Nuri Sahin also added to the two goals he bagged at the Hawthorns in midweek, while skipper Steven Gerrard rounded off the scoring. Goals from Morrison and Holt provided little solace for the hosts, as they continue to struggle with second season syndrome, although they did frustratingly prevent the Reds finally keeping a clean sheet.
Trusting in youth yet again, Rodgers handed Wisdom and Suso their first starts in the Premier League after both displayed their burgeoning talent against Young Boys in the Europa League and West Bromich Albion in the Capital One cup. Raheem Sterling also started in the visitors' exciting front three, while Sahin, Gerrard and Allen dominated the centre of midfield.
The Reds began brightly and never looked back. Barely two minutes in, Suarez cut inside and arrowed into the bottom corner of Ruddy's net to round off a passing move involving Sterling, Allen, Johnson and Sahin that must have delighted boss Brendan Rodgers, whose side are beginning to reap the rewards of his pass and move philosophy.

On the half hour mark, Suso fed Suarez, who clipped a superb pass into the path of the forward-thinking Gerrard. His header forced Ruddy to make a decent save and push the England international's effort away from danger. Suarez was then sent through on goal himself soon after, but his poor side-footed finish rolled annoyingly wide, much to the delight of the home supporters, who aimed the usual abuse in his direction throughout the 90 minutes.
He offered the perfect riposte to the crowd's insults literally seconds later, though, as he pounced on the indecisive Turner to steal possession before curling past Ruddy with an exquisite effort with the outside of his right foot. It was the sort of lethal finishing that Suarez has failed to produce so far this season and that the Reds have desperately needed in front of goal.

That possibility was diminished further when Gerrard clinched a fifth, firing low into the middle of the goal after fine work from Sterling down the right wing. There was still time for substitute Grant Holt to whip the ball past Reina and into the net to make it 5-2, but that didn't stop the home supporters booing their team off the pitch at full time.
They, like everyone else, knew that the post-match statistics painted a misleading picture. Although both teams enjoyed 50% of possession and had 10 shots and five corners, it was clear that the contest was nowhere near as even as those stats suggest. Liverpool dominated from start to finish, playing some magnificent football and finally finding their shooting boots.
If they keep up this form then they should start to shoot up the table.
