Liverpool vs. Norwich City: Winners and Losers from Premier League Game

Liverpool have only scored one first-half league goal this season, Benteke’s strike against Bournemouth, and it is a habit that needs to be broken if they are to improve their patchy form.


“But also on the back of our last performance here, [there was] a little bit of anxiety in the first half“.

Sturridge was a surprise inclusion from the off at Anfield in the Premier League game and clocked up 60 minutes as the Reds played out a 1-1 draw.

It was a tough afternoon for Milner, normally one of the most consistent players you could hope to see, and he followed up his “4” from our writers with a “3.9” from the fans.

“There is a great history but embrace it. You have to play positive football“. We built a real fortress for ourselves, but unfortunately we have to build that again and focus on being positive at home.

Benteke was forced off at the break with a knock, but the change provided the spark Liverpool needed, as Ings latched on to Alberto Moreno’s lofted pass and coolly fired between Ruddy’s legs just two minutes after coming on.

The lead was short-lived, however, with Martin equalising just after the hour after Simon Mignolet unconvincingly punched Jonny Howson’s corner.

After the 9am birth Martin was allowed to travel by air with the club directors and, while manager Alex Neil selected him regardless, the defender conceded that he was late getting back to Liverpool before the contest.

Despite not sleeping a wink during the night, Martin said it never crossed his mind to make himself unavailable for the match.

“I think today was a step forward for us in terms of the creativity back into our game and hopefully we can progress from that”. And he started creating, showing another side to his game.

Philippe Coutinho endured a poor game and he wasted the best chance.

A smattering of boos – no more than that and they were short-lived – could be heard from the stands at the full-time whistle in the 1-1 draw with Norwich.

The Reds looked a quality side at Anfield, but that didn’t produce the desired result as Russell Martin rescued a point for Norwich at Anfield, canceling out a goal from Danny Ings right after halftime.


Soon after, Adam Lallana and Ings combined for the latter to round Ruddy, only to run out of space at the Norwich byline.
