Norwich vs Liverpool Match preview
Norwich is fighting hard to avoid relegation to the Championship this season as they are seven points from crossing the relegation batch as the table stands for now.

Norwich vs Liverpool Prediction
With their league dominance this season, Liverpool has been invincible in the campaign. On account of their unbeaten run in the league after 25 appearances, they are very far from losing the streak to a relegation prone side, Norwich.
Furthermore, Gurgen Klopp will likely get the services of Sadio Mane as the forward has almost recovered from his injury. With Mohammed Salah in lightning form, Liverpool will probably slot in a few goals in ninety minutes.
Teemu Pukki has been struggling to find the back of the net recently for the Canaries. As such, Norwich is more likely not to score in the match and if they do manage to find, it won’t be enough.
To top it off, three of their recent four h2h clashes; as the host, with Liverpool has seen the Reds winning with at least a two-goal margin in the end.
Hence, the punters can go with Liverpool to win the match probably with a -1 handicap at least.
