Liverpool might be favourites to bounce back against Norwich after their defeat to Manchester United last weekend, but the form of the Canaries and a few key issues for Liverpool should make this a closer encounter than the bookies anticipate.

According to multiple sources Liverpool have all but wrapped up deals for Daniel Sturridge and Tom Ince. That's in stark contrast to the Summer transfer window where the club left their work until the last minute and then for some strange reason packed up early, leaving Liverpool with just one proven striker.

You won't find a Liverpool fan who didn't find Saturday's 3-1 home loss to Aston Villa humiliating. It was a devastating loss, particularly after Liverpool had picked up three successive victories in all competitions. This was supposed to be another solid home victory as Rodgers marched his team up the table but clearly Paul Lambert and his Villa side didn't read the script.

If you believe the media reports a deal for Daniel Sturridge is all but done and the Chelsea forward will be a Liverpool player come January. However, his £12 million price tag isn't exactly great value for money for a player who can't break into the first team at his own club.

Liverpool can win despite poor refereeing

It was hardly a surprise to see a soft penalty given against the Reds this season. It's happened so many times before that you knew it was coming. It was even less surprising that Jonjo Messi wasn't awarded a stone wall penalty after a mazing run into the box that would have sealed it.

Despite Liverpool's usual frailties in front of goal against a Southampton side that has conceded the most goals in the Premier league this season there can be no doubt there was an improvement in Liverpool's overall player on Saturday. A large part of that can be put down to the return of Lucas Leiva, who after months of injuries came in to make this Liverpool side more solid at the back and more adventurous going forward.

Liverpool weren't awful against Tottenham but they were nowhere near where they need to be at this point in the season. Poor defensive errors in the opening 16 minutes, combined with the form of Gareth Bale and an inability to capitalise were among the main reasons for Liverpool's loss but there are other areas where the Reds can still improve.

After a horrendous opening 16 minutes in which Liverpool conceded two completely avoidable goals they were mostly the better side for the remainder of the match against a Tottenham side who were largely poor outside of Bale and Kyle Walker at the back.

If there was one thing that would have frustrated Brendan Rodgers in an otherwise decent performance against Swansea it was the showing of Stewart Downing at left back.
