Away success lifts Liverpool

Liverpool FC moved fifth with a 2-1 victory at Norwich City FC on a day of four Premiership matches.

Liverpool FC moved fifth in the Premiership with a 2-1 victory at relegation-threatened Norwich City FC, while there were successes for two other struggling clubs in Monday's matches.

Decisive spell
Goals from Spanish forward Luis García and Norwegian midfield player John Arne Riise within five minutes in the second half sealed Liverpool's victory at Carrow Road. The Merseyside team moved up to 37 points, two ahead of Middlesbrough FC, who visit leaders Chelsea FC on Tuesday.

Johnson double
Crystal Palace FC, meanwhile, climbed out of the relegation zone with a 2-0 win at home to Aston Villa FC, and Blackburn Rovers FC overcame Charlton Athletic FC 1-0 to rise one place to 15th. Striker Andy Johnson was Palace's hero against Villa, scoring in each half to seal his side's fourth victory of the season and first since October.

Emerton winner
At Ewood Park, Blackburn's Australian midfield player Brett Emerton headed in David Thompson's 41st-minute cross to secure victory for Mark Hughes's struggling team. Charlton remain eighth in the standings.

Late game
In Monday's late game, West Bromwich Albion FC remained bottom despite holding Newcastle United FC to a scoreless draw at The Hawthorns. The visitors had all the early pressure, with West Brom goalkeeper Russell Hoult saving from Titus Bramble and Shola Ameobi and Lee Bowyer's shot striking a post. Geoff Horsfield spurned West Brom's best chance.

Midweek matches
On Tuesday, second-placed Arsenal FC are at home to Manchester City FC, Manchester United FC entertain Tottenham Hotspur FC, Portsmouth FC visit Everton FC and Birmingham City FC face Bolton Wanderers FC. Southampton FC meet Fulham FC on Wednesday.
