    Luis Suarez grabs a hat-trick to sink Norwich at Carrow Road in an otherwise uninspiring game.

  • 90'

    FULL TIME Norwich 0-3 Liverpool

  • 90'

    Reina comes out to punch clear a Russell Martin cross.

  • 90'

    Two minutes added-time...

  • 89'

    Final couple of minutes of normal time and proceedings are grinding to a halt at Carrow Road.

  • 88'

    Norwich look to restore some pride, but they are struggling to break down Liverpool.

  • 87'

    Suarez's last goal was sublime. About the only moment of the match that has.

  • 86'

    Liverpool taking their time now. Understandably so.

  • 85'

    Kuyt replaces Suarez. Coates for Gerrard.

  • 83'

    Norwich punished for yet another mistake. Only difference between the two sides has been Luis Suarez today

  • 82'

    GOAL Norwich 0-3 Liverpool Suarez beauty!!!

  • 82'

    James Vaughan lines up a half-volley at goal, blocked by Jamie Carragher.

  • 81'

    Neither team able to keep possession once more...

  • 80'

    Suarez winning himself no friends at Carrow Road, appealing for a hand-ball that only he saw.

  • 79'

    Liverpool with this result would move to within two points of City rivals Everton. FA Cup final next week of course.

  • 78'

    Liverpool now in possession. This is going nowhere very quickly.

  • 77'

    Bellamy looks to run at right-back Martin, but the defender stands strong once more. He's done well since coming on.

  • 76'

    Lovely stuff! Russell Martin crosses from the right to find James Vaughan, who rises high and heads just wide.

  • 75'

    Fifteen minutes remaining now...

  • 74'

    What is that? Bradley Johnson swings in a left-footed cross, but it is dreadful. High, hopeful and straight to Pepe Reina.

  • 73'

    Liverpool have men over as they counter with the ball at the feet of Stewart Downing. He makes a mess of the situation, cutting inside and taking all the pace out of the move.

  • 72'

    Norwich looking to bring on Grant Holt to enliven proceedings.

  • 71'

    Liverpool's wearing of white FA Cup final suits in 1996 is among the contenders for greatest FA Cup moments in an ESPN.Vote for your favourite moments here.

  • 70'

    James Vaughan takes on an ambitious attempt for Norwich. Worth a try, but never threatening.

  • 69'

    Suarez shows the other side to his game. Having harassed the defender into making a mistake, he is faced with a simple ball across the box to find Jonjo Shelvey. Yet, it is completely mishit.

  • 68'

    Despite their lead and danger in attack, Liverpool don't look all that secure here at times.

  • 67'

    Naughton looks to swing in a cross from deep on the Norwich left. Doesn't even make the area before being cleared by Carragher.

  • 66'

    Vaughan slides in late on Pepe Reina, who takes a risk whilst clearing the ball.

  • 66'

    Liverpool well on-top once more now...

  • 65'

    Ahead of next week's FA Cup final, Liverpool fan Dave Kirby takes us through the Reds' rollercoaster season in the latest of our ESPN Fan Films.

  • 64'

    Ridiculous miss! Suarez is through one-on-one and instead of rolling the ball home, looks to chip the keeper and misses the chance for a hat-trick

  • 62'

    Long spell of possession in defence for Liverpool, until Carragher fires the ball long to the opposition.

  • 61'

    A couple of chances in the last few minutes livens up proceedings somewhat.

  • 60'

    Good play by Downing to turn Kyle Naughton on the Liverpool right. Gets a shot away, but well saved by John Ruddy.

  • 59'

    Elliot Bennett takes another swing at goal from 30 yards. Decent attempt, but started wide and went further away as it travelled.

  • 58'

    No doing from the corner as Liverpool clear. Referee awards a free-kick.

  • 57'

    A fortunate deflection falls to Steve Morison at the edge of the box, but his tame shot creeps wide. Corner anyway.

  • 56'

    Yet to score in the Premier League for Liverpool is Shelvey.

  • 55'

    Has to score! Fine play from Jose Enrique down the left who then fires a great low ball across goal for Jonjo Shelvey. But, the midfielder misses from a couple of yards out.

  • 54'

    More poor passing. This time Bradley Johnson looks to provide the killer ball and finds Henderson instead.

  • 53'

    Gerrard, Suarez and Downing link-well together, with the England wide-man firing over the bar.

  • 52'

    Off the bar! The ball loops into the air in the Norwich box and Jonjo Shelvey's header rattles back off the crossbar.

  • 52'

    From the resulting corner, Bradley Johnson loses Shelvey and heads just wide.

  • 51'

    Brilliant save! Elliot Bennett tests Reina from range and the Spaniard pulls off a fine stop.

  • 50'

    Agger passes to no-one allowing Norwich to attack in-behind Glen Johnson. Carragher shepherds the ball for a throw-in.

  • 49'

    Liverpool now look to assert control in midfield. Norwich playing a diamond midfield now, in a 4-4-2

  • 48'

    That one went out of play before reaching the box. Poor stuff from Pilkington.

  • 47'

    Another corner for the Canaries. Swung in from the right and headed behind by Gerrard. Third time lucky.

  • 46'

    Within a few seconds, Norwich are attacking Liverpool and they have a corner. Doesn't reach the front-post though.

  • 46'

    SECOND HALF underway

  • 46'

    James Vaughan replaced David Fox

  •  

    The rain has got significantly heavier at half-time. Lovely stuff...

  •  

    That's also ten league goals this season for Luis Suarez in 29 appearances. Modest return, but two big goals today.

  •  

    Second-half coming up then. Norwich will need to significantly up their game to get anything from this one.

  •  

    They were, unfortunately, the only two shots on-target all half

  •  

    Suarez has been criticised for his profligacy this campaign, but he made no mistake today.

  •  

    All about Luis Suarez in the first-half. A poor game lit up by two fine finishes from the Uruguayan.

  • 45'

    HALF TIME Norwich 0-2 Liverpool

  • 45'

    Howson - With the free-kick squandered, Howson prevents a Liverpool counter.

  • 45'

    Final chance of the half for Norwich to swing the ball into the box. Bellamy giving away a free-kick on the right.

  • 45'

    As Norwich lose the ball in attack, Bellamy plays a long-ball forward for Suarez who is flagged offside. Would have been wide open for him there.

  • 44'

    Bellamy started his career at Norwich, scoring 34 goals in 91 games for the Canaries.

  • 43'

    Bellamy lines-up the free-kick, but it is high and wide from the Welshman. Poor effort.

  • 42'

    Elliot Ward fouls Luis Suarez as the Uruguayan looks to counter.

  • 41'

    Bellamy catches Jonny Howson in midfield. Lucky to acoid a booking.

  • 40'

    Liverpool getting frustrated with Norwich's hassling as they attack. Some tempers starting to flare.

  • 39'

    Liverpool swing a corner in from the right. Well cleared by the head of Elliot Ward. Glen Johnson dallies and can't return the ball into the area.

  • 38'

    Penalty claim from Luis Suarez. Went to ground very easily.

  • 37'

    Anthony Pilkington looks to break in behind Carragher to spark a Norwich attack. The experienced defender deals well with the threat, stepping across to clear.

  • 36'

    Both teams try to string together some passes. It doesn't last long though.

  • 35'

    Norwich can only blame themselves for the scoreline. Both goals from mistakes. Neither team playing well.

  • 34'

    Opportunity not taken as they take it short. Messy passing loses the ball.

  • 33'

    Foul on Glen Johnson gives Liverpool a free-kick from the right. What can they do here?

  • 31'

    Bellamy taken out down the left-flank and wants a free-kick. The ball had already gone out of play though. Nothing given.

  • 30'

    Norwich keeping the ball better since the second goal. They need to clear their minds.

  • 29'

    Suarez is the difference between the two sides at the moment.

  • 28'

    GOAL Norwich 0-2 Liverpool Suarez at the double!!! Breaking down the right after a mistake, the Uruguayan has far too much space and fires home with the outside of his boot past a helpless Ruddy.

  • 27'

    Liverpool well on top since the goal. Bellamy loops a cross in to the back-post. Cleared.

  • 26'

    Suarez gets lucky on the right and breaks past Elliot Ward before picking out Steven Gerrard with a cut-back. Gerrard's shot is well-blocked.

  • 25'

    That puts a positive spin on proceedings. Hopefully the game will open up a bit.

  • 24'

    GOAL Norwich 0-1 Liverpool Suarez scores!!! Gerrard robs the ball in midfield, before feeding Luiz Suarez in the left channel for the Uruguayan to fire home.

  • 23'

    Long ball from Jamie Carragher looking for the man on the right-flank. Terribly overhit.

  • 22'

    Russell Martin gets down the right-flank and looks to get a cross in. Cut out by Agger.

  • 19'

    Liverpool looking to the left-flank once more. No luck this time.

  • 18'

    Bellamy looks to get down the left-flank, but is flagged offside by the official. Nothing doing.

  • 17'

    Cross from the Liverpool left finds Shelvey at the back post, but the youngster's control is terrible and he can't get a shot away.

  • 16'

    Uninspiring midfield play from both sides. This game is lacking in everything.

  • 15'

    Swung in, but straight to Pepe Reina. Poor.

  • 14'

    Free-kick to Norwich from the right-flank. Dangerous.

  • 13'

    Norwich picking-off Liverpool's long-balls with ease at the moment. New strategy required.

  • 12'

    That change will see Kyle Naughton move across to left-back, with Russell Martin at right-back.

  • 12'

    Russell Martin replaces Adam Drury

  • 10'

    Pilkington got behind the defence down the left, but his ball across the defence cannot pick out Morison.

  • 9'

    Looks like the end of his day for the long-serving full-back. Play underway again.

  • 8'

    Adam Drury goes down after beating Luis Suarez to a ball in midfield. Looks to be a groin issue.

  • 7'

    Not the best game so far. Neither side able to keep the ball.

  • 6'

    Liverpool's attempt at an attack comes quickly to an end. Luis Suarez' lofted ball to Bellamy only finds the Norwich full-back.

  • 5'

    Decent passing spell for Norwich quickly comes to an end. Far from enterprising fare thus far.

  • 4'

    Bradley Johnson looks to play in Anthony Pilkington down the left. Cut out by Jamie Carragher.

  • 3'

    Neither side settled yet. The ball is being turned-over with regularity at the moment.

  • 2'

    Fox trots off to get his head stitched up and the play gets going again.

  • 1'

    Decent start for Norwich. We have a delay already though as Jonjo Shelvey catches David Fox with his boot.

  • 1'

    KICK OFF We are underway as Liverpool kick us off.
