    Premier League LIVE! Norwich v Liverpool

    Probable Lineups:

    Norwich (4-3-1-2): Ruddy, Whittaker, Turner, Martin, Olsson, Johnson, Fer, Howson, Snodgrass, van Wolfswinkel, Redmond

    Norwich are looking desperately over their shoulder with Fulham in 18th only two points behind. The Canaries have lost three games on the trot without scoring a single goal, which has been a major issue for Norwich under Chris Hughton. However now with Neil Adams in charge the manager has tried a narrow 4-4-2 or 4-3-1-2 against Fulham but still came out empty handed. Michael Turner is set to return and partner Russell Martin in the center of defence while Robert Snodgrass sits on top of the midfield diamond in support of Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Nathan Redmond.

    Liverpool (4-3-1-2): Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Flanagan, Coutinho, Gerrard, Allen, Sterling, Sturridge, Suárez

    Liverpool now sit on top of the Premier League table after a thrilling 3-2 win over Manchester City and are truly on course to lift their first Premier League title since its inception in 1992. Brendan Rodgers deployed a much narrower 4-3-1-2 formation against City and could do so again against Norwich at Carrow Road. Jordan Henderson was sent off for a rash tackle last weekend and will be replaced by Joe Allen to partner Philippe Coutinho and Steven Gerrard in the middle of the park. Raheem Sterling will start ‘in the hole’ behind Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, although Sturridge has a slight hamstring problem and may have to sit out.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Everyone will be talking about Luis Suarez’s goals for this match, but here’s a beauty from Norwich’s Justin Fashanu against Liverpool back in 1980.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Suarez

    Who else? Luis Suarez has scored 11 goals in his four previous games against the Canaries and is theoretically the obvious choice for captain this weekend.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Norwich vs. Liverpool: An Alternative Preview

    Norwich have lost eight and won none of their last nine Barclays Premier League games against Liverpool, conceding five goals in each of the last three.

    Luis Suarez has scored 11 goals in five Barclays Premier League meetings with Norwich, including a PL-record three hat-tricks.

    Liverpool have scored 93 goals already this season, more than they ever have before in a top-flight season.

    No team has scored more than 90 goals in the English top-flight and not won the title since West Brom in 1965-66 (came sixth).

    Liverpool last won 11+ top-flight games in succession in October 1990 (12 in total). Only once have they won 11 in a row within a single season (May 1982).

    Liverpool’s last two wins have come without Suarez or Sturridge scoring, their only such victories of the season.

    Martin Skrtel is the top scoring defender in the Premier League this season (seven goals).

    Norwich have conceded only 13 home goals in the Premier League this season, fewer than Liverpool at Anfield and a figure bettered by only three teams.

    Suarez has scored more goals against Norwich than 24 Premier League teams have managed.

    Liverpool need one more goal to reach 50 in the Premier League in 2014.
