Kenny Dalglish's side needs a win as it falls behind the top six, while Paul Lambert’s Canaries could go level on points with their opponents with a victory.

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

NORWICH CITY

Surman, Howson, Hoolahan, E Bennett
Holt, Wilbraham
LIVERPOOL

Reina
Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique
Bellamy, Spearing, Gerrard, Downing
Carroll, Suarez
Neither side competing on Saturday evening has too much to worry about in the injury department. Liverpool remains without Lucas (knee) who will not return until preseason. Charlie Adam (knee) will also miss the final stretch of the club’s 2011-12 campaign.

Paul Lambert’s side have a few absent players: Marc Tierney (groin) misses the final three games having undergone surgery.

Former Red Daniel Ayala (hamstring) has been out of action since February and another Anfield academy graduate Zak Whitbread may return to the team after recovering from a calf problem.

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Liverpool has only won once in its last 11 league matches - a 3-2 triumph at Blackburn Rovers earlier in April.
  • Norwich City has not had things its own way lately either. The East Anglia club has only come away with three points twice in its last 10 games.
  • Grant Holt (pictured right), has been a storming success this season, scoring 15 goals. The former Rochdale man has netted five in his last 10 outings.
  • The Reds have scored seven goals less than their newly promoted counterparts in this Premier League campaign.
  • However, the Reds' defense has been a plus point for Kenny Dalglish. The Merseyside team has conceded just 37 times in 34 matches heading into their tie with Norwich, which has conceded 60 in 35 clashes.
  • The Carrow Road club will go level on points with Liverpool should it win on Saturday (albeit it will have played a game more).
  • If Andy Carroll starts this weekend it will be the first time he has been in the starting line-up in four consecutive competitive matches this season.
  • With the Canaries and Swansea City seemingly safe for another year in the top flight, but QPR battling the drop, it could be the fourth successive year that just one promoted side has gone back down to the Championship at the first attempt.
