PHOTOS: The goals that took Liverpool closer to the title

Liverpool Ball

Liverpool went 2-0 up against Norwich City this afternoon courtesy of goals from Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez.

Liverpool went into this afternoon's match against Norwich City knowing the Premier League title was tantalisingly close, but that it was also theirs to lose.

Manchester City may have two games-in-hand, but if the Reds keep winning, they will finally get their hands on a trophy that has eluded them for so long, with few begrudging Steven Gerrard a Premier League title-winning campaign at last.

There is still a long way to go in this particular race, with one slip-up potentially the catalyst for a huge change in fortune.  But Brendan Rodgers' side showed little sign of nerves as they raced into a two-goal lead away to the Canaries, courtesy of strikes from Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez.

The England winger scored in just the fourth minute, his right-foot shot finding the top corner; before Suarez continued his outstanding form against Norwich, doubling the visitors' lead six minutes later.

There is plenty of football to be played this afternoon and in the matches remaining.  But Liverpool will know they are on the verge of making history, and how often can you say that?

With last week's victory over City potentially the point of no return, surely Gerrard and his teammates will see this through now, although not one of the Liverpool faithful will be counting their chickens until it is mathematically impossible to overtake them.
