It was the Luis Suarez show yet again at Anfield as the Uruguayan international grabbed himself his first hat-rick of the season to help Liverpool brush past West Brom to move to second in the table.
Suarez's first goal came after 11 minutes. It was a superb individual effort by the striker, who played a one-two with Kolo Toure before beating two defenders (including a vintage nutmeg on defender Olsson) before firing the ball past Boas Myhill in the bottom left hand corner.
He then doubled his tally just six minutes later with a bullet header from 18 yards out, from a cross by Aly Cissokho.
Liverpool dominated the first half and could have went into the break with a bigger lead than just 209. Jordan Henderson fired his attempt over the bar from the edge of the penalty box and Martin Skrtel missed a complete sitter from a well worked and deceiving free kick.
In the second half, Liverpool come out all guns blazing again, something they have failed to do in some of their earlier fixtures this season.
Steven Gerrard showed his set piece master class yet again, firing a free kick into the box. The ball was inch perfect to find an unmarked Suarez, who scored his second header, glancing it into the top right corner and completing his hat-rick.
The Red's showed no mercy when 3-0 up, with Sturridge having a few chances including one that smashed against the cross bar.
West Brom grabbed themselves a consolation as a collision within the Liverpool penalty box allowed James Morrison to convert.
However Liverpool got their fourth with a delicious chip by Struddige in front of the Kop from 12 yards out.
Liverpool's next game is a tough visit to Arsenal next week end and with a win at the Emirates can go top of the table.
