Liverpool 5 Norwich 1: Suarez scored four ‘wow’ goals, says Rodgers
Liverpool 5 Norwich 1: Brendan Rodgers says each of Luis Suarez's goals had the "wow" factor after an emphatic win
An ecstatic Brendan Rodgers hailed Luis Suarez’s four “wow” goals after an emphatic win against Norwich City at Anfield.
The Uruguay international broke the deadlock in the 15th minute with an outrageous 40-yard strike before adding a second from a corner.
Incredible performance by an incredible player. It was a real pleasure
Suarez completed a blistering 35-minute hat-trick with a powerful finish past John Ruddy before sealing his four-goal haul with a sublime second-half free-kick.
And the 26-year-old, who has 13 top-flight strikes this season, also created Raheem Sterling’s late strike after Bradley Johnson netted a consolation.
“It was a brilliant performance, I certainly haven’t seen better,” Rodgers said of Suarez. “It was just a pleasure to have watched that.
“Every goal was like a ‘wow’ goal, from the first right through to the end. It was an incredible performance by an incredible player and, as I said, it was a real pleasure.
“I really enjoyed watching my team tonight, we were full of creativity and goals and worked very hard.”
He added: “You can’t ask any more, he’s certainly earned his money and just a pleasure to work with.
“I think you see his happiness, he’s really happy in his football and the whole club just is a hand-in-glove fit for him.”
