Reds Really Need A Win

Suarez scored all three against Norwich last season...

Liverpool are at Carrow Road for Saturday's fixture as Brendan's boys look to carry their momentum through from their win in the league cup. The game against West Brom included several of Liverpool's youngsters and it will be interesting to see if any of them feature at the weekend.

Norwich are without Kane who broke his foot midweek and they also have doubts hanging over Pilkington and Bassong. Liverpool are still without Shelvey who is serving a ban and Borini is also a doubt. Daniel Agger however could make a return after he picked up a knock in a collision during the United game.

Nobody will have forgotten the last meeting between the two sides because it included that rather special Luis Suarez hat trick! Norwich haven't played us as regularly as some teams and so they have to go back to 1993 to find a win for themselves.

Norwich only recorded their first league win this season in their last match and Liverpool are still waiting for their own. Whilst Norwich haven't lost by very big margins (aside from the Fulham game) they have still conceded in 5 out of 7 league games. Liverpool however have also conceded a load of goals too.

Stat Sandwich

  • If Suarez features it will be his 50th Premier League appearance.
  • Norwich have the lowest conversion rate so far this season.
  • Liverpool have only one clean sheet from their last 15 league games.

I really hope the Reds can find that win they desperately need on Saturday. It seems as though this is the stage where our season should start. We haven't necessarily played that badly it's just good opposition and sometimes decisions have got in the way. 

No offence to Norwich but Liverpool have to be looking at this as their chance for three points. I get the feeling too that after the West Brom game some younger faces might get a chance to come on as a sub. Also Assaidi and Sahin who haven't really been given game time could also feature.

Enjoy the match folks!
