Liverpool were hugely disappointing as they slumped to a 3-1 defeat at Manchester United and as that result came on the back of the 3-0 home reverse against West Ham, the pressure is increasing on Brendan Rodgers. Indeed, the Reds boss has been well backed to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post (6/4, Paddy Power) while his Liverpool team have drifted out to 13/5 at Ladbrokes to finish in the top four.
It goes without saying then, that the Reds can ill afford to drop points as they host Norwich but bookies expect Rodgers’s men to get back on track, BetVictor chalking them up at 3/5 to send the Canaries home empty-handed.
On home soil Liverpool should enjoy the upper hand and punters in agreement can back the Reds at 11/4 (Stan James) to shade it by a one-goal margin. Alternatively, bet365 quote 8/1 about Rodgers’s side prevailing 2-1 and Skybet go 6/4 about them leading at the end of each half.
Liverpool to beat Norwich 2-1 – 8/1 (bet365)
