Friday, August 09, 2019 - After what looked like an eternity, the 2019-20 Premier League campaign gets underway tonight as last season's runners-up, Liverpool, take on newcomers Norwich City at Anfield.
The Reds recorded the third highest points tally in Premier League history and were beaten just once all season, yet they were still pipped to the title by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City juggernaut
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 25 Premier League home games against promoted teams and are yet to lose at Anfield in 40 games in all competitions.
On the other hand, Norwich are back in the top flight after a four year hiatus but facing the red hot reds will be nothing short of baptism of fire.
The head-to-head record does not make good reading for Norwich in this fixture, with Liverpool unbeaten against the Canaries in 12 matches since 1994.
Liverpool have scored 39 goals in those games, and 10 of them have resulted in victory - most recently a thrilling 5-4 victory at Carrow Road in January 2016.
It’s worth noting that Norwich have conceded more goals against Liverpool than any other team in the Premier League.
Prediction: Liverpool 3-0 Norwich.
Klopp’s European champions will look to put down a marker ahead of another expected title challenge and we expect the likes of Mo Salah to guide the Reds to a routine victory.
