Just about the only thing powerful enough to draw the footballing world's attention away from the transfer rumor mill at this time of year is actual football, and on the back of one of the juiciest rumor mongering weeks this side of Yehven Konoplyanka, Liverpool have a fixture against the Canaries of Norwich City.
It's been awhile since the mention of Norwich got Liverpudlian mouths to salivating--what with Luis Suarez gone and all--but this should still be the sort of fixture that Jürgen Klopp's men can make quick work of. There's no reason for every one of Liverpool's starters not to be winning their individual battles today, and even less so for the collective to falter. Then again, sometimes all the reason in the world isn't enough to upset a rhyme.
