Norwich City and Liverpool meet at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon as both sides begin their respective Premier League campaigns.
These teams met on the opening day of the 2019-20 campaign in a match which saw the Reds go 4-0 up after 42 minutes to provide a hefty dose of reality to the Canaries on their top-flight return, and the east Anglia outfit will be hoping to avoid a repeat.

Norwich City vs Liverpool team news
Daniel Farke’s side have been hit by an outbreak of coronavirus and, while there have been no new cases this week, there are a number of players whose participation is doubtful.
Grant Hanley, Onel Hernandez, Jordan Hugill and Bali Mumba are among the players that could miss out, while Todd Cantwell suffered an ankle injury last week and is also a doubt.
Liverpool are without Andy Robertson who picked up an ankle problem in pre-season against Athletic Club, while Curtis Jones also looks set to be sidelined.
Norwich City vs Liverpool preview
Norwich’s last appearance in the Premier League saw them end the 2019-20 season bottom of the table with the worst defensive record and the poorest goalscoring return.
Indeed, the Canaries conceded an average of two goals a game, something which will have to improve significantly for them to avoid another immediate return to the Championship.
Liverpool, meanwhile, ended last season extremely strongly, bouncing back from a catastrophic opening two months of 2021, to end up in third after a run of five consecutive wins at the end of the campaign.
The Reds should be able to see off Norwich, as they usually do, without too many problems and there should be plenty of interest in investing in an away win on Saturday afternoon.
Norwich City vs Liverpool tips & predictions
Liverpool to win and score under 3.5 goals is priced at 3/4 (1.75) and looks an excellent way to back the Merseysiders, with this selection paying out in 16 of their 20 Premier League victories last season.
