Match Preview: Norwich City vs Liverpool

Date & time: February 15th 2020, 17:30

Where: Carrow Road

Is it on: Sky Sports

Ref: Stuart Attwell

Finally...it's back! It's been so long. It hasn't been all that long actually, less than two weeks. But when the Red men are in such amazing form it feels like a life-time.


Liverpool will take a full-strength team to take on the Premier League's rock bottom team tomorrow night at Carrow Road, as big favourites.


Daniel Farke's team currently sit 20th, 6 points behind 19th placed Watford and 7 points from 17th. Their job could not be any harder as they prepare for the leader's visit.


Liverpool sit on 73 points, the highest total ever amassed by this stage of the season and a ridiculous 55 points ahead of tomorrow's opponents. It just shows you the size of the task.


Another win would put Liverpool on to 76 points, and put us 25 points ahead of Man City, who have a game in hand, after their match last weekend was postponed.


It's not yet known when that will take place, but the psychological impact of another win on our nearest 'challengers' could be devastating. It'll be another step closer for the Reds.

Injuries & Suspension

No new injuries to report for tomorrow's match, but the boss reported today Shaqiri is still out and won't take any part.


Otherwise we have a fully fit squad to choose from, and the closest we've come to that since the start of the season.


For the home team, the only major injury is Timm Klose who has been out all season. So Farke has a fully fit squad to choose from.


Last 5 games:

Norwich City (all comps): L-W-L-W-D Liverpool (all comps): W-W-D-W-W

Predicted Line up

It's got to be full strength, hasn't it? We wouldn't be at all surprised to see a tweak or two, with Atletico Madrid coming on Tuesday night.


But tomorrow is as much of a 'must win' as any game we've played this season, and considering Norwich's position, it's a 'should' win as well.


So whichever team Klopp fields should stand as good a chance of any of taking all three points. Three games in a week will be tough, but that's what the Winter break was about.

Starting XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino.
