Little he could do to stop Suarez's brilliance. Did make a good save from a Gerrard header, but his efforts were all in vain.
Struggled to deal with the combination of players popping up on the Liverpool right, as the likes of Gerrard, Suso and Wisdom passed triangles around him.
Reliable as ever at right-back. He was not overwhelmed by the pace and power offered by the very attacking Glen Johnson and kept a lid on Sterling too until the youngsters left him for dead to initiate the move for Liverpool's third. His powerful shot resulted in Morison's goal, though.
Struggled from the start, with his distribution often badly wayward. Should have been penalised for fouling Suarez in the penalty area but got away with it. An afternoon to forget.
Troubled by the pace of the Liverpool attack but he was coping credibly until Suarez robbed him of possession to score his second goal of the afternoon. In the second half, he was hung out to dry due to the amount of space they had to break into.
Had a day to forget. When the team plays badly, he struggles and he eventually started taking some criticism from the home supporters for a poor display.
Had difficulty getting his foot on the ball amid Liverpool's heavy pressing and his set-pieces and crosses from deep were often very disappointing.
Has been a shining light for Norwich in recent weeks but less involved here and somehow missed from no more than two yards out in the second half.
The most influential player in the Norwich midfield and carried the ball into dangerous positions on occasion. Kept trying despite the scoreline and was rewarded when he picked out Holt for Norwich's second.
Fared reasonably well in attack, receiving his chance to start following the slow start of Holt to the new campaign. Clever hold-up play created good chances for both Jackson and Surman and he scored his first of the season in the second period from close range.
Looked back to his best, making a string of timely saves in the first half despite Liverpool's general domination. The Spaniard moved across goal quickly to deny Jackson and later did well to push away a deflected shot, although the flag was up for offside. But then allowed an error to creep in when he parried Martin's shot straight to Morison.
Troubled on occasion, along with Agger, by the physicality of Morison and Holt but generally kept his foot on the ball and helped Liverpool exert some control from the back. They could do better in dealing with crosses, however, and he should not have allowed Howson's pass to reach Holt for Norwich's second.
Attacked aggressively down the left but did not neglect his defensive duties. Struggled to get much change out of Martin when he went forward, however.
Coped well on his first start at right-back. Limited in an attacking sense but took care of his defensive work first. Was alert enough to make an important tackle on Holt from a quick set-piece which prevented what would have been a good chance. Combined well with Suso given the pair's inexperience.
His lovely through ball set Suarez through on goal in the first half but the striker shot wide. His comfort in possession is a real asset and helped Liverpool control the ball but Norwich were not without chances.
A couple of moments of individual brilliance, such as one run on to a wonderful Suarez pass that ended in his header being well-saved by Ruddy.
Quiet in the first half, but arguably the most dangerous player on the pitch in the second. Started the moves which resulted in Sahin and Gerrard's goals by leaving Martin and Garrido for dead.
Quickly adapting to life in the Premier League. He played as the most advanced of Liverpool's central midfielders and Suarez benefited greatly from the support. Grabbed a deserved goal in the second half.
A joy to watch. Simply does not give the ball away, even in compromising positions. The foundation of every good passing move Liverpool manage.
Sublime. His second hat-trick in as many seasons at Carrow Road but his contribution was not limited to goals. The pass that created a chance that Gerrard headed at the goalkeeper, for instance, was exquisite. Abuse was hurled in his direction all afternoon and he was denied a penalty but responded in the perfect way.
Called for by the Norwich supporters but the game was over before he entered it and only got worse afterwards. Got between the lines and showcased some neat passing but the contest was over.
Busier than he had been in recent weeks, but still looked laboured and slow off the mark at times. Appears as if he is at the end of a gruelling season rather than the start of a fresh one, but found enough energy to finish past Reina after Howson had set him free.
