Liverpool are expected to take another step towards clinching a long-awaited Premier League title when they take on the bottom-of-the-table Norwich. The battle for Champions League places takes centre stage this weekend and Norwich City will try it’s best to stop Liverpool from remaining undefeated.

The Reds can extend their mammoth 22-point lead over Manchester City at Carrow Road on Saturday as they aim to not only win the league for the first time in 30 years but smash the record books in the process.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have dropped just two points all season and are on a run of 16 consecutive league wins.

That march towards the title began on the opening night of the season when Norwich visited Anfield and were 4-0 down inside 42 minutes.

An injury to Alisson Becker was the one big concern of that victory for Klopp as the Brazilian was sidelined for two months.

After taking some time to get back to his best form, Alisson has saved 26 of the last 27 shots he has faced, with Liverpool racking up an aggregate score of 23-1 in that time.

“We want to win the title and for winning the title, you need to win everything,” Alisson told Premier League Productions.

“The way we play, you need to enjoy that because if you don’t enjoy that then you cannot play all the games with our intensity.”

A massive 55 points separate Norwich from the champions-elect with the Canaries seven points adrift of safety.

Daniel Farke’s men desperately need to start turning good performances into points to beat the drop.

However, they have shown an ability to upset the odds with one of their four league wins this season coming against Manchester City.

The German coach also want his wantshis side to make the most of their “free shot” against the Reds to kickstart their survival battle.

“There is always hope. Everything can happen in one game,” the German said.

“In 20 games, Liverpool will probably win the most, but our game against Man City showed that when we are good at our topics, we can beat them.

“Liverpool are on fire and the best team in the world. We need an outstanding performance and spirit to have a chance – but if we are (outstanding), then we do (have a chance).”

He added: “It’s like a free shot tomorrow because we have to deliver in the following 11 games.

“It would be great to get one or three points tomorrow but we also want to enjoy it.”
