Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson does not expect Norwich to cause the Reds too many problems when Jurgen Klopp’s side travel to Carrow Road this evening.
Manchester City lost to the Canaries away from home earlier this season, but Lawrenson thinks the Premier League leaders will have too much for their opponents tonight:
“While Manchester City were undone at Carrow Road in September when Norwich went at them, I just don’t see the Canaries causing Liverpool the same sort of problems. Liverpool’s first-team players will be refreshed after their break and I think they will pick up where they left off – with another win.”
Lawrenson has gone for a 2-0 victory, which is a pretty conservative prediction from the BBC pundit considering Norwich have conceded 25 goals in their 12 home games so far this campaign.
Daniel Farke’s men will no doubt cause Liverpool problems, with the German unlikely to alter his team’s expansive playing style. It should be a very open, free-flowing game with a number of chances.
However, with the Reds having an excellent defensive record, particularly away from Anfield where they have let in just six goals all season, you would expect Klopp’s men to come out on top if it turns into an end-to-end contest.
