Norwich give it away as Johnson's loose pass goes to Sterling, and the youngster charges into the Norwich half, cutting on to his left inside the area, before firing a shot which deflects off Johnson and loops over Ruddy and into the back of the net.

Nothing comes of it. 37min: This game has certainly taken an interesting turn. 1 min: Norwich earn an immediate throw-in deep into Liverpool territory, but the league leaders play the ball out nicely, and Allen wins a free-kick on the halfway line. Incidentally, I forgot to say, in response to Gary Naylor, that in the last 25 years or so I think only Keegan's Newcastle at their peak have approached the attacking standards set by this Liverpool side, but they only ever did it for the wrong half of a season. 81 mins: Whittaker lifts the ball into the box. Great chance to make it three!! Daniel Sturridge is out with a hamstring injury and Jordan Henderson is suspended, so Joe Allen and Lucas Leiva come in for Liverpool. Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Sakho, Flanagan, Gerrard, Lucas, Allen, Sterling, Coutinho, Suarez. Liverpool hold their nerve to win an 11th straight league match and go five points clear at the top of the table. The 2014–15 season was Norwich City Football Club's 113th season as a professional club. Come on boys! In addition there are heat zones for EVERY player as well as detailed maps of all the goals as they go in. I'm certainly not going against a team which has won their last 10 league games... Nowich beware. 26 mins: Joe Allen, who is doing a passable impression of the complete midfielder in these early moments, sees a 25-yarder dip just wide of goal. With Jordan Henderson suspended following his red card against Manchester City, Joe Allen and Lucas Leiva come into midfield. Awesome Lewis Hamilton battles back from crazy start to dominate in Portugal and... Mikel Arteta hits back in war of words with Mesut Ozil's agent as Arsenal boss insists £350,000-a-week... 'Why have we bought him? I said the action on the pitch would be feisty, and even the weather has responded with the sun now breaking though. Norwich want a corner as it's fired in from the left and flicks off Flanagan's head, but the officials miss it and Liverpool have a goal kick. Share on twitter. Mignolet shows incredible calmness as Flanagan passes it back to him, and he slots the ball through two Norwich players to find Skrtel. Chance for the hosts as Snodgrass and Howson close down Sakho, winning possession, and the former plays a low ball across the area looking for Hooper, but Skrtel hacks it clear from under his own crossbar. 65min: A first Liverpool booking of the day as Skrtel is cautioned for a foul on Redmond. Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Sakho, Flanagan, Allen, Gerrard, Lucas, Sterling, Suarez, Coutinho. This is the scene inside Carrow Road. The hosts have had 72 per cent of the possession in the last 10 minutes - things have really turned around in this second half. The defender is already on a yellow but it's just a free kick, which they take quickly before Sterling wins another out on the right-hand side off Olsson. Norwich are the lowest scorers in the division with just 26 strikes this season - fewer than Suarez alone. SO CLOSE, SUAREZ!! What a fantastic game, and it's a huge result for Brendan Rodgers' men, who are massive favourites to take the Premier League title now. It wasn't as influential a performance from the Brazilian this afternoon, but it's starting to look like the points are going back to Anfield. Turned heads down to Hooper, who checks inside, cleverly making space, only for Allen to arrive and get in his way – twice! This is a stunning start from Liverpool, and Norwich are struggling to cope with the intensity already. Mignolet catches it.

It features all the latest line-ups, formations, match stats and a player comparison tool. The sight of this won't be: 90+5 mins: It's over! Encouraging sings for the hosts, here. An incredible five-goal thriller at Carrow Road started the Premier League on Easter Sunday, and you can catch all the post-match fall-out on the homepage. 1 - Liverpool have kept only one clean sheet in their last six Premier League games. That might harm a striker who, what with the eight months he's endured since his last goal, had probably already lost the confidence of everybody else, almost certainly including himself. It's risky, but seems to work for Rodgers' men. From nowhere! A long ball down the left is worked to Redmond, whose cross is headed by Snodgrass, and the ball loops in at the back stick. Is this really going to be their year? 62min: From hero to zero of sorts for Bradley Johnson. 43min: It's been a while since we saw Liverpool have a shot on goal but they have an effort just before the break as Coutinho curls across goal and just wide of the top corner from inside the box.
