THE TEAM NEWS

LIVERPOOL

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Unavailable: Clyne (Injured)

Doubtful: Mane (Rested)

  • Liverpool kick off the new Premier League season with their primary focus being on winning it after coming so close last year behind City.
  • Jurgen Klopp is expected to field something close to his strongest team although Mane could be rested after returning to training this week.
  • Oxlade-Chamberlain is fully-fit and came through pre-season unscathed and he could compete with Origi for a starting spot out wide.

NORWICH

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Fahrmann; Aarons, Godfrey, Hanley, Lewis; Trybull, Vrancic; Buendia, Stiepermann, Hernandez; Pukki

Unavailable: Thompson (Injured), Zimmermann (Injured), Klose (Injured), Tettey (Injured)

Doubtful:

  • Norwich return to the Premier League after finishing as champions in the Championship last season and survival is their primary objective.
  • The club have made a handful of new signings to strengthen their squad with Roberts, Fahrmann and Drmic expected to feature prominently.
  • Zimmermann is expected to miss the first couple of matches so Godfrey, Klose and Hanley are competing for the two central defensive roles.

THE PREDICTION

Newly-promoted Norwich face a baptism of fire as their first match on their return to the top flight comes at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp's men will be desperate to make a fast start and for all Norwich's endeavour, it will be a tough task preventing Liverpool from running away with this early on.
