Norwich v Liverpool: match preview

To say Jürgen Klopp would be disappointed to leave Carrow Road without three points would be an understatement. Norwich have taken only two of the last 42 points on offer between the sides, conceding at least three goals in seven of their past nine meetings and a whopping five in three of the last eight. Still, Daniel Farke’s side will feel under less pressure to make an immediate impact and Liverpool’s midfield remains a relatively unknown quantity since Georginio Wijnaldum’s departure. The Kosovan international Milot Rashica is an exciting home addition and could give the Reds something to think about at left-back in the absence of Andy Robertson. Kostas Tsimikas will hope for a rare chance but with an embarrassment of riches at centre-back now fit and available following last season’s injury nightmares, Klopp does have the option of changing formation to start three of them.
