Midfielder looking to make a point on Merseyside

NORWICH City midfielder Alex Tettey wants his side to pick up where they left off when they face Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League at Anfield on Sunday (4pm).

The Canaries moved into the top half of the table with a convincing victory over Bournemouth last weekend, and currently sit just above the Reds having each played five matches.

Speaking to the media at Colney Training Centre on Thursday afternoon, Tettey said: "It's been a good start for us, but we'd like to have more than seven points.

"The fact we're disappointed by that shows how well we've done. We've played some good stuff so far this season and we're looking to push on now.

"We have ambitions to do well and to win games. Against Liverpool we know we have to be at our best to get something from the game.

"It's important for us to be strong defensively, but also to cause them some problems."


Having spent two years in the top-flight after joining City from Rosenborg in 2012, the Norwegian international is relishing a return to one of the world's most iconic footballing arenas.

Tettey believes the upcoming meeting with Brendan Rodgers' men represents a significant moment in the season, as he explained: "It's probably our biggest test since we've been back in the Premier League.

"Liverpool are a very good team and it will give us a glimpse of where we are as a team. It will be tough, but this is what we worked so hard last year for.

"We want to test ourselves against the best players in the league. They have good midfielders who can keep the ball, but personally I'm really looking forward to going against them."
