Daniel Sturridge misses out on Liverpool's Premier League trip to Norwich on Sunday after the striker failed to recover from a hamstring injury.

Sturridge limped off in Liverpool's key victory against title rivals Manchester City last weekend and, with manager Brendan Rodgers admitting the 24-year-old was a doubt, will not feature in the match at Carrow Road.

Steven Gerrard continues his quest for a first Premier League winners' medal, while Jordan Henderson has still travelled with the squad despite this being the first of his three-game suspension.

The impressive Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho will aid Luis Suarez in attack. Suarez has scored 11 goals in four games against Norwich - including two hat-tricks on his last two visits to Norfolk.

Norwich: Ruddy; Whittaker, Martin (c), Turner, Olsson; Johnson; Howson, Fer; Snodgrass; Redmond, Hooper

Subs: Bunn, van Wolfswinkel, Gutierrez, Garrido, R Bennett, Tettey, Josh Murphy

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Sakho, Flanagan, Gerrard, Lucas, Allen, Sterling, Coutinho, Suarez

Subs: Jones, Toure, Agger, Cissokho, Moses, Alberto, Aspas
