Premier League Norwich vs Liverpool 8/14/2021 Prediction and Match Preview

Liverpool’s season was pretty much destroyed by injuries, especially to their defensive line, but they still managed to have a decent season. They are now healthy and with little changes to their roster, and they will try to wash off an unsuccessful season when they will be hosted by Championship winners Norwich on Saturday.

Norwich were excellent in the Championship last season, capturing the title with 29 wins,, 7 losses and 10 draws, scoring 75 goals (which was the 2nd best offense in the league) and conceding just 36 in the process ( which was the 2nd best defense). Norwich were the best away team in the Championship last season with 15 wins, 4 losses and 4 draws. Moreover, they had the 2nd best home record with 14 wins, 3 losses and 6 draws. Finnish striker Teemu Pukki led the scoring with 26 goals and also had 4 assists, while Emiliano Buendia scored 16 goals and had 16 assists, but he was sold to Aston Villa. Norwich did not saw many goals at home last season, with just 9 of their 23 home matches producing Over 2.5 Goals, and an average of 2.3 goals per home match.

Liverpool were doing OK last season but then disaster befell upon them, when their best defender, Virgil van Dijk was injured for the rest of the season. It was a huge blow for Liverpool, who also had a lot of other defenders unavailable from time to time. They never really got it going after their backline was depleted, but they did manage to finish at the 3rd spot of the league table with 20 wins, 9 losses and 9 draws. Liverpool weren’t anything special the road, even though they lost just 3 matches, finishing with the 5th best away record in the Premier League (10 wins, 3 losses, 6 draws) Their squad is almost identical to last season, but with a few exceptions. Ibrahima Konate was signed from RB Leipzig, while Wijnaldum was sent to PSG.
