Thoughts From Both Camps

“My first match potentially being against Liverpool is a nice coincidence, but just being involved is great in itself. It’s going to be a tough game because they have some great players, so we have to be ready for it.
At home especially we’ve looked strong, from what I’ve seen. I’ve always had to fight throughout my career, and the Club is fighting to stay in the league, so I’m relishing the opportunity.”

– Steven Naismith, Norwich City.

“I’ve always said the creating of chances is the mother of goals. We have to create chances then the more often we are in the situation, the more often we have to take the right decision. But the only way is to carry on and in this moment the boys have to make these decisions by themselves and it’s always better to shoot than not to shoot.”

– Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Head-2-Head statistics, Norwich have not won any of their last six meetings with Liverpool, with the Kops winning five of those matches. Although Norwich are undefeated in their last five matches in the Premier League, Liverpool have won convincingly during their previous four trips to Carrow Road, scoring at least three goals in the last three games.

Liverpool will start as favorites tomorrow and are likely to win with 2-0 being the most probable scoreline.
