      Who's afraid of the storm? I've a tip for you.

      When you walk through a storm, hold your head up high and don't be afraid of the dark.
      At the end of a storm, there's a golden sky and the sweet silver song of a lark.
      Walk on through the wind. Walk on through the rain, though your dreams be tossed and blown.
      Walk on. Walk on with hope in your heart, and you'll never walk alone. You'll never walk alone.

      It seems an age since we last played.

      Strongest team possible, get the game won ASAP then make changes ready for Atleti.

      In fairness there is no reason we should be any less sharp than Norwich, who have had the same break, it might be a bit of a scrappy game but I'm fairly confident we'll get it won, hopefully by a healthy margin.

      Adrian
      Williams, Matip, Lovren, Milner
      Lallana, Keita, Ox
      Minamino, Origi, Jones

      Then 11 changes for Atletico?

      I don't think J├╝rgen takes "risks" he will want to see his players are game ready for Athletico and if all goes well sub them later on.
      This is a perfect game to get back up to speed after a break.

      looking at the forecast I wouldn't be at all surprised if its called off. Norwich is going to get 60mph winds at 5pm you cant play football in that.
      The safety of the travelling fans is also a factor but hopefully if it is off they announce it early enough before they start making their Journey.

      No Olympics decision yet on Salah
      Norwich v Liverpool (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

      Liverpool

      Liverpool manager J├╝rgen Klopp starts by providing an update on the chances of Mohamed Salah representing Egypt at the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

      He said: "Do I want to lose a player during pre-season? Of course not. But we have to consider different things.

      "We need more information. How would it look? When will preparation start? Nobody has really contacted us so far. So no decision made yet but we'll see."

      Tokyo 2020 decision with Liverpool & Salah - Egypt boss

      Liverpool

      Earlier this week we reported on how Egypt coach Shawky Gharib said that Mohamed Salah's potential involvement at Tokyo 2020 will be a decision for the player and his club Liverpool.

      The forward, 27, is on Egypt's provisional 50-man list for the football tournament, which will hold its final on 8 August - the first day of the 2020-21 Premier League season.

      "We cannot force Salah to participate with us," Gharib told Reuters.

      The tournament is for under-23 teams but three over-age players are allowed.

      Klopp's not underestimating Canaries
      Norwich v Liverpool (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

      Liverpool

      It's top versus bottom at Carrow Road on Saturday but Liverpool boss J├╝rgen Klopp will be taking nothing for granted.

      He said: "People think it will be easy because they don't really think about it and they only watch the table but we know about the problems we can have - and we know about the problems we can cause them as well."

      'Make this game the most important of our lives'
      Norwich v Liverpool (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

      J├╝rgen Klopp is still only focused on the next game rather than entertaining title talk. That's worked pretty well for Liverpool so far so why change now?

      "Norwich is obviously my first concern," said the German boss. "We have prepared ourselves since Monday for this game. We didn't speak about anything else.

      "We have no other chance than to make this game the most important game of our lives. Play it on Saturday and try with all we have to win it."

      Klopp pleased with mid-season break
      Norwich v Liverpool (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

      Liverpool boss J├╝rgen Klopp added: "We sent players all over the world, we wanted them really to rest. I can see a difference in training.

      "But it's not about seeing a difference against Norwich, it's about using this time for rest and recovery."

      Mane & Milner in contention
      Norwich v Liverpool (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

      With Sadio Mane and James Milner having recovered from injury, J├╝rgen Klopp has no qualms about putting them straight back in at Carrow Road.

      "Of course they are in contention," he said. "It looks like - and I hope it stays like this - apart from [Xherdan] Shaqiri, [Nathaniel] Clyne and [Paul] Glatzel, all players are in training."

      Playing through pain is normal - Klopp
      Norwich v Liverpool (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

      J├╝rgen Klopp feels the mid-season break came at a good time, after a busy festive period, given the condition of his players.

      "I was a player myself," he said. "When I look back it feels like I played through 80% of the time with pain. Nobody appreciated that because I played still bad so it didn't help. Nobody asked then.

      "It is completely normal for a professional football player to play through pain. That's how it is.

      "After that long period in December-January, there was no player in the squad who had no pain. Everybody had something."

      Klopp's an admirer of the Canaries' football
      Norwich v Liverpool (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

      Like J├╝rgen Klopp, Norwich boss Daniel Farke coached at Borussia Dortmund before heading to England.

      "I really admire that Norwich stick to their principles," Klopp added. "It's really good football, super coaching. You can see all the patterns on the pitch, all the movements - that's from the training ground.

      "They've caused 95% of all teams real problems. They've lost a lot of these games, that's why they're in the situation they are, but for me, on the outside, it looks like a club that really sticks together."

      'It was a good warning for us'
      Norwich v Liverpool (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

      J├╝rgen Klopp remembers the impressive performance of Daniel Farke's side in the opening game of the season, when the Canaries took the game to Liverpool but ultimately lost.

      He said: "We scored four, they scored one, but they had much more chances in that game. That's what we have to think about.

      "It was a really good warning and a good start in the season for us. It was early and we were not that consistent at that time."

      The Liverpool boss added: "Now both teams are in a different situation but we will feel the quality of Norwich and we have to make sure they feel our quality."

      A dream preparation week for Klopp
      Norwich v Liverpool (Sat, 17:30 GMT)

      J├╝rgen Klopp said: "The dream of a manager is to have a full week to prepare for a game. You have intense training sessions which you normally cannot have. Usually the most intense session is the game.

      "So we use that week, we train hard. You don't really lose anything. You find your own rhythm again."

      Can't see it being called off. Yellow warning isn't too bad, games have been played in similar & even harsher conditions in the not too distant past. Quality of football will probably be worse than we're used to but that's about it

      You could be right Walt.  The local forecast here is it is not supposed to get bad until late evening.
      But we know how often they get it wrong.
      Would be sods law as I have a ticket for this and it's in with the travelling Kop.
