Read our Liverpool vs Norwich City preview to find out the team news, match timings, predicted lineups, telecast details and more

Premier League is finally back and the last season runners-up will host the Premier League new comers in the first match. Liverpool will look to make a good start to this new campaign and lay the foundation of a solid season.

They enjoyed a great last season, racking up 97 points. However, it was only good enough to earn them the second place. This season they will hope to go all the way.

Norwich, on the other hand, are not a side to be taken lightly. They stormed to the Championship title while playing some scintillating possession-based football. Those tactics will be put to their biggest test when they face the aggressive pressing game of their hosts.

Mane played no part in pre-season after helping Senegal to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations. The Premier League Golden Boot winner rejoined his teammates earlier this week after an extended break. But Klopp may opt to use Champions League hero Divock Origi up front in order to give Mane more time to get back up to speed.

Midfielder James Milner, who missed the Community Shield last weekend, has recovered from a muscle strain. However, it is unlikely that he will be thrown into the action straight away.
