Liverpool vs Norwich –
Following the opening of EPL, Liverpool host Norwich to kick off the 2019-20 season.
The waiting is over as the English Premier League returns to take centre stage this weekend.
Missing out on the Premier League title despite a record-breaking campaign was eased by winning a sixth European Cup for Liverpool last season, but ending a 30-year wait to be crowned English champions is now more important than ever on Merseyside.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are expected to strike first blood in the title race when they kick off the Premier League season against newly-promoted Norwich under the Friday night lights of Anfield.

Anfield hosts the curtain-raiser as Jurgen Klopp’s men tackle newly-promoted Norwich.
A quiet summer on the transfer front will see the popular German go again with the group that sealed a sixth European title in the Champions League final in Madrid two months ago.
Winning the Champions League also booked Liverpool’s place in next week’s UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup in December, meaning they have five trophies to play for this season.
However, it is ending 30 years of hurt by winning a 19th league title come May that will determine whether Liverpool’s season has been a success or failure.
