It may only be December but the Reds’ lead at the top of the table appears to be unassailable.
They are 10 points clear of second-placed Leicester after a day in which results went their way.
In the early kick-off, Jurgen Klopp’s side defeated Watford 2-0 thanks to a brace from Mohamed Salah.
Then at 3pm, Leicester were held to a 1-1 draw by Norwich City.
- It's been a great week for Liverpool
- Salah surpasses Suarez's LFC tally
- Klopp's wages rocket since 2015
Norwich have been on a miserable run of form lately, winning just one of their previous 11 games heading into the Leicester match.
But they managed to secure a point at the King Power Stadium, producing a resilient display to frustrate Brendan Rodgers’ team.
And while Daniel Farke’s side still sit in the relegation zone, they are quickly becoming every Liverpool supporter’s second-favourite team.
The Canaries have taken points from Liverpool’s two main title rivals - Manchester City and Leicester City - and also beat Everton this season.
Norwich City help Liverpool:
- September 14: Norwich City 3-2 Man City
- November 23: Everton 0-2 Norwich City
- December 14: Leicester City 1-1 Norwich City
Oh, and Norwich also helped Liverpool get their season off to a thumping start when they were beaten 4-1 at Anfield in August.
Liverpool fans are now expressing their admiration for the Canaries, even starting a ‘Norwich appreciation thread’ on Reddit.
