Norwich vs Liverpool
2020/21 was quite a disappointing campaign for Liverpool.
After securing their first Premier League title just a few months earlier, the Reds were certainly eager to mount a respectable title defense.
However, a series of injuries to some of their biggest stars quickly put an end to this, and Liverpool eventually settled for a 3rd final place in the league.
But now that those stars are back in action, Liverpool certainly have much more hope of challenging players like Manchester City and Manchester United this season.
Liverpool 2021/22, like their 2019/20 title, will start with a clash against newly promoted Norwich City.
Canarias would dominate the championship last time out, but Liverpool, despite the tie being at Carrow Road, should still be seen as the favorite for the game.
Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool news
Before facing Norwich on Saturday night, Jurgen Klopp held his final pre-match press conference on Friday.
In said press, Klopp would talk about Liverpool’s current injury problems.
And according to the German, Andy Robertson is Liverpool’s only serious injury concern ahead of Norwich.
Curtis Jones too to miss the game due to concussion protocols, while Klopp confirmed that Jordan Henderson and Thiago started their preseason late:
“All the players are here, but Thiago / Henderson started late. We are not preparing for 1 game, a full season in the most intense league in the world. Everyone else trained for 2 or 5 weeks. We have no major injuries other than Robbo. Curtis is in shape, he’s just [concussion] protocol, we respect it. “
