Norwich vs Liverpool – These are not the old canaries

Posted by

The 3-2 victory against Manchester City has left Liverpool with four wins from winning the title and our first game of the four is away to Norwich, oh it looks easy on paper however don’t be mislead.

Norwich can be a tough nut to crack if we don’t score early on Sunday, they are currently fighting for their lives so they will make our life difficult as they are desperate to pick up something in order to keep their Premier League survival hopes alive.

Daniel Sturridge will likely not start, he picked up a knock against Manchester City and although he is recovering I would assume that Brendan will not risk him and opt to start him on the bench. Jordan Henderson is missing too as he is banned for three games following the red card he received in the dying seconds of the City game. My thought is that Brendan will play both Joe Allen and Lucas Leiva and re do the formation. I think Brendan will opt to start with Sakho again over Agger so the other starting nine will be the same as the ones who started against City.

Of course everyone will be talking about Luis Suarez before the game, he has already scored three hat-ricks against Norwich so I am sure that the bookies are taking bets on a Suarez fourth hat-trick. I personally will be happy with a 1-0 victory as three points are paramount however we need to keep an eye on that goal differential as it might come down to that and City’s G.D. is a little better.

Predicted Liverpool Starting XI : Mignolet, Johnson, Flanagan, Sakho, Skrtel, Gerrard, Lucas , Allen, Coutinho, Sterling, Suarez

Predicted Liverpool Subs : Jones, Toure, Cissokho, Agger, Moses, Aspas, Sturridge
