Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool take on Norwich this weekend

Liverpool have 73 points from a possible 75 – the best ever tally at this stage of a league season any team have ever had in Europe’s big five domestic leagues.

The Anfield club look set to break the record for the largest title-winning margin of 19 points set by Manchester City in 2017/18. Klopp’s men are already 22 points ahead of City with 13 games to go and, with the reigning champions not playing this weekend, can go 25 points clear with a win at Norwich.

And they are on the hunt for record of the most wins in a single season to, which is also held by City, who won 32 matches in 2017/18 and 2018/19.

But Klopp and his players will tell you that they are only focusing on each game as it comes and the clash at Carrow Road is the only thing on their agenda.

So how should they line up for this match? talkSPORT.com has identified who we deserves their place in the XI…

Alisson Becker will resume his natural position in goal for the European champions after he was rested in the 1-0 win over Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup.

The backline will be led by the imperious Virgil van Dijk, who will be hoping to continue his rock solid defensive partnership with Joe Gomez.

The pair will have to handle the Canaries’ top scorer Teemu Pukki, who netted against Liverpool in the opening match of the campaign at Anfield.

In the full-back slots, Trent Alexander-Arnold will be hoping he continues his brilliant campaign on the right, while Andrew Robertson will operate on the other side as the left-back.

The duo are arguably the best pair of full-backs in recent Premier League memory and Klopp should instruct them to press high up the pitch so that they can win the ball back quickly and create some decent openings for the front players on the break.

Klopp will be inclined to continue with Georginio Wijnaldum, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson in midfield, who started and thrived in the 4-0 victory over Southampton earlier this month.

However, if the eccentric German manager was to be bold, he could hand January arrival Takumi Minamino a start in the middle of the park, while James Milner is also back fit and in contention.

Both Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain managed to get their names on the scoresheet versus the Saints but the latter is likely to drop out the XI due to Sadio Mane’s comeback from injury.

Mane has been out with a hamstring problem but he is simply too good to leave out, and he and Mohamed Salah will look to stretch the Norwich defenders out on the flanks while Roberto Firmino spearheads the Liverpool attack up top.

Egyptian forward Salah, who has enjoyed a rich vein of form in recent weeks, will be hopeful of continuing his push for a third successive Golden Boot.
