Video Highlights: Norwich City 0-3 Liverpool

Kenny Dalglish has hailed a 'fantastic team performance' after watching his side cruise to a well deserved 3-0 victory at Norwich.

Luis Suarez was the hero with a memorable hat-trick as the Reds began warming up for next weekend's FA Cup final in style.

While acknowledging the brilliance of Suarez on the day at Carrow Road, the boss was also keen to pay tribute to all those involved in such a convincing victory.

Video: What’s the pundits says about Norwich v Liverpool?

lfc-norwich-300x200According to Steve Bower of BBC Sport, Norwich will again be without centre-back Zak Whitbread, who is nursing a groin problem.

Fellow defenders Daniel Ayala and Marc Tierney remain side-lined by knee and groin injuries respectively.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard may return after being rested for last weekend's home defeat against West Bromwich Albion.

Fellow midfielder Charlie Adam has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

A glance at the table just about sums up the contrasting emotions of these two clubs in this Premier League season. Who would have thought when the fixtures were produced that Norwich would trail Liverpool by just three points going into this match? Whilst it speaks volumes for the remarkable efforts of all connected at Carrow Road, it only highlights Liverpool's domestic inconsistencies once again.

Whilst 2012 may yet be remembered for two successes in cup competitions, only bottom club Wolves have picked up fewer top-flight points than Liverpool since the turn of the year - it's 12 from a possible 45 for the Reds. In fact, unless they pick up eight points from their last four games they will be left with their lowest ever tally in the Premier League.

This fixture is one of many reminders of a frustrating season. Back in October they hit the woodwork twice and produced a string of fine saves from John Ruddy as Norwich became one of 12 clubs to leave Anfield with at least a point. Remarkably, the Reds have recorded two more wins away from Anfield than at home. Now they have two more matches to play before their Wembley meeting with Chelsea to try to improve things slightly. Last season they finished 10 points off the top four - the current gap is 16 points.

Norwich will relish the visit of Liverpool in their penultimate home game of the campaign, and will try to beat them on home turf for the first time in 19 years since the memorable days under Mike Walker. They've lost only two of their last eight at Carrow Road and those defeats were against both Manchester clubs. Paul Lambert would dearly love another landmark day in an incredible season, and will hope to put one over Dalglish, who he briefly played under at Celtic.

Video: Liverpool FC will backed Suarez on Evra racism row

Kenny Dalglish insisted that Luis Suarez has the full support of everyone at Liverpool Football Club following allegations made in the aftermath of last weekend's clash with Manchester United.

   "The only thing we'll say, and then that is it put to bed, is that this Football club and everyone at the club is totally and utterly behind Luis Suarez.

"There was an allegation after the game about him diving all over the place and then there was an allegation from Patrice Evra.

"Obviously the two things are quite emotive, but we fully support the wee man in both things and everyone at the club does.

"I think the football club came out at the start of the week and made our position known - and apart from what I've said there, we won't be adding to it.

"We fully look forward to a complete, transparent report from the FA and look forward to co-operating 100 per cent fully with what is done." - Dalglish told reporters at Melwood in a pre-match conference.

Liverpool 1-1 Norwich City Match Report

Liverpool was hoping to put newly promoted Norwich to the sword in their quest for at least a top 4 place. Liverpool who drew 1-1 with Manchester United last weekend would be hoping to get back to winning ways against Paul Lambert’s charges. Norwich have impressed so far this season with their style of play, they have played an attractive attacking style with tremendous displays without reward at Chelsea and more recently at Old Trafford. Norwich go into the match on the back of great win against Swansea last weekend and will give them great confidence.


Dalglish made two changes to the side that drew with Manchester United last week with Glen Johnson coming in for Kelly and Craig Bellamy replacing the suspended Lucas. A big night for Dirk Kuyt making his 250th appearance for Liverpool. Liverpool started with a very attacking line-up with Gerrard and Adam in the middle of midfield with Downing on the right and Bellamy on the left of midfield with Kuyt and Suarez up front. Andy Carroll had to be content with starting on the bench once again.


Liverpool attacked from the start and almost took the lead inside two minutes when Skrtel headed off the bar from an Adam corner, then two minutes later Suarez made a brilliant turn before shooting wide.

Liverpool were dominating the early stages with Suarez and his brilliant best. Then in the 10th minute Bellamy made a great run down the left before crossing low to Suarez and his first time effort was tipped onto the post. Moments later Suarez tried a chip from outside the box but it floated over the bar.

The chances kept coming for Liverpool and another one went a begging when Suarez shot wide after being played in by Johnson. But Norwich showed the threat they had Morrison powered a header straight at Reina from a corner kick. Then moments later Norwich had another effort from long range saved by Reina.

Then on the half hour mark Kuyt had a header blocked from a corner. Liverpool continued to create chances as the half wore on, but just as it looked as Norwich would hold until half-time Liverpool took the lead after tussle for the ball involving Suarez broke to Bellamy who ran into the box before shooting past Ruddy via a deflection.

Norwich started the second half sharply and Pilkington was unlucky with a low shot bringing out a save from Reina. A minute later Kuyt couldn’t direct his header on target from a Downing cross as Liverpool responded.

A few minutes later a piece of brilliance on the edge of the box by Suarez left the Norwich defence bewildered but his shot was deflected onto the post as he cursed his luck. Liverpool was still threatening and Gerrard made one of his trademark runs into the box but he shot weakly.

But Norwich drew level on the hour mark when Adam lost possession looking for a foul and Pilkington’s dangerous was headed into the Liverpool by substitute Holt who beat Reina to the ball.

Shortly after Holt could have scored a second with another header but for a great reaction save from Reina. Norwich were certainly encouraged by the goal and Liverpool were struggling to find their first half fluency.

Dalglish brought on Henderson for Bellamy and Carroll for Downing in the latter stages to try and win the game but it wasn’t until stoppage time when the best chances came first a brilliant cross from Gerrard found the head of Carroll but his header went agonisingly wide from 6 yards out. Then with just about the last kick of the ball Suarez smashed a volley on target but Ruddy pulled off an amazing save to earn Norwich a point and leave Liverpool frustrated.


I was expecting nothing less than a win here tonight as I feel we have to win these type of games if we are to challenge this season. I liked the look of the team Kenny selected as it had a very attacking look about it. We started on fire and could have been four up inside 20 minutes but couldn’t get one. I just had a bit of a feeling these missed chances could come back to haunt us and unfortunately it did. We had some great attacking play, especially from Downing and Bellamy on the flanks and Suarez was causing all sorts of problems, the only thing lacking from him was he couldn’t find the net. The referee didn’t give Suarez much as I felt he was constantly fouled, leaving the striker frustrated. We did lose a bad goal as Norwich posed more of a threat second half, with Reina getting caught out. But these things can happen. We were very unlucky right at the end with Carroll and then Suarez’s volley. I’m left very disappointed with the result as both Chelsea and Manchester United have struggled against Norwich this season but managed to win, where we failed to. But I’m very encouraged with the performance and the amount of chances we created and I’m sure the goals will come over a very long season.

Man Of The Match – Suarez – once again, unplayable at time, lost count of the number of attempts he had on goal, only a goal was missing from his night.

Preview: Liverpool FC v Norwich City

Liverpool will be looking to better their home record this weekend following a 1-1 draw with champions Manchester United and begin to make a statement of intent for this season.  The Reds have produced a decent run of results as of late, but even first team coach Steve Clarke believes their start is not up to their full potential.  The Reds will look to hit that top hear this weekend against Norwich City, who haven’t been in the top flight since the 2004/2005 campaign.

History is on Liverpool’s side in this fixture with the Reds bagging a total of 13 wins at home all-time, however Paul Lambert’s side has put on some strong displays against Manchester United and fellow new-boys Swansea City.  Norwich are coming off the back of a 3-1 over Swansea, and will be hoping their form can continue at Anfield, where the Reds are yet to keep a clean sheet.

Luis Suarez is likely to return to the starting line-up after being rested in Tuesday’s 1-0 loss to Rangers, and could start alongside Andy Carroll.  Carroll started in Tuesday’s match, and though chances have come slim this season, Dalglish could change up his side again.  Liverpool are yet to find a working partnership amongst their quad-set of strikers, but could be feeling the pressure of Carroll’s price-tag yet to be justified.

Liverpool fans will go into the game with a sense of nervousness knowing that recent history has not been kind to them in a game like this.  Over the years Liverpool have seemingly out-performed themselves against the big-guns and under-achieved against opponents in the bottom half of the table.  Dalglish knows that to get Liverpool back amongst the elite, results must be ground out on all fronts, but if Liverpool are to be taken seriously, a fine display against a rather strong Norwich side could kick start a good string of results for the Reds before a strong November sees them travel to Chelsea and host Manchester City.

Lucas Leiva serves a one-match suspension for Liverpool so Jordan Henderson, dropped to the bench for the last two matches, may regain his starting place.

Defenders Daniel Agger (rib) and Glen Johnson (hamstring) are fully fit again after playing in the midweek friendly defeat to Rangers.

Norwich City, however, will be no pushovers.

Midfielder Anthony Pilkington talked up the Canaries’ confidence and motivation against big-name opponents: "These are the games we need to win. We like to go everywhere believing we can win and believing we can cause an upset," Pilkington said.

Steve Morison has been a constant threat up front for the Canaries alongside Pilkington and Grant Holt, and is integral to Norwich’s attacking play.

Liverpool (probable line-up): Reina, Kelly, Carragher, Skrtel, Enrique, Henderson, Gerrard(c), Adam, Downing, Kuyt, Suarez

Norwich (probable line-up): Ruddy, Naughton, Barnett, Martin, Tierney, Bennett, Fox, Johnson, Pilkington, Hoolahan(c), Morison

Three-way battle to sign Liverpool defender

Norwich have joined Swansea and Hull in the race for Liverpool’s Spanish defender Daniel Ayala. Hull and Swansea have both reportedly bid £850,000 for the 20-year-old defender.

But only news from the Liverpool camp is that the Reds agreed fee with Hull City.

If the rumours are to be true, Swansea and Norwich are the better options for Ayala to consider as both teams has been newly promoted from the Championship.
