Likely Liverpool Starting XI To Face Norwich: Youngster To Start?

Liverpool players celebrating Coutinho's goal

Liverpool had to face a defeat at the hands of their old rivals, Manchester United, last week, even though they dominated for the majority of the match. They will look to get their top four push back on track when they take on Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon. The Reds faced Exeter in the mid-week replay of FA Cup third round fixture. The young guns stepped up in the absence of many senior stars and secured a 3-0 win. Klopp will be expected to keep faith in the team which lost to United last week, which would mean Benteke might have to settle for a place on the bench.

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet

Mignolet was one of the few senior players who started for Liverpool against Exeter on Wednesday. The Belgian had a very quite game, with hardly a save to make and is expected to maintain his place between the sticks, even though he has come under a lot of criticism from the fans of late. With Norwich not scoring too many goals recently Mignolet will be hopeful of keeping a Premier League clean sheet for the first time in four games.

Defenders: Nathaniel Clyne, Kolo Toure, Mamadou Sakho and Alberto Moreno

Klopp is set to make numerous changes to his line-up and recall Nathaniel Clyne, Alberto Moreno and Mamadou Sakho after resting for them against Exeter. The centre back pairing of Toure and Sakho will be expected to continue in the absence of Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren. The duo were pretty impressive against Manchester United except for the corner that lead to Wayne Rooney’s winner. Both Clyne and Moreno did well against United on the wings on Sunday and remain clubs first choice full backs. Jon Flanagan returned from a 18-month injury lay-off against Exeter in the FA Cup in mid-week but he isn’t expected to be risked.
