Reds Smash Canaries

Liverpool bounced back from their defeat to Manchester United with a thumping 5-0 win at home to Norwich City on Saturday.

The Canaries had a decent chance seven minutes in through a free-kick but Ryan Bennett sent his header straight at Brad Jones.

A minute later Stewart Downing drilled a shot just wide of the upright while Luis Suarez was denied by the goalkeeper after being found in the 14th minute.

Liverpool's pressure would eventually pay off in the 26th minute when Jordan Henderson lashed a screamer into the top corner from the edge of the area.

The Reds midfielder then went close with another long-range strike nine minutes later but Suarez would double their tally before the break.

The Uruguay international raced clear after good work from Daniel Sturridge and neatly picked out the bottom corner.

Grant Holt somehow missed pulling a goal back when failed to slide the ball home in the 51st minute and that miss would be punished moments later.

Downing whipped in a first-time cross after being found by Henderson and Sturridge was on hand to tap in their third of the day.

The Reds were flowing with confidence and things would get worse for Norwich when Steven Gerrard slammed a low shot into the back of the net in the 65th minute.

The rout was then completed by Raheem Sterling who raced down the flank before firing a shot at goal which was deflected over the line by Bennett.
