Michael Turner believes Norwich City owe Liverpool a contest when they travel to Anfield this weekend.

While last season’s trip brought an excellent 1-1 draw, City have found the Reds untouchable in the two games since at Carrow Road.

Their defeat earlier this season had the most profound effect, City’s 5-2 loss and abject performance providing the low point of their season so far.

And while few from Chris Hughton’s squad shone on that September afternoon, arguably it was Turner who bore the brunt of the fans’ frustrations. Fast forward almost four months and both City and Turner have recovered a lot of favour.

“Yes it was a bit of a watershed,” admitted Turner. “It was a shocking start in that game, conceding so early. Then we were on the back foot for most of the first half and in the second we capitulated a little bit.

“So it was a massive disappointment for everyone and after that game we dusted ourselves down, had a look at what we wanted to do and what we wanted to achieve. We’ve done well from there and for me personally and the team, we will be looking to put in a performance there to hopefully get one back on them a little bit.

“It’s going to be a tough one and they have got some great players, but it’s one we can look forward to.

“Everyone looks forward to playing at Anfield, so we have to prepare right this week and hopefully we can put in a good performance and get something from that game.”

While Saturday’s goalless draw with Newcastle has probably already left the memories of most, two positives linger – Grant Holt’s return to action following a pre-Christmas hamstring injury and Mark Bunn’s first full Premier League clean sheet since putting on John Ruddy’s gloves.

“Everyone here knows what Grant offers; he puts in a great shift every time he gets on the pitch, and it’s great for us he came off the bench on Saturday and hopefully with another week’s training he will be ready to go at Liverpool,” added Turner.

“Bunny has played since John has been out injured and he has done a good job, played in a lot of the games when we were on that winning run and a clean sheet is something he will be pleased with.”

  • We must remember that, according to that shrinking violet Brendan Rogers, Liverpool are only a smidgeon away from being as good as MUFC. That`s why there are `only` 24 points between them just now! Then, we did beat the Fergieboys this season......... We`ll need a really top performance to get anything at Anfield. Go on, fellows!!

  • A point would be good and the way Liverpool blow hot and cold at present we could stand a good chance - for me Sturridge will be the bigger threat he seems to be getting on a roll. This is one we need Holt for no question on that. OTBC

  • If we get a point I'll be pleased. Liverpool are growing in strength and Sturridge will be hard to contain (not to mention Suarez)!

  • ...Or we could always rest Snodgrass, he is a bit shirt of end result at the momento, and reform the others to see how they would cope.
