PremierLeague: Norwich vs Liverpool

After not being able to successfully defend the throne last season, Liverpool must have learned a great lesson. They start this season with an away game against Norwich and are keen to put their mark on their championship goals this season. The fact that the opponent is just a "wet foot" rookie, the advantage for Liverpool to bring home the victory is huge.

Norwich vs Liverpool

Referring to Norwich, English football fans are no stranger to this name. Two seasons ago, the "Canary" was still in the Premier League and they had to be relegated to play in the Championship. Last season, Norwich had an impressive performance to take the throne, thereby snatching the promotion ticket. A convincing performance by coach Daniel Farke and his students, when they brought back 97 points after 46 rounds. The upcoming confrontation with Liverpool brings many emotions to Norwich fans. Remember 2 seasons ago, Norwich also played the opening match against Liverpool and they failed, the end result of the season "Canary" had to leave the Premier League.

Last summer, Norwich lost Emiliano Buendia to Aston Villa. While Todd Cantwell's future is still not really clear, along with the appearance of Covid, some members of the BHL as well as players have to be temporarily isolated. To look forward to the new season, Norwich played 5 friendlies and they won 4 of them. Even in the 4 victories mentioned above, Norwich kept 3 clean sheets. Statistics show that Norwich lost the last 10 matches in the Premier League. This team also could not score in the last 9/10 matches at the most prestigious playground in the foggy country. With the current situation, the possibility of Norwich making a surprise against Liverpool is quite small.

The unstable performance last season made Liverpool unable to successfully defend the throne. Even coach Klopp's teachers and students were almost absent from the Champions League this season. They brought back 69 points last season and finished 3rd overall, their distance to Leicester's 5th place is only 3 points. It was the excellent performance and 5 winning matches in the last rounds that helped The Kop overcome the death door. They ended the summer friendly campaign with a 3-1 victory over Osasuna, in the past 8 matches Liverpool only had to receive 1 defeat.

In the last 5 matches, Liverpool did not lose in the first half. In terms of personnel situation, full-back Andy Robertson is certain to miss this match after suffering an ankle injury, along with Jordan Henderson is unlikely to feature after a busy Euro with England. However, defender Virgil van Dijk is back with goalkeeper Alisson Becker. This is definitely a solid fulcrum for Liverpool to aim to conquer the title this season. In the last 10 encounters with Norwich, Liverpool were unbeaten when drawing 2 and won 8. With superior strength, it is clear that the winning door for The Kop is extremely open.
