Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 12pm BST. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:25pm BST.


Norwich come into this fixture with the cloud of relegation looming over their heads after losing their last three matches on the trot. They lost 1-0 to Fulham in their previous league fixture at the Craven Cottage last weekend.

The Canaries probably have the most difficult run-in towards the end of the season with fixtures against Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal to follow, after Sunday's clash against Liverpool.

Neil Adams' side sit 17th in the league table having garnered 32 points from 34 matches; just two points keeping them away from the relegation spots.

Brendan Rodgers' side are the most in-form team in the league having registered 10 consecutive victories. They earned a massive advantage in the race for the league title by defeating Manchester City at Anfield last Sunday.

The hosts raced into a 2-0 lead by half time courtesy of goals from Raheem Sterling and Martin Skrtel. David Silva helped City draw level in the second half by scoring their first and playing a role in the equaliser.

Philippe Coutinho then took advantage of Vincent Kompany's miskick to make it 3-2 and the Reds held on until the final whistle for all three points.

Liverpool remain on top of the league table with 77 points after playing 34 matches. They were also handed a boost in the title-race after Sunderland beat Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Merseyside club remain two points ahead of second-placed Chelsea who have played 35 matches and are six points clear of third-placed City who have played 33 matches.

Liverpool will be aware that they cannot take Norwich lightly as they are struggling to avoid relegation and a defeat at Carrow Road could deliver a significant blow to their ambitions of finishing first this season.

What Managers Say

Neil Adams: "It's going to be tough, of course it is, but we're confident. We treat every team the same. It speaks for itself their run, and we respect that, but all runs are due to come to an end at some time and why can't it be theirs that comes to an end at Carrow Road on Sunday?"

Brendan Rodgers: "They [Norwich City] know they need to win their game. They're just above the relegation [zone] and they'll see their home games as being vital for them. They're looking to change their [sic] way they're playing. They're looking to open up the field a bit more and have a bit more space to play in. They'll want to show they can win in front of their supporters."
