Liverpool go into this fixture in great home form having won four of their last five home fixtures in the Premier League.

Norwich have the fourth worst away record so far this season, collecting eight points from a possible 33. Their single win on the road this season came in the form of a 4-3 victory over Swansea on the 8th December.

Luis Suarez is on course for a hat-trick of hat-tricks, as he has scored three goals in each of his last two appearances against the Canaries.


KICK-OFF: Saturday 3.00PM



Norwich 2 (Morrison, Holt) Liverpool 5 (Suarez 3, Sahin, Barnett OG), Premier League, September 2012

If Suarez manages to score another hat-trick against Norwich it will be the first time a player has scored three against a team in consecutive games.

If Daniel Sturridge scores, he will be the first player since Ray Kennedy in 1974 to score in his first three Liverpool appearances.

In the last seven fixtures between the two, a Liverpool player has opened the scoring.

Norwich has kept one away clean sheet all season. (Reading)
