A Stevie G lifted Liverpool
Liverpool go into the game against Norwich, expecting nothing less than three points. The Canaries may have started the season well but they are a newly promoted side and they do not have The Red's resources.
The Scousers will be looking to build on their impressive draw against Man United and improved form. Liverpool are 1/3 to win in ninety minutes, the draw is 16/5 and the away win is 12/1.
It is hard to look past a Liverpool side that has been buoyed by the return of Steven Gerrard. He scored a beauty against United last week and the Match Winner is for him to score from outside the box at an enhanced price of 5/1.
With Leiva injured, he is likely to play a deeper role, so he will be having plenty of shots from distance and he is a set-piece expert. He does not always need Giggs jumping out of the way to score goals.
Liverpool very much like Chelsea, look superb going forward. They both have problems in defence, the ageing Carragher and an erratic Skrtel are not the most solid.
Both teams to score is 23/20 and that looks a solid punt, they put three past Norwich in their last league match and they play good attacking football under Lambert.
Two of the goals were scored by Anthony Pilkington, he was signed from the league one club Huddersfield. Norwich were installed as favourites for the drop at the start of the season but they sit in mid-table.
Pilkington is 16/1 to grab the first goal and he is 6/1 to score anytime. He banged in fourteen goals for the Terriers last season. He has scored three goals in seven league games this season and with Vaughan injured, he will definitely start.
Suarez found himself at the centre of a racism storm after being accused by United's Evra of verbally abusing him. He denies the accusations and the FA has started an inquiry. He can put the episode temporarily behind him on Saturday by scoring the first goal at 3/1.
In their penultimate match, Norwich only let in two goals against United. They are a resilient side and although they struggle to keep clean sheets, they have not been taken apart all season. Liverpool may struggle to get all three points and you can back under 2.5 goals at 6/5.
Goals are expected but Liverpool are not the side of old and if Suarez has been affected by the Evra saga, they may struggle to find the net. The Canaries have beaten the Trotters away from home this season and you can get them at 7/1, draw no bet. The double chance, Norwich or the draw is 13/5.
Norwich have conceded more penalties than any other team in the league. You can get 18/5 for a penalty to be awarded and scored, Sir Alex branded Suarez a diver last weekend and there will definitely be no change to his antics.
