Liverpool 1-1 Norwich City – Premier League – 22 October 2011

Norwich ‘keeper John Ruddy will have done his England prospects no harm at all with a man of the match performance at Anfield on Saturday. The 24-year0ld kept the visitors in the game, both early on and at the death to earn Paul Lambert’s side a superb point.

Welsh bad-boy Craig Bellamy put the Reds a goal up on half-time but chunky hitman Grant Holt headed past Pepe Reina on the hour mark to give Norwich a share of the points.

Luis Suarez was unlucky not to score against the superb Ruddy while £35million sub Andy Carroll couldn’t break the deadlock.

Liverpool stay fifth after failing to kept a clean sheet at home for the sixth league game in a row while Norwich enjoy the heady heights of seventh place in the table.
