Premier League football is finally back as Liverpool take on Norwich City at Anfield

The Reds lost just one game last season, but were still pipped to the title by a single point by Pep Guardiola’s men.

For Norwich, Daniel Farke has worked miracles at Carrow Road to get the Canaries back on song after their relegation from the top flight in 2016.

After his first season in charge ended in mid-table mediocrity, the German led his side to the Championship title. Here’s how both sides line up at Anfield.

Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Origi, Salah, Firmino

Norwich XI: Krul; Aarons, Godfrey, Hanley, Lewis; Cantwell, Trybull; Buendia, Stipeman, McLean; Pukki

Sadio Mane is only fit enough for the bench, with Champions League hero Divock Origi taking his place.

Teemu Pukki hit 30 goals in the Championship last season, but finds himself up against arguably the best defender in the world in the hulking presence of Virgil van Dijk.
