Liverpool will be hoping to recover from the surprise 1-3 defeat to Hull City on Sunday when we host Chris Hughton’s Norwich City on Wednesday evening; 7.45pm kick off UK time. The Reds slipped down to fourth place following the disappointing defeat against Steve Bruce’s side, but with two consecutive home games coming up we should take some solace from our excellent home form this season.

Norwich City moved up to 14th place following their 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Carrow Road at the weekend. The Canaries have struggled away from home this season, picking up three points from a possible 18. Three of their four league wins were on home soil (1-0 against Southampton, 3-1 against West Ham and 1-0 against Crystal Palace), while their solitary away victory came against Stoke City (1-0) at the end of September.

Only Sunderland (two points from a possible 21) and Crystal Palace (three points from a possible 21) have a worse record on their travels this season, while the Canaries’ goal difference of -13 is the worst in the division. Norwich’s tally of three away goals scored is the second worst in the league while nobody has conceded more than their total of 16 goals away from home to date.
