It wasn’t the title defence that Liverpool were after last season. Having lifted their first-ever Premier League trophy following the 2019/20 campaign, the Reds finished 17 points behind Man City and five behind Man Utd to finish in third place.
Of course, a defensive crisis saw the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip miss large parts of the season.
The former was the most significant loss after he transformed their team with his arrival from Southampton in January 2018, and now back to fitness a lot of their hopes will be riding on him as well as new arrival Ibrahima Konate.
Norwich are back in the top flight after a one year absence. They have perhaps lost their best player in Emiliano Buendia to Aston Villa, but the Championship winners have made a number of recruits to try and bluster their squad.
The Canaries have converted loans of Ben Gibson and Dimitris Giannoulis and have secured the signature of Kosovo international Milot Rashica from Werder Bremen.
Daniel Farke continues to manage the team and having come out to say his side are much better prepared for England’s top flight this time around, he’ll certainly want to put in a better showing than their W5-D6-L27 record back in 2019/20.
Liverpool To Win And Over 2.5 Goals
Jurgen Klopp’s men won all 12 of their fixtures with promoted outfits between the start 2018/19 and the end of the 2019/20 season, but last term they went a mere W2-D3-L1.
We’d be inclined to think that now back to full strength the Reds of old will come back to life, especially since only Andy Robertson and Jordan Henderson look likely to miss the opener.
Moreover, they’ve scored four goals and won each of their three openers over the last three seasons, coming against West Ham, Norwich themselves and Leeds last term.
The visitors have won their last seven trips to Carrow road, with four of the five since the start of the 2011/12 season seeing more than two goals, averaging at five goals per game across them.
A statement will want to be made by this Liverpool side to show they mean business for the start of the new season, and what better way than going out and thumping the new arrivals.
Seven of the visitors last nine victorious trips to opposition have seen them win and at least three goals scored, and that looks like the value option again.
