Liverpool return to action this weekend with a relatively straight forward game against bottom-of-the-table Norwich – yeah, right!
When it comes to Norwich versus Liverpool, things are rarely straight forward. This is a fixtures that produces an abundance of goals, a plethora of excitement and usually just the one winner – Liverpool.
Since 2012, the two clubs have crossed paths on eight occasions. In that time, Jurgen Klopp’s men have managed seven wins and one draw.
However, the stat which really grabs attention is the number of goals in those past eight games – 40. But don’t be fooled. You may think that the vast majority of those goals have come from the men in Red – that’s not exactly true.
In fact, Liverpool have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last seven games with the Canaries. Two of the last four games have ended with Liverpool winning by a one goal margin (4-5 and 2-3) with another of those four games ending in a draw.
While Liverpool are huge favourites, we do expect plucky little Norwich to once again give them a run for their money.
Looking at Daniel Farke’s men, they’ve actually picked up some decent results over the past four games and don’t forget, they’re desperate for points to try and avoid relegation.
Based on all this info, the recommendation is to back a Liverpool win and both teams to score at 9/5. This is a decent price considering this bet has landed in seven of the last ten encounters between both teams.
Liverpool to win and both teams to score – 9/5 888Sport*
