David vs. Goliath – rarely has this term been as accurate in a league game as it was this weekend. For the 13th time in a row, two teams face off in the Premier League early Saturday night, separated by 53 or more points. For the first time, such a game will take place in February. We’re talking about the duel between Norwich and Liverpool, the dominant leaders.
Liverpool continues the record chase at the bottom! Read our full Norwich vs Liverpool Betting Prediction & odds – Premier League provided by PicksSoccer Tipsters!
The Premier League climber with German head coach Daniel Farke remained true to his own philosophy despite the precarious situation and made no panic purchases on the transfer market. The possible – or quite probable – descent does not ring the alarm bells. A look at the betting base table service shows that the gap to the saving bank is already six points.
How different the performance of the two teams is is shown not only by the fact that there was a difference of 53 points, but also that Liverpool had the same number of points in the 2020 calendar year as Norwich had throughout the season. Hardly anyone doubts in the duel between Norwich and Liverpool about the successful tip on the Reds. In this respect, the betting odds are only around 1.30.
Norwich – Statistics & current form
At the beginning of the season, the canaries still delighted with pleasant offensive football. The way forward was always sought, but the defensive was often neglected. To date, Norwich has not been able to deal with the problems on the defensive. With a total of 47 goals conceded in 25 games, the Farke team has the worst defense in the league.
In the meantime, the pleasant offensive game has also been lost. Along with Newcastle United and Watford FC, Norwich has the league’s second weakest offensive. Only the Super Eagles of Crystal Palace scored fewer goals with 23 goals than this trio (24 goals).
A little bit of hope for the Farke-Elf is the fact that the front-runner is received at Carrow Road at home. Norwich collected twelve of the 18 season counters in front of its own audience. Abroad, the canaries with a 1-3-9 record and only six goals scored are welcome guests.
“We know that it would be a mammoth task and would be a little miracle if we managed to stay in the class. In football you also try to achieve unrealistic things. We work focused and with absolute conviction to get it done. ” – Daniel Farke
Of the last twelve games that Norwich City played against the respective leaders, there was only one win – Manchester United was defeated in November 2012 – the eleven remaining games were lost. A victory sounds like utopia, a draw would be a big surprise. In our betting base odds comparison you can see that between Norwich and Liverpool the prediction for the double chance 1X attracts almost four times the bet.
Despite the precarious situation, coach Daniel Farke has not yet lost faith in relegation. He also attests to his team’s qualities to hurt a top team. However, he also left no doubt at the press conference that the Reds are currently the best team in the world. But there are always surprises – even on Saturday?
Probable lineup of Norwich:
↳ Krul – Byram, Hanley, Zimmermann, Aarons – Tettey, McLean – Cantwell, Duda, Rupp – Pukki
Last games from Norwich:
⚽️ 02/01/2020 – Newcastle vs. Norwich City 0-0 (Premier League)

⚽️ 01/22/2020 – Tottenham vs. Norwich City 2-1 (Premier League)

Liverpool – Statistics & current form
Slowly but surely you run out of superlatives for the season of Jürgen Klopp and his Liverpool FC. At the press conference, Norwich coach Daniel Farke aptly summed up the fact that it was absolutely exceptional for a team at this level to celebrate 24 wins in 25 games and draw only once.
In the meantime, the Klopp team have not only been without defeat for 42 Premier League games, but also celebrated 16 wins in a row. In the last ten games, the reigning Champions League winner has even conceded nine goals. On average, Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker only has to reach behind every 244 minutes.
Impressive statistics are plentiful for Liverpool this season. Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino should be mentioned in relation to individual players. “Mo” Salah has achieved 24 game winning goals since arriving in Liverpool, at least six more than any other player in the world’s strongest league. In this season alone, he scored seven of these goals.
Since there are no lucrative odds on the three-way market between Norwich and Liverpool, you have to look at alternative betting markets anyway. We recommend the prediction that Roberto Firmino can be included in the goalscorer list. “Bobby” has scored eight goals so far this season, but he hasn’t been able to cheer on Anfield Road yet. All the gates were in a strange place.
Given 73 out of 75 points, the Manchester City record is shaking. The Reds will no longer be able to take the championship away, but there is no lack of motivation. Both the point record of the Citizens and a season without a league defeat are Klopp & Co.’s big goals in the last 13 league games.
Probable lineup of Liverpool:
↳ Alisson Becker – Robertson, Matip, van Dijk, Alexander-Arnold – Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson – Mane, Roberto Firmino, Salah
Last Liverpool games:
⚽️ 02/04/2020 – Liverpool vs. Shrewsbury Town 1-0 (FA Cup)
⚽️ 02/01/2020 – Liverpool vs. Southampton 4-0 (Premier League)
⚽️ 01/29/2020 – West Ham vs. Liverpool 0-2 (Premier League)
⚽️ 01/26/2020 – Shrewsbury Town vs. Liverpool 2-2 (FA Cup)
⚽️ 01/23/2020 – Wolverhampton vs. Liverpool 1: 2 (Premier League)
