Liverpool will hope a strong record against Norwich City in the Premier League will bring their first top-flight win of the season on Saturday.
Brendan Rodgers has yet to record a domestic three points since moving to Anfield, including last weekend's defeat by Manchester United, and will be desperate to address the struggles.
West Bromwich Albion were beaten at the beginning of Liverpool's League Cup defence in midweek but the Premier League is the priority.
And Rodgers will be pleased to know he has inherited a club record of having won five and lost none of the last six Premier League matches against Norwich.
Liverpool are also unbeaten in their last four visits to Carrow Road, winning the last three in a row, including Luis Suarez's hat-trick in this fixture last season.
Norwich have endured similar struggles in the Premier League and, like Rodgers, Chris Hughton has yet to record a win.
They sit just one place and point above relegation zone occupants Liverpool but Doncaster were defeated in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday and there could be some momentum.Norwich have been counting the cost of their victory over Doncaster with the news Harry Kane could be sidelined for six weeks.
The 19-year-old striker, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, damaged his ankle in the 1-0 win against the League One club.
Kane is also understood to have broken a metatarsal, although the full extent of the injury has not yet been confirmed.Centre-back Daniel Agger has a good chance of being fit for Liverpool despite being carried off on a stretcher last weekend.
The Denmark international sustained bone bruising in the defeat by United but could retain his place in the starting line-up, although forward Fabio Borini (ankle) is rated at 50-50.
Midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is suspended while Martin Kelly's knee operation means there is a decision to make in defence with left-back Jose Enrique still injured.
