The Premier League is finally back as the European Champions, Liverpool, take on the newly promoted Norwich City Live in the first game of the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side has been relatively quiet in the summer transfer window with the German manager claiming that the Anfield side doesn’t need to sign players just for the sake of it:
“You should never do transfers because other clubs are doing transfers. That makes no sense, it’s not about that. And if you sit back for a second and have a look at the squad, do we need more players?”

Liverpool’s two-third of the front three, which includes Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, should start the game against the newly-promoted side.
However, Sadio Mane, who had an extended break, owing to his appearance in the AFCON tournament, won’t be rushed back for this fixture. That should mean a start for Divock Origi with Salah and Firmino on either side of him.
For Norwich City, Christoph Zimmermann, Louis Thompson, and Alexander Tettey will miss the game due to injuries. However, Timm Klose could return for the visitors at the back.
PREDICTED STARTING ELEVEN
Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Andy Robertson; Jordan Henderson, Giorgino Wijnaldum, Fabinho; Mohamed Salah, Divock Origi, Roberto Firmino
Liverpool aren’t 100% there yet, but the home side should have enough to get past the newly promoted Norwich City at the Anfield.
We predict a 3-1 win for the Reds with Salah and Origi getting on the scoresheet.
