It was bound to happen. It was just a matter of when, not if Liverpool would register their first league win under Brendan Rodgers.
540 minutes and six games later it finally happened, and in style as the Reds put Norwich to the sword at Carrow road in a 5 star performance.
Prior to the Liverpool win their horrendous start to the season had been the topic of much discussion and heated debate.
Statistically it was the worst start to the season by the Anfield Club. Infact the 3 losses and two draws in their first 5 games translated to the worst start in over 100 years.
But statistics do not take into account the teams that a club faces: In the first five games Liverpool had played Champions Manchester City, last season’s runners up Manchester United and third place finishers Arsenal. At whatever stage of the season and despite a team’s form, home or away, these are tough games to play and particularly difficult at the start of a season. They become doubly difficult when the games are almost back to back as they were for the Reds.
