Reds To Face Canaries

Kuyt in action last year against Norwich...
Liverpool face the Canaries on Saturday as they look to end April on a high. Norwich have lost their last two league games but they have been a breath of fresh air since they were promoted from the Championship last year.

Injuries for Liverpool mean they are without Charlie Adam but captain Steven Gerrard was back in training and is expected to be available for Saturday's game. Norwich are without ex Reds man Daniel Ayala who is suffering from a knee injury and also unavailable is Marc Tierney.

The last time the two sides met was in October. A 1-1 draw in which Liverpool played quite well was a string of many poor results at Anfield for the Reds this season.

The last time Norwich beat Liverpool at Carew Road was in 1993 which to be fair isn't that long ago considering how infrequently the sides have met.

Stat Sandwich

  • Liverpool have won 7 away league games this season.
  • Norwich have only kept two clean sheets this season in the league.
  • The Reds have only converted 9% of shots into goals in the Premier League this season.

With the FA Cup final pretty much just around the corner and another league game against Fulham before that it will be interesting to see who Dalglish starts. I personally would go for a strong line up, we could do with a win in the league and I don't really think the game play will be detrimental to the lads chances in the FA Cup.

However with most players fit and a pretty large squad, the boss could easily mix and match and still have a pretty strong side out against Norwich.

With rumours flying around that Dirk Kuyt could be off in the summer I'd love to see some more of the Dutchman and would like to see him start on Saturday. I also assume Henderson will start and I must admit I'm not his greatest fan but in the last couple of matches (considering the games on a whole were poor) i think he's done quite well.

I predict a 1-0 win for Liverpool, I can't see anything spectacular happening but here's hoping I'm wrong.

Enjoy the match folks!
