Liverpool travel to Norwich tomorrow to take on the Canaries in a match that Liverpool direly need to win to keep up in the table with Everton and the others. After the lose to West Bromwich Albion, Liverpool are going to need to learn to finish after completely dominating the match and doing what seemed impossible, not finishing any of their chances. Hopefully Kenny Dalglish can come out with a plan to stifle these birds.
Who will start for Liverpool?
Reina in net, that’s for sure. Martin Skrtel and Jose Enrique should be automatically in the squad, along with Glen Johnson. Hopefully Daniel Agger can partner Skrtel for what has made one of the most formidable defenses in the league this season.
The midfield will be a tough choice. If Steven Gerrard is back after his precautionary sit against West Brom, then he will start probably partnered with Jay Spearing. Jordan Henderson is also a possibility. Whichever they chose has to be able to hold possession and not stick Henderson out right.
The attack will include Luis Suarez. Beyond that is questionable. I can see Stewart Downing being stuck as an inside forward along with Craig Bellamy. Andy Carroll’s form recently has warranted a start also, so look out for that. Dirk Kuyt is also a possibility.
How can Liverpool win?
Continue to control the match. They have been really good at holding possession and creating chances. They need to continue on this path.
But then again, what’s the point of creating chances if you never take them? Liverpool hold tons of chances created this year, but hold minimal goals for their work. At this point it’s become comical. Of all the missed chances, 30 have hit the woodwork.
At this point of the year, the team should be gelled together, but we still have to see Downing make the sort of impact he’s capable of making, same with Charlie Adam who now misses the rest of the year with an injury.
