Manchester City also won 2-0.
Liverpool FC were ruthless on Saturday as they hit five goals past a hapless Norwich City side in an English Premier League match at Anfield.
Jordan Henderson opened the flood gate of goals as he found the back of the net in 26th minute. Thereafter controversial Uruguayan striker, Luis Suarez, who already has an awesome goal scoring record against Norwich doubled the lead for the Reds 10 minutes after Henderson’s strike.
On resumption of the second half Liverpool were not ready to take chances as they continued the onslaught on the visitors and were rewarded when new signing Daniel Sturridge scored his first Anfield goal and thus continued his impressive start that has seen him score three goals in three appearances.
Captain Steven Gerrard was also on target in Saturday’s big scoring game with his trademark long range shot to make it 4-0.
Norwich’s woes were in the final minutes of the game compounded as an own goal from R.Bennet saw the struggling side finish the game 5-0; the biggest scoreline in Saturday’s EPL fixtures.
In other games Manchester City temporarily cut United’s lead at the top of the table to 4 points after securing an expected 2-0 win against Fulham. David Silva scored both goals for the EPL defending champions in what many see as a routine victory.
Swansea City were also victorious at the Liberty Stadium seeing off visiting Stoke City 3-1.
It was however another tale of disappointment for Nigeria’s Shola Ameobi who was in action for Newcastle but was on the losing side as Reading came from behind to defeat the Magpies 2-1 in front of their home fans.
Sunderland got an away 2-3 win over Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium while West Ham and QPR ended it in a draw in their own duel. New import from France, Remy, had put the bottom side ahead before former Chelsea and Liverpool man, Joe Cole, leveled things up for the Coach Sam Alladyce side.
