You can't Holt this lad
Liverpool take on Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday evening. Norwich have excelled under Lambert this season and the prospect of relegation has never looked like reality. Liverpool have been really poor of late but they could still win a domestic cup double.
They are the holders of the Carling Cup and they face Chelsea in the FA Cup final. There is little difference between the two sides this season, it will be tough for Liverpool to stop Paul Lambert's yellow and green army at Carrow Road.
Norwich are 13/5 to win at home, the draw is 5/2 and the away win is even money. Liverpool have won only three of their last fifteen league matches and they have lost nine in that run. You can back Norwich draw no bet at 13/8 and if you fancy the Canaries to win or draw, they are 4/5.
I would avoid punting on the ninety minutes market as neither club have anything to play for in the league. The Norwich players will be looking towards their well deserved summer holidays and Kenny Dalglish may rest players as Liverpool have a cup final the following week.
Liverpool were beaten 1-0 by West Brom last week and Norwich to win by the same score line is 11/1. The Reds have converted just nine percent of shots into goals, a lower proportion than any other team in the league.
You can back Norwich only to score at 11/2 and the Canaries are 10/3 to keep a clean sheet. Suarez has struggled with form in the second half of the season and Carroll has failed to provide enough goals. Bellamy looks their most astute signing and he came back to the club for nothing, he is 13/2 to open the scoring and 15/8 anytime scorer.
Norwich have scored the joint-most headed goals in the Premier League this season. In the reverse fixture, Holt came off the bench to capitalise on a Reina mistake to crash a header into an empty net to make it 1-1. For the Match Winner, we have enhanced the price of any headed goal scored from 3/1 to 4/1!
Liverpool signed Andy Carroll for a hefty £35 million transfer fee from Newcastle and he may have scored the 86th-minute winner that sent Liverpool into the FA Cup final but he has missed some absolute sitters. He is 11/2 to open the scoring and 6/4 anytime scorer.
Grant Holt has impressed at Norwich, he does not look like a Premier League player and he is not technically the best but he looks a decent price at 15/8 to find the net anytime. He is fantastic in the air and he could cause carnage amongst a poor Liverpool defence.
