It's inevitable, Liverpool's Luis Suarez will get on the scoresheet against Norwich City in their Premier League match on Sunday.

The Canaries are the Uruguayan's favourite opponents - he has scored 11 goals in his five league matches against the struggling club, four more than he has netted against any other team.

After his four strikes when the teams last met in Liverpool's 5-1 win at Anfield in December, Suarez became the first player ever to score three hat-tricks against the same club in Premier League history

He also scored trebles against Norwich in the 5-2 triumph at Carrow Road in September 2012 and also in the 3-0 victory at the ground the previous season.

At Carrow Road alone, Suarez has scored six goals in the division - more than any other visiting player, averaging a goal every 29 minutes at the east Anglia ground.


With 29 goals in the league this season, Suarez needs six more to surpass the Premier League record of most goals scored in a season - the total  of 34 set by Alan Shearer for Blackburn in 1994/95 and Andy Cole for Newcastle in 1993/94.
