Liverpool are currently the butt of everyone's jokes following their 3-1 mauling by Hull, tomorrow they have the perfect chance to redeem themselves against a Norwich side that has numerous injuries. Norwich have only scored 11 goals which is the joint 3rd worst tally in the league. The injuries they have going into this match will further deplete their attacking arsenal, in particular, Snodgrass' exclusion will hurt Norwich.
Although he has yet to register an assist, he has laid on many chances for his fellow team mates only for them to misfire. His tally of 2.7 key passes is one of the highest in the Premier League and is 1.6 higher than the next highest - Leroy Fer.
Their best bet of a goal is from long shots; Yohann Cabaye, Aaron Ramsey, Romelu Lukaku and Jake Livermore have shown Liverpool are incredibly susceptible to long distance shots. This is not a slight on Simon Mignolet - he has been fantastic in goal - rather it is the result of slack defending. Norwich are terrible at creating chances in the conventional manner, but as Fer and Howson have shown during differing periods, they are a threat from distance.
On the other hand, what Cabaye, Ramsey, Lukaku and Livermore have in common is that they played for teams who pinned Liverpool to the edge of the area for prolonged periods of the match. This ensured the aforementioned players took full advantage of the disarray Liverpool's midfield were under and were able to strike with minimal pressure.
Unfortunately, I just do not see Norwich capable of exerting enough pressure to trouble Liverpool. In addition, the aforementioned all scored against Liverpool in away games; given Liverpool exert more control on matches at home and Norwich allowing teams way too many shots on goal away (screenshot two), I can see Liverpool doing enough to keep them from being about Norwich - even if their attack has been incredibly reduced.
Liverpool 2-0 Norwich City
