Norwich v Liverpool: Rodgers to savour first success

| 28.09.2012

Luis Suarez has fond memories of Carrow Road and he can spearhead Liverpool’s first Premier League triumph of the season at Norwich.

Suarez bagged a hat-trick, including a lob from the half-way line, in the 3-0 success at Norwich last season and is 25/1 to replicate this feat.

This is unlikely, but 6/4 is a worthy price for the wincast that Suarez scores at any time in the 90 minutes and Liverpool win.

Alternatively, Suarez is 4/1 to help himself to the opener and 1/1 just to score in the game.

Liverpool have won on their last three visits to Carrow Road and are 5/6 to extend this victorious sequence, but Brendan Rodgers struggled against them last season.

Norwich did the double over Rodgers’ Swansea and can be backed at 10/3 to get the better of him again, although they now also have a different manager in Chris Hughton.

The draw is available at 10/3 and has been the result in both of Norwich’s home games thus far.

Since their 5-0 opening-day drubbing at Fulham, Norwich have kept things much tighter, conceding no more than once in a game, while none of these four meetings have witnessed more than two goals being scored.

It is 10/11 that under 2.5 goals are scored again, with Liverpool 5/6 to score 0-1 goals, as they have in four of their five Premier League fixtures so far.

To be fair to Liverpool, they may still be seeking a first win and down in 18th in the standings, but they have not had the easiest start to the campaign.

Norwich represents the start of a winnable run of three fixtures for Liverpool with home encounters with Stoke and Reading on the horizon.
