Premier League Preview for Liverpool v Norwich City along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Liverpool were shocked by Hull City in Sunday’s match. After going down 1-0 they were able to respond with a Steven Gerrard free kick to level the score, but were never able to capitalize on their 62% possession. This was a match in which the 3-5-2 formation did not work out well and left them exposed as the match wore on. Not only did they allow 12 shots (4 on target and two blocked) but they were only able to get off 9 shots while putting four on target.
Norwich showed some signs of bouncing back with their 1-0 home win over Crystal Palace. They dominated possession with 60% of the ball but probably should have done more with it. They had 3 of their 10 shots on goal while hitting the woodwork once and having three shots blocked. The win is a boost for them and moves them up the table with 14 points.
My prediction is for a Liverpool win. They return home where they are 5-0-1 this season while scoring 13 goals and allowing three including scoring three or more goals in their last three home Premier League matches. This compares to Norwich’s away record this EPL season in which they are 1-0-5. They have given up 16 goals and scored only three.
Betting Odds: Liverpool win: 1.23-1.29; Draw: 6.04-6.50; Norwich win: 11.
Form: Liverpool (D, W, L, W, D, L) Norwich (L, D, L, W, L, W)
