Norwich City head to Andfield on Saturday afternoon to play Liverpool in what promises to be a vital Premier League encounter. It is a daunting task for the Canaries who have slipped away in recent weeks while Liverpool will be hoping to bounce back from their narrow defeat at Man United last weekend. The betting suggests that there is only one winner with Liverpool the hot favourites to pick up all three points with all the major online firms.
Last weekend Liverpool put up a brave showing at Old Trafford before ultimately losing and Brendan Rodgers will know that a win against Norwich will be vital. The Reds heave a tough away trip to Arsenal on the horizon so three points here is a must as they look to haul themselves towards the top six of the Premier League table. All eyes will be on Luis Suarez on Saturday as he looks to continue a remarkable run of form against Norwich which has seen him score back-to-back hat-tricks against the Canaries.
The Uruguayan seems to love East Anglia having hit six goals on his last two visits to Carrow Road and Norwich will be hoping that run doesn't continue at Anfield on Saturday. Few would be surprised if it did though with Suarez in great form this season and he could well be the difference on Saturday afternoon. Punters wanting to back Liverpool to win the match by any score line can currently get a skinny looking price of 3/10 with Paddy Power.
As for Norwich they currently find themselves sitting in mid table which is still pretty good although their form in recent weeks is something of a concern. The Canaries have not won a Premier League game since beating Wigan on the 15th December and Chris Hughton will know that they cannot afford for that run to continue for much longer. They have picked up one or two injuries to their strikers which is an explanation for their poor recent run but they will be boosted by the return of Grant Holt who is of course their talisman.
Norwich are facing a mammoth task at Anfield but they can take hope from the corresponding fixture last season when they picked up a very creditable draw. Punters wanting to back the Canaries to go one better than that though can get a big looking price of 8/1 with Paddy Power about them winning the match by score line.
On this occasion though we cannot see past Liverpool with Brendan Rodgers and his team looking in decent form over the past few weeks. New signing Daniel Sturridge has added a different dimension to attack but it is Luis Suarez who we fancy to run the Norwich defence ragged once again this weekend. The little man from Uruguay seems to up his game when he sees the yellow shirts of Norwich and punters wanting to back him to score his third successive hat-trick against them can currently get 11/2 with Paddy Power.
Tip 1 - The match to produce more than 2.5 goals @ 4/9 with Paddy Power
Tip 2 - Luis suarez to score a hat-trick @ 11/2 with Paddy Power
Tip 3 - Back Liverpool/Liverpool in the half-time/full-time betting @ 5/6 with Paddy Power
