Liverpool face Norwich City on Saturday evening (5:30pm kick off), for their first trip to Carrow Road since January 2005.
The Reds, then managed by Rafa Benitez, saw off the Canaries 2-1 courtesy of second half goals from Luis Garcia and John Arne Riise. Ryan Jarvis hit a consolation for the home side late on.
The Telegraph match report from the game read “If performing poorly and winning is a measure of successful football teams, Liverpool played like champions at Carrow Road to record their third victory of the holiday programme. A touch of class followed by a moment of madness in the space of five second-half minutes was all that separated them from a troubled Norwich side who are starting to take on the look of brave losers”.
Quite the opposite to the current season – where the Reds are performing well but failing to to win.
LFC line-up: Dudek, Finnan, Hyypia, Carragher, Warnock, Nunez, Diao, Gerrard, Riise, Garcia, Mellor.
Subs: Harrison, Traore, Raven, Hamann, Pongolle.
