Norwich City will play host to Liverpool in the early game on Saturday and Carrow Road is sure to be jammed as the Canaries look to get a win that will move them away from the relegation zone. Norwich City have been in free fall having lost their last three. Cameron Jerome, Mbokani, Brady and Hoolohan will take the game to Liverpool in a game that suits Norwich in my opinion. Liverpool play a high tempo pressure game under Jurgen Klopp and will look to press this Norwich team who also play a pressing game especially at home. Robbie Brady and Wes Hoolohan are the key figures in creating chances for Norwich and Brady's delivieries from set pieces will be key here as Liverpool's weaknesses appear to be at corners and free kicks. Cameron Jerome and new signing Stephen Naismith will be a handful up front against a Liverpool backline who are decimated by injury.
Liverpool new signing Stephen Caulker could get a start at center back as the injury crisis among centre backs in the club reaches crisis point. Jurgen Klopp will look to Milner, Henderson and Firminho to lead the way up front but without the injured Couthino and Sturridge I think that it could be time for Klopp to put his faith in Chrisitan Benteke as the £32.m signing from Aston Villa needs games to get his match fitness up and Liverpool need a focal point for their attack which they did not have against Manchester United until Benteke came on. While Henderson, Llallana and Firminho drifted in and out of the strikers role, none of them created anything that could have been called a great chance and I think that the reds need Benteke up top.
Tough game here but with Norwich at home at 10/3 I think the Canaries represnt plenty of value here and I'm going to take Norwich the home underdogs to pull off an upset here and pile more pressure on an underperforming Liverpool.
