The national newspapers’ views on Norwich City’s 5-0 defeat at Liverpool.

Sunday Mirror: “Ryan Bennett’s own goal completed Norwich’s misery and, in a sense, captured the futility of their endeavours . . . they must be looking over their shoulders again.”

The Mail on Sunday: “Suarez, taken to task by his manager after admitting diving earlier in the season, did not fall over once at Anfield yesterday despite some hefty Norwich tackling.”

The Observer: “Grant Holt and Jonathan Howson were never given the time, space or support in the visiting attack to suggest there was a route back against a dominant home display.”

The Sunday Telegraph: “Norwich, having conceded five to Liverpool earlier in the season, were torn to shreds by the ultimate in flat-track bullying . . . it must be said, they were tame.”
