The Premier League returns this Friday evening as newly promoted Norwich head to Anfield to take on the runners-up from last season Liverpool.
The Reds amassed no fewer than 97pts in the Premier League last campaign only to be pipped to the title by Guardiola’s Manchester City. Opponents Norwich, meanwhile- were crowned champions of the Championship with an impressive 94pts (27W 13D 6L).
The Canaries have been relatively quiet in the transfer window with defender Sam Byram the only substantial signing arriving in East Anglia this Summer- joining for £750,000 from West Ham. Whilst Patrick Roberts and stopper Ralf Fahrmann have both arrived on season long loan deals.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side were defeated on penalties in the Community Shield at Wembley last Sunday with Joel Matip scoring the only goal in regulation time.
The Cameroonian defender is 28/1 with Bet365 to score the first goal of the 2019-20 Premier League season.
Liverpool won their opening game 4-0 against West Ham last season and 4-0 (Correct Score) this Friday is 17/2 with Bet365.
