Match in Focus

Norwich v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Liverpool have scored 15 goals in their last three league meetings with Norwich
Expert verdict
Liverpool's title charge is unlikely to be halted at Norwich – a team they have beaten 5-2, 5-0 and 5-1 in their last three meetings. Luis Suarez has scored 11 goals in his last four games against the Canaries, who are in woeful form and may struggle to contain the rampant Reds.
