Where to watch

Kick-off is set for 4pm BST. Catch the highlights of the match on Match of the Day 2 on BBC Two and BBC Two HD at 10pm BST.


After winning the first two matches of the 2015/16 season, Liverpool have not won their last four games in all competitions. It includes two consecutive league defeats at the hands of West Ham United and Manchester United.

Brendan Rodgers saw his side settle for a 1-1 draw in the Europa League fixture against Bordeaux when the Reds made a trip to France. The Northern Irishman will be hoping the Merseyside club can end their poor run by sealing a victory over Norwich City.

Meanwhile, the Canaries have managed three wins out of their last five matches played in all competitions. They sealed a comfortable 3-1 victory over AFC Bournemouth in the last fixture.

Alex Neil will be hoping his men can seal an upset by defeating Liverpool at Anfield. West Ham managed to beat the Reds and Norwich will be hoping for another upset when they face Rodgers' side.

What managers say

Brendan Rodgers: "It is about risk-taking. I think, for some reason, that wee bit of risk has gone out of our game. We need to ensure we take those risks in order to create in the game and bring that intensity to it. The players have been working really hard at that over the last week or so and it only takes that one performance to spin the season around again."

Alex Neil: "Liverpool are a good side, though. They're well managed, and we're going to have to make sure we put in a good performance. But as some of the other teams have shown this season it's more than achievable to go and give a good account of yourself and hopefully get something from the game."
