NOR Vs LIV Dream 11 Prediction: Norwich City Vs Liverpool. Complete mismatch as first and last place square off against each other in a foregone conclusion.
When these two sides had met each other on the opening day of the Premier League, little was it known that the result from that fixture would determine how either side’s shaped up. The 4-1 result in favour of Liverpool on that day has carried forward with Liverpool thriving akin to that tie to sit atop of the league standings while Norwich City have suffered similar appalling results to find themselves in bottom spot.
While their previous fixture against Liverpool this season was only Norwich City’s first fixture in the league after being promoted into it, the clash was vindictive of the predicament the side needed to address. They were all over the place defensively in that one and it was clear that if they failed to wrench out of their ordeal in the backline, this would end up being a long season for them.
And that narrative has played true with the side’s languishing defence being the main reason for their downward spiral. They have won a mere 4 out of 25 matches to sit firmly hammered in bottom spot with relegation looming closer with each passing tie for them.
Where Norwich City are scraping their way in a muddy relegation battle, Liverpool are cruising their way towards the title. They are holding a runaway lead atop of the points tally with 24 wins from 25 and are all set to make it 25 come today’s fixture with an emphatic result in their kitty.

Dream 11 Picks
Forming the meanest and strictest defence in the league with just the 15 goals let past them, Liverpool all coming into today’s encounter with 9 cleansheets in their last 10 matches. And they have had Alisson Becker to thank for that dominance with the goal-keeper pulling off a stellar display against Liverpool the last time around to make him our choice for the contest.
With 12 assists in his artillery this season, we’ll be beginning our set of selections with Trent Alexander-Arnold from Liverpool for the affair. Joe Gomez comes in as well given Liverpool’s exemplary backline, one we envision pulling off a cleansheet in this encounter.
Elsewhere, while Norwich City are set to be embarrassed as they come across a lethal Liverpool attacking unit, we are still going in for a duo of picks from the home side. At a mere combined price tag of 16 credits, not only do Ben Godfrey and Maximillian Aarons help free up funds to invest in elsewhere but are set to imbed in place a slew of tackles and blocks on the day.
The midseason couldn’t have come at a better time for Liverpool with Sadio Mane being accorded ample time to recover from his injury. And he looks to have shaken off his plight after being featured in the side’s practice sessions ahead of the clash to see us bring in the 11 goal and 6 assist man for this fixture.
Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has now scored in two successive ties for Liverpool to see us move in for him as well while from the other side of the slot we are getting in an akin duo. In Kenny McClean and Alexander Tettey, we have two watchdogs of the side’s midfield, players who se tenacity will come to the fore as they look to curb Liverpool’s attacking plays.
Liverpool’s leading scorer with the 14 goals and 6 assists, Mohamed Salah becomes the first name to be indulged in by us for the day’s fixture over here. Roberto Firmino comes in as well with the striker having hit all his 8 goals in away encounters, a rhetoric which made him a must have pick.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Given his recent touch and Norwich City’s defence, Salah will be our captain with Firmino coming in as the vice-captain.
