The Canaries sit just above the relegation zone going into Saturday’s lunchtime encounter against Liverpool although there are reasons to suggest Alex Neil’s team will get something from this clash.

Norwich’s chief problem is their away form, with eight defeats being suffered in twelve matches and that puts pressure on what happens at Carrow Road, where City have won four, drawn three and lost three.

They might have recently lost 3-0 at home to Manchester City in the FA Cup, although previous encounters at Carrow Road have seen Norwich beat Southampton and Aston Villa. Previously to this, there were draws against Arsenal and Everton so this is a tough assignment for Liverpool.

The visitors fielded a weak team for the Wednesday FA Cup clash against Exeter, with Jurgen Klopp focusing on bouncing back from Sunday’s reverse against Manchester United although they hardly look like banker material here.

Liverpool have won four of their eleven matches on the road, although West Ham, Watford and Newcastle have all accounted for the Merseyside team recently.

There continues to be injury problems, with Lovren and Skrtel missing at the back, while Philippe Coutinho is clearly a big miss and there appears to be no end in sight when it comes to Daniel Sturridge’s injury woes.

Therefore, we’re going for a draw to kick off Premier League proceedings this weekend, with Norwich likely to be content enough with a point but don’t be surprised if they manage all three.
