Norwich City Preview – Canaries need points, and urgently…

Seeing as how their next opponents have beaten near enough all comers this season, this fixture could almost be interpreted as a free-hit for most teams. Unfortunately for Norwich (20th – W4 D6 L15), who are rock-bottom of the league and seven points from safety, they are in no position to be viewing this as anything other than another huge opportunity to add some precious points on the board in their desperate attempts to avoid the drop.

So, how does a team bottom of the pile in the Premier League topple not only the table-toppers but a side as imperious as this Liverpool one? Well, The Canaries have, by some minor crumb of comfort, been marginally better at Carrow Road, with three of their four victories coming there (W3 D3 L6). The latest, which was a 1-0 win over Bournemouth on 18 January, did actually extend their unbeaten run on home soil to three games (W1 D2) having previously held Crystal Palace (1-1) and Tottenham (2-2).

Norwich last failed to score at home in early November – a run of sixth straight said matches managing at least one goal. Moreover, their 3-2 victory there over Man City in September remains one of the biggest upsets of the season thus far. So there is enough cause for optimism if you delve deep enough. Though the cold reality is that this team has lost six of its last twelve league encounters, winning only once in that time (W1 D5 L6), and has the worst defensive record in the division (47 conceded in 25 games).

Liverpool Preview – Relentless Reds to show no mercy…

The countdown is on. Liverpool (1st – W24 D1 L0) are now almost certain, barring something truly extraordinary occurring, to end the long wait for a first Premier League title, but such has been their unrelenting approach to each and every game that this special team are on course to do so in the quickest and most emphatic manner ever. Jurgen Klopp’s side will extend their lead to an astonishing 25-points should they make it win number 25 from their 26th fixture.

It would be a huge shock were another win here not to materialise, although, despite their incredible performance up until now, if there is to be another slip-up then there is every chance of it occurring on the road. The Reds are W11 D1 away from Anfield, with a goal difference of +19. However, the majority (6) of their eleven away wins were slender in margin (one goal) and not without one or two elements of good fortune. It’s a small chink but a chink nonetheless.

Yet the likelihood of Klopp’s men allowing any complacency to creep when a first league crown is within sight, all whilst eyeing up various records along the way, seems a long shot. It is also worth remembering that Liverpool are now two more wins from equalling the record for most consecutive PL wins – the 18 that was set by Man City in 2017-18 – so will be focused on maintaining the same levels of intensity and standards this weekend. They may even receive a timely boost with the return to fitness of Sadio Mane.

Norwich City Vs Liverpool Betting Advice

If we look hard enough, we can find a few reasons as to why Liverpool might come unstuck. In reality, though, that is improbable. The Reds are in Champions League action in midweek but I doubt even that will entice Jurgen Klopp into changing from his usual set-up. Meaning a side boasting sixteen straight league wins takes on a Norwich outfit bottom of the table, with one win in the last twelve and the leakiest backline in the top-flight.

Norwich City Vs Liverpool – Key Facts:

  • Three of Norwich‘s four Premier League victories in 2019/20 were earned at Carrow Road, scoring a minimum of one goal in each of their previous six fixtures staged on home soil.
  • Liverpool are targeting a 17th consecutive Premier League victory and a ninth on the spin away from home, since a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford with Man Utd on 20 October 2019.
  • This will be the 12th Premier League meeting. Liverpool winning nine and drawing two of the previous eleven encounters, while they’ve never dropped a point at Carrow Road (W5).

As mentioned, more than half of Liverpool’s away wins this season were by a one-goal margin. That bet is 3/1 (Boylesports). Eight, meanwhile, featured three or match goals. However, there is also a possibility Norwich could contribute to proceedings. The Canaries scoring in each of the last six as the home side, while there has been five instances whereby Liverpool picked up the win on their travels despite the absence of a clean sheet. Liverpool & Both To Score is 9/5 with the same firm.
