Confirmed: Liverpool and Norwich City line-ups

Giant Anfield Flag

Here is how Liverpool and Norwich City will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Liverpool welcome Norwich City to Anfield this weekend as the Reds look to get back to winning ways after back-to-back league defeats against West Ham United and Manchester United either side of the international break.

Brendan Rodgers’ side drew 1-1 with French club Bordeaux in the Europa League on Thursday but it is about time this side tasted victory once more.

That will be easier said than done against a Norwich team that has impressed since their return to the top flight, picking up seven points from their first five matches.

Liverpool are two places below the Canaries on goal-difference as things stand but things could all change by 6:00pm this evening.

Liverpool have a superb recent record against Norwich, scoring 21 goals in their last five Premier League meetings, but with the prospect of suffering three straight league defeats for the first time since November 2014 the Reds will head into this match knowing they cannot take a victory for granted.
