Luis Suarez appears to have a personal vendetta against Norwich City after inflicting fresh misery on the Canaries at Anfield on Wednesday night.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

The Uruguayan has now plundered 11 goals in five Premier League games against City on an evening when the records tumbled and the legend continued to grow in front of his adoring public.

Suarez’s first strike was individual brilliance personified as he smashed a bouncing ball fully 35 yards out straight over the stranded John Ruddy into the roof of the net. Ruddy’s facial expression in the immediate aftermath said it all as he sat hunched on the turf in the midst of the bedlam that engulfed Suarez below the Kop; a mixture of bemusement and incredulity. The forward’s second owed everything to fresh calamitous defending from the Canaries from a corner with Steven Gerrard allowed to escape unattended in a diversionary near post tactic that allowed Suarez to hook home from seven yards. His hat-trick goal was pure genius, a lift over Leroy Fer’s head before a thunderous volley from the edge of the area that flew past Ruddy yet again before a 25-yard free kick encore in the second half completed his haul.

Suarez even turned provider to allow Raheem Sterling briefly into his spotlight with a cut-back despatched by the youngster two minutes from the end. It was pure fantasy football with Norwich sacrificial lambs on the road once more in the Premier League and just the barest of consolations courtesy of Bradley Johnson’s late glancing header. City simply were blown away by Suarez’s opening blitz prior to the interval, with the sight of Palace match-winner Gary Hooper on the bench in place of Johnson underlining Norwich’s contrasting approach.

Hughton sprung something of a surprise with Fer deployed in a deeper-lying midfield role behind a central midfield two of Johnson and Jonny Howson, who produced the first strike inside the opening minutes with a swinging shot that failed to trouble Simon Mignolet. Philipe Coutinho provided chief support to Suarez with Gerrard in his now customary playmaker berth.

Sebastien Bassong bailed out Nathan Redmond when the youngster attempted a rash square pass on the edge of his own area by producing a perfectly-timed diving block to thwart Coutinho following a dangerous burst from the Brazilian. The Reds were equally guilty of early hesitancy with Howson allowed to drift unattended to the back post, but Wes Hoolahan was swiftly close down by Daniel Agger. Redmond continued to struggle to find a man in black and white although Hoolahan looked comfortable in such auspicious surroundings with a pirouette taking him away from Joe Allen only for Mignolet to gather his low left-footed strike from 25 yards. Gerrard underlined his class with a diagonal pass teased into the feet of Jordan Henderson but Redmond denied the midfielder with the home crowd growing increasingly restless at the lack of precision from Brendan Rodgers’ side.

Suarez had largely been contained in the opening skirmishes until he pounced on Hoolahan’s misplaced pass to drive at Ryan Bennett but the centre-back stood his ground. Hughton’s first foray to the edge of his technical area hinted at a growing concern with City now increasingly pinned on the edge of their own penalty area but the breakthrough owed everything to Suarez’s sublime talent as he let an aimless ball bounce twice inside the Norwich half before unleashing a volley that flew over the stranded Ruddy. Bradley Johnson was forced to take evasive action with a crude trip to fell Suarez as the visitors strived to clear their collective heads, but Liverpool’s urgent pressing was a marked feature of the Reds’ territorial control. Johan Elmander increasingly cut an isolated figure as City’s sporadic attempts to support the Swede were hindered by their inability to lift the developing siege although his willingness to drop deep did fashion a chance for Hoolahan in the 25th minute, but the Irishman squirted the cross wide at the far post.

Norwich’s prospects of salvaging anything remotely positively from their latest torturous episode on Merseyside receded further when Suarez rifled his second after Gerrard roamed unchecked towards the near post to glance a Coutinho corner. Bassong and Bennett wasted little time in opening the inquest with an angry exchange between the central defensive pair after a concession which bore all the hallmarks of Norwich’s early gift in the recent 2-1 away league defeat at Newcastle. Bradley Johnson hammered a speculative effort wide before Redmond did force Mignolet into a routine stop after Allen was cautioned for hauling down City’s Johnson. But predictably it was Suarez who had the final word in an interval when he underlined his reputation as one of the best in the business after lifting calmly over Fer before guiding a volley past Ruddy from 18 yards.

Bassong headed Redmond’s free kick over on the restart with Hughton opting to keep the same starting line up on the pitch. Coutinho’s cheeky attempt at the other end to whip a ball under Norwich’s wall after Fer was penalised failed to trouble Ruddy. Bennett then clubbed Gerrard’s diving header off his line with Ruddy beaten as Liverpool threatened to cut loose.

Bassong was bailed out by Bennett after a forlorn effort to dribble past Gerrard then Ruddy acrobatically tipped over Allen’s long range short arrowing towards his top corner with Norwich creaking again. Hoolahan earned the visitors temporary respite with a counter that saw Redmond drag a right-foot shot into the side netting before Hoolahan made way for Josh Murphy just past the hour mark.

Normal service was swiftly resumed when Suarez brushed off the attentions of Martin Olsson but Ruddy foiled the Uruguayan at his near post. Hooper joined Murphy for the final quarter with the tiring Elmander making way. City were unquestionably enjoying more possession in opposition territory but Suarez capped his memorable night in the 75th minute with a dipping free kick lashed up and over the Norwich wall and beyond the sprawling Ruddy after Bradley Johnson was adjudged to have shoved Gerrard.

City’s Johnson earned some reward for a battling outing in midfield when he glanced home Redmond’s inviting cross eight yards out. Gerrard then clipped a post with a clever flick before Sterling completed the rout in the 88th minute rifling home Suarez’s cut-back before the fearsome striker left the field to a standing ovation for Iago Aspas.

Just feel a bit numb now its over. I didn't much like Hooper being on the bench and the subs were poor leaving me a little puzzled. I really don't know what we should do for the best.

  • Hughton has to go and go now. He is devoid of any ideas or man management skills and our once proud football team is fast becoming an embarrassment to football and the fans. Hughton carries on in his clueless ways whist the board bury their heads in the sand. We are probably already doomed to relegation so it is imperative that they act soon and appoint someone to turn things round. The current manager is totally useless and is incapable of getting his players to play to their best. There is not one player in this squad who is better under Hughtons guidance - he has dragged the skill and enthusiasm out of all of them. Get rid before he gets his hands on more money at the end of the month. A new manager would have time to stamp his authority on the team and identify new players to strengthen the squad.

That now having the worst goal dif in the league doesn't matter as long as we win at home and stay 15th or thereabouts In the meantime other clubs are sacking failing managers and scooping up possible replacements. And McNally appears to fiddle as Rome,(well Norwich) burns How long can we carry on like this???

  • Pritch, almost but not quite. The pride and determination did not go with Lambert. It was still there last season. It went with Grant Holt. Hughton absolutely does urgently need to find an answer to that and I think it means he needs to learn very quickly how to be more ruthless with his team. Just about everyone knows you're a nice guy Chris, but you've got to learn to be tough and ruthless when you need to be.

  • Liverpool are a good side (but not as good as Hull), Suarez is a good striker (some might say incisive) and the odds of victory were never great. Yeah, yeah, I get all that. I don't mind defeat if there's a performance but how can you you expect performance from the team under a manager who cant inspire, who selects the wrong players, who plays the ones he does select out of position and who doesn't have the nouse to change anything? And why should the fans have to accept this never ending humiliation? I didn't think Hughton could sink much lower but he continues to plumb new depths with new records: 16 goals conceded against just 3 clubs within a 15 mile radius, the only club to concede more than a dozen goals against the same side in 3 consecutive fixtures, the only club to allow one player to score a hatrick against them in each of those same fixtures, 3 consecutive defeats against our nemesis side, Villa, dumped out of the cup by non-league opposition......and so it goes on. Norwich are more of a laughing stock than any other team in the PL. Sunderland put 3 past Chelsea, Palace have a gritty new manager and deserved at least a point at Carrow Road and Fulham were a revelation under new management against Spurs. The sad truth is that Hughton deserves to be bottom of the League, but the fans dont. He wont resign (and surrender a wad of money), so we must wait to see if today's gale force winds and high tides sweep him away. Otherwise, we'll have to wait til the final whistle at West Brom and see if McNally and the board have woken from their collective and complacent slumber and smelled the coffee. And people say, yeah, but who will replace him? Does it matter? Surely no one could inflict any greater humiliation on our club than Hughton himself. If we have to be relegated this season with a goal difference which resembles a cricket score, let us at least salvage some East Anglian pride under the leadership of a manager who understands the game, someone who actually cares. That's all I want for Christmas.

A striker playing with confidence and looking forward to the challenge is dropped and replaced with a bloke who has no idea how to play as a target man. Another batch of clueless substitutions once the game was truly lost. Only positive was Johnson, who gave his best performance for 12 months, and showed the type of determination sadly lacking this season. Anyone got Glenn Hoddle's number?

  • On paper I believe the team is competitive, but due to low self esteem, low confidence and a lack of team cohesiveness, the team seems confused and appears to have lost its desire to compete. Whether the club is fostering the can't win, don't try mentality when playing the better clubs is hard to tell. But the recent glaring lack of focus against Man City and now Liverpool is obvious for all to see. Foremost they must compete. They must at all time approach the game with maximum effort and focus. Leave their guts on the field. These elements are not currently in evidence. Why? Ineffective management and bad decision making which can be traced back to Lambert leaving. We must stop whimpering through games and we must put a management team in place quickly which will motivate the team and restore Canary pride. The season is slipping away and we are sliding down with it. Stop the rot now.

  • I've given CH and his team the benefit of the doubt up to now but if ever an invitation to attack at will was made this was it. Removing any indication of a potential (did read potent but had to reconsider) strike force was akin to entering a boxing ring with your hands tied behind your back and saying that you are going to run away and dodge the punches - end result no chance of a win even on points! Are CH and his team trying to convince the PL that yellow is more than the colour of the shirts? If so, then there are a good few thousand supporters who would beg to differ!

  • The odds of beating the big boys are against us,but to sit back and give them space to play means we get a hiding.By playing a high line and pressing them and denying space will disrupt their play and to some extent bring them down to our level.Why was Redmond again playing on the left?I suppose the plan was for Elmander to hold the ball up but in my mind he is a League I player and should not have started and at least been replaced at half time.We criticised Him for being too defensive minded which was why we could not buy a goal in open play.Now,not only can we not score but are shipping goals like water He may appear to be a nice bloke but is not up to the job and should "man up" and walk away from a job that even he should see he is not up to.

  • Given that I predicted a week ago on this board that Suarez would get a double hat trick, from a CH perspective we must have been successful last night as he only got 4. On Saturday I watched Hull mark Suarez out of the game and he looked ordinary to say the least. I can only presume that our management team cannot be bothered to watch the opposition in action or learn from other coaches. Watching the goals last night on the box, Fer looked slow and uninterested at times, Johnson apparently played well in an attacking midfield roll, its a wonder we were not playing Nash up front. We need some big changes at the club that is for sure.

They stand there and watch him in amazement instead of chasing him down and trying to mark and play him out of the game. So yes, he will score all of those goals against us that he always does. What is most annoying is, we never learn from these heavy defeats, we just go on into the next game and make the same mistakes all over again. Theres no hope.

Is it that they (McN and co) are not able to find a good manager - 1 out of the last 4 is not a good record, although not sure exactly where in terms of recent managers McN came in. Something has to be done quickly to restore confidence in fans and team. This is a business that is going down the tube and needs good tough decisions to keep it viable.

How many times have I been taken to task for saying for over a year now that Hughton, Bewilderwood and tripe couldnt manage a Sunday morning pub team. To spend the money they did on international class players, and still manage to turn them into an amateurish shambles, the only thing they have actually managed. We have class players in the squad, what we dont' have is a managementcoaching team. The man is a complete joke, and has undone all the good work done for this club by Lambert and Culverhouse. McNally, do the right thing and get rid before we have no chance of staying in the Prem. with it's big pot of gold

  • Getting ethered at every turn this morning - to save rewriting I'll keep it simply with just one comment -Sack Hughton now before it's too late.

  • If we started playing well, winning well and we're well managed with good, sound tactics, myself and I suspect many others would put their hands up and we were wrong. What really annoys me about the, sometime offensive, pro Hughton posters is that they seemingly never ever admit,that in fact, they got it wrong. They use phrases like "you're all Norwich City haters" and "you can't wait to stick the boot in". Your honest opinion would be appreciated my fellow canary fans.

  • Pierre unfortunately with the sole possible exception of Holloway EPL football managers are not men of honour so protecting their honour is useless. FW de Klerk was a man of honour and Mandela judged that correctly. Hughton is stringing it out for his monetary pay off like all our incompetent leaders and deserve to be treated as such. He is no man of honour he is useless

  • Slovenia, Mandela's rather useful life maxim was to defeat his opponents without dishonouring them...

  • Martin at fault for 3 of the goals..shocking defender. But will get a game ahead of whitaker every week. Dropping Hooper? Crazy..Would rather lose fighting. Hughton out now..been too long and maybe too late now

  • Where do the fans turn now - Hughton is totally useless, McNally and board refuse to do anything to rectify the situation - what we have to do is shut up and put up with it. Sorry but that is no way to treat the club or the supporters who care so much, we deserve more than this.
