Liverpool vs Norwich Live
When the world tunes in for Friday’s curtain raiser of this season’s English Premier League, they will be witnessing a true baptism of fire.
After threes seasons out of the top flight, Norwich City travels to Anfield as a rank outsider. Among the hot favorites to be relegated, many predict the newly-promoted team to provide little opposition to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, still riding the wave of its UEFA Champions League triumph last season.
And who can blame them? After all, the disparity between the two clubs is cavernous.

As well as starting the new season as the reigning European champion, Liverpool finished second in the league last season — falling just short of Manchester City by a single point in one of the most tightly fought campaigns in the history of the division.
And let’s not forget Liverpool’s history. The Reds have won the domestic title 18 times and have been champions on Europe on six occasions. Meanwhile Nowich has spent most of its modern history yo-yoing between the first and second tiers of English football.
“Apprehension is probably the overriding emotion for me,” said lifelong Norwich fan Jack Reeve, founder of podcast Talk Norwich City, speaking to CNN Sport ahead of Friday’s game.
“Nobody expected us to go up last season so I guess that puts us in a tricky situation. We are where we are but we didn’t expect to be here.”
Reeve has spent six years growing his fan podcast which now boasts over 16,000 YouTube subscribers.
The 21-year-old knows the club more than most having interviewed players both past and present whilst following his team up and down the country.
Like many Norwich fans, he is excited to be back with the “big boys” this season having watched his side languish in obscurity in recent years and knows exactly what this game means to the wider community.
“You’re almost in a little bubble because wherever you go, everyone supports Norwich,” he added, describing the buzz around the city ahead of the season.
“Norwich is not very well connected so it feels like us against them at times. People don’t want us to succeed, so we will try even harder to succeed.”
