Norwich’s bubble looks to have burst following five Premier League matches without a win, four of which were defeats. So, with the relegation demons that they worked so hard to fight off starting to re-emerge from under the floorboards, the last thing they need is a repeat of the 5-2 drubbing they suffered when they last played Liverpool.
These factors, combined with the Canaries’ woeful away form that has only heralded one league win all season, sees the hosts priced as short as 1/3 for the win at Anfield, while Norwich are a sky-scraping 15/2 to dispel the panic and win the match, though they would gladly take a point which is a 4/1 shot.
Just once in league action have they managed to net more than one goal on the road this season, but have only failed to find the net three times. This lends value to the 10/11 on offer for both teams to notch in this clash, while the same eventuality coupled with a Liverpool win pays out a tasty 2/1.
One player who will be looking forward to this match in particular will be Luis Suarez, especially after failing to make a mark at Old Trafford last weekend.
He’s taken home the match ball on the previous two occasions in which he’s taken on the Canaries backline and, although these took place at Carrow Road, a price of 8/1 says he’ll complete a hat-trick of hat-tricks against this opposition. On a more likely note, 5/2 is the dividend available should you back him to break the deadlock.
Norwich claimed an unlikely point in this fixture last term; Grant Holt’s equaliser entitling them to a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw.
Chris Hughton would snap your hand off if you offered him that result now and it’s available to back at 10/1, while talismanic Holt is a 9/1 shot to conclude the scoring on Merseyside for the second season running.
