Norwich vs Liverpool Live
Liverpool welcome newly promoted Norwich City to Anfield for the Premier League’s curtain raiser to kick off the 2019/20 campaign.
It’s safe to say these are two sides with completely different ambitions for the upcoming season. Liverpool will be aiming to go one better after finishing second behind Manchester City, while Premier League survival will be more than satisfactory for Championship winners Norwich.
Liverpool’s deadly front three were short of game time during pre-season but two thirds look set to start the first game of the season.
Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah played against Manchester City on Sunday, but Sadio Mane likely won’t be rushed back after reaching the AFCON final with Senegal.

How To Watch Norwich vs Liverpool Live EPL Game On HDQ
Unsurprisingly, Liverpool have had the better of this fixture, having won seven and drawn two of the nine fixtures since the turn of the millennium.
But this is a match which has been far more entertaining and unpredictable than those statistics might suggest. The latest encounter was a thrilling 5-4 Liverpool victory at Carrow Road during the 2015/16 season, while they also secured a narrow 3-2 win in the 2013/14 campaign.
In fact, this tie consistently produces plenty of goals so we can hope for more of the same on Friday evening; Liverpool have put at least three past their opponents in six of those nine matches.
Pre-season form isn’t an overly reliable method of predicting results come the start of a new campaign, but they’re worth taking a look at nonetheless.
Liverpool’s pre-season hasn’t been entirely successful; they won just three of their seven fixtures, two of which came against much weaker opposition in the form of Tranmere and Bradford. Their only other victory came against Lyon in their final match.
