Suarez Sublime In Norwich Win

Image
Finally, the Reds can chalk up a victory in the Premier League under boss Brendan Rodgers and in some style too. Rodgers after clearly being impressed by some of his youngsters filtering through the side went for a rather different starting XI against Norwich on Saturday, add to this that Suarez was on song, it was a comfortable victory for Liverpool with the only downside being that they conceded.

Rodgers gave Suso and Wisdom their first Premier League starts whilst opting to play Raheem Sterling once again. Also included was Sahin who scored two against West Brom in the league cup.

Possession according to the BBC ended up 50/50 after the 90 minutes but vitally for Liverpool this time they had maintained their portion of the ball and made sure they hit the back of the net at the same time.

Luis Suarez immediately cemented his love for Carrow Road just 2 minutes in. Glen Johnson cut inside and attempted to play a ball through to Sahin but he couldn't quite collect, the defensive …

Reds Really Need A Win

Image
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 have…

Sahin who was born in Germany but plays for Turkey celebrates his brace...
Liverpool took on Steve Clarke's West Brom at The Hawthorns on Wednesday night and despite things not immediately going to plan the Reds very youthful side eventually managed to calmly and confidently win the game and take their side through to the next round of the Capital One Cup.

Brendan Rodgers made eleven changes to the team that lined up in front of Manchester United and the majority of that eleven were academy products. After the success of Raheem Sterling in the first team and the glimmer of Suso during the Manchester United game it is clear the boss is not afraid to put his faith in the younger lads.

Carragher was easily the most experienced for Liverpool but Downing and Henderson also added some support for the rest of the side.

It didn't take long for the first goal of the game to crop up, unfortunately for Liverpool it was a goal that could of been prevented. Brad Jones commanded his area an…

Liverpool Look To Book Place In Group Stages

Image
Liverpool welcome Hearts to Anfield on Thursday evening as they aim to book their place in the Europa League group stages. With a 1-0 win at Tynecastle it's the Reds who hold the advantage but the tie is far from over.

After a strong performance against Manchester City (minus those silly mistakes) Liverpool are in a more comfortable position going into this fixture compared to the match at Hearts which was played after Liverpool had fell to a 3-0 defeat.

Brendan Rodgers will surely look to make some changes to the side that lined up against Manchester City. Daniel Agger may feature after serving his ban and also new signing Nuri Sahin may get his first chance to impress the Anfield faithful.

Raheem Sterling is the starlet on everyone's lips at the moment and although some people feel he may not start due to playing the whole 90 minutes at the weekend I think there's a very big chance we'll be seeing him Thursday night.

Hearts on the other hand I would assume will not …

Champions Come To Anfield

Image
Liverpool welcome Mancini's side to Anfield on Sunday as they look to improve on their performance against West Brom last weekend. Most fans looking at this fixture would agree that anything is a bonus and so the pressure is somewhat off, this is the kind of game last season that we'd come out in and we always seemed to fair better against bigger opposition, but will it be the same again for Brendan this year?

Liverpool are without Daniel Agger who is serving a ban for the red card he picked up last weekend and Joe Cole is still out injured. It is believed Jose Enrique is available for selection again. Manchester City suffered a big blow after Aguero was ruled out with a knee injury. Also unavailable for City are Richards and Barry.

The last time the two sides met was in January this year when Liverpool secured their progression to the Carling Cup final at Wembley. Craig Bellamy was on the score sheet in the 2-2 draw.

Liverpool today have agreed a loan deal to bring Nuri Sahi…
