Ruddy is a nightmare. 3-0 Chris Hugthon must be so close for the chop now. I did say 3-0 but it's only half time :(" I think it would be harsh to sack Hughton, the quality of the goals have been excellent.

Fancy a bet? Sky Bet now go 1/5000 for a Liverpool win, 100/1 for the draw and 500/1 for Norwich to come back and win.

Liverpool get the game underway.

Nez says: "Liverpool have no choice but to win this one. I am surprised Sterling made the first team especially after his poor outing in the hull city game. I am going for a Safe 2-I Win for liverpool." Cheers Nez, I'm glad he's giving Sterling another go, he's a young lad and needs games!!

Andrew says: "Won't be an easy game tonight away at Liverpool but think we will have enough to get a point maybe all 3! Come on yellows!" That's the spirit Andrew!

The teams are about to come out onto the pitch - not long to go now!!

Fraser says: "Honestly, Liverpool have been very poor in their most recent games, I don't know what it is, but that confidence they were showing at the start of the season seems to have gone. Something must be happening in the background, but as a Liverpool fan I don't like it. I completely trust Brendan Rodgers and I would say he's the second best manager in the league, judging by his record and ability to turn Liverpool from an extremely poor club to genuine top four contenders this season, but with the players, such average players of the likes of Henderson and Moses. I can't see liverpool winning tonight, neither can I for the canaries, I'll say 1-1 based on recent form, Liverpool need to up their game if they want champions league football, and if they want Luis Suarez to remain at the club." Interesting you have gone for a draw Fraser, I think the first goal will be crucial, get that and Liverpool will push on!!

FIRST VIEW - Tom says: "Good evening! Big Liverpool fan here! hoping Suarez will bring his shooting boots tonight and continue his good form against Norwich! Not happy with Allen in instead of Lucas! Allen always seems to face his own goal when he has the ball! needs to pass forward much more! glad BR is giving Sterling a second chance! just needs to prove him self not! could be a world beater but only if he puts the effort in! Overall a 4-0 win to Liverpool!" Cheers Tom, enjoy the game!

MY VIEW - I reckon Liverpool will get their title push back on track tonight with a 3-0 win, which pays a handsome 13/2 with Sky Bet. What are your views / predictions? Send them to steve.pass2@bskyb.com
