Liverpool will look to end its exile from the top four this weekend when it hosts Norwich City at Anfield.
Saturday’s match will be only the second meeting between these sides in the past decade. The two clubs clashed during the 2004-05 Premiership season, with Liverpool winning both those matches, winning their home fixture 3-0.
Liverpool has won three of its last five matches, drawn one, and lost its most recent fixture – a club friendly against Rangers in Glasgow. Liverpool is unbeaten in its last three Premiership matches.
Liverpool has put away 7 goals in its last five matches. While the forwards have not been scintillating, they’ve scored often enough to take the pressure off a defence that has let in 4 goals in the same period of time.
Norwich fans won’t be complaining about their side’s performance in the Premiership, with the club currently ranked 9th on the league table, and having taken three wins and two defeats out of its last five matches.
The Norwhich strikers have been steady enough, scoring 7 goals in five games. The club needs to tighten up on defence, however, having conceded 6 goals in five matches.
Norwich City has done well against mid-table sides this season, but is probably still some way off challenging a Premiership superpower at home. Norwich is also having to deal with a slew of injuries, with four players unavailable for selection.
Liverpool has been rock-solid at home this season, and is unbeaten in all competitions at Anfield. If the mighty Man United couldn’t beat the Reds at Anfield, then it’s unlikely Norwich City will go one better.
With this in mind our Liverpool vs. Norwich City betting tip is to take a straight back bet on the Reds at the best odds you can find.
