Liverpool moved five points clear in the Premier League by beating Norwich 3-2 on Sunday courtesy of two goals by Raheem Sterling and a 30th goal of the campaign by Luis Suarez.

Norwich's second-half revival forced Liverpool to work hard for its 11th straight win that kept the team on course for a first championship in 24 years.

Sterling crashed home a brilliant long-range strike in the fourth minute before setting up Suarez in the 11th for his 12th goal against Norwich in their last five meetings.

After Gary Hooper cut the deficit in the 54th, Sterling re-established the two-goal lead with his second that saw him run from inside his own half before his deflected shot looped in.

Robert Snodgrass' 77th-minute header set up a nervy finish.
