Midfielder Alex Tettey is confident Liverpool will see a different Norwich City tomorrow from the team they thrashed at Carrow Road in September.

The Norway international made his first Premier League appearance for the Canaries in the 5-2 home defeat against the Reds nearly four months ago.

But his introduction as a substitute for Steve Morison 11 minutes from time, with City already trailing 5-1, gave him little opportunity to make an impression.

Chris Hughton’s team go to Anfield (3pm), weather permitting, in a much better position, despite experiencing a slump that has brought just one point from the past five games, and Tettey expects them to make life much more difficult for Brendan Rodgers’ team this time.

He said: “I remember the game. We made a couple of mistakes, personal mistakes. I hope we are not going to do the same thing again.

“Against a team like Liverpool if you make a mistake they will obviously punish you. If you look at the game they started really well with a high tempo, passing, moving. But they scored two goals because of our poor mistakes.

“The whole team has improved since that game. So we have to go there and show we have improved from that game.”

Tettey added: “We know we have to go there and be solid, otherwise it’s going to be very, very difficult. The manager has a gameplan and the whole team has to try to stick with it and give 100 per cent. If they are better than us, they are better than us.

“If Liverpool go to Barcelona, nobody will expect Liverpool to have the ball 70 per cent of the time. It will be the same with us. We have to go there, be compact and take our chances if we get them.”

Tettey admitted his transition from French to English football had not been easy.

He said: “I have learned that every game is very difficult and every opponent is different. I’m just trying to be better from game to game, trying to improve. People are saying I have settled well and done this or that but it hasn’t been easy.

“During the Christmas games I felt a little bit tired because there were games every three days and they were against opponents who play at a very, very high tempo.”
