Six of the last eight Premier League meetings between these sides have featured goals at both ends.

Norwich set for tough campaign
It’s safe to say that Norwich didn’t have the best of times last time they opened a Premier League campaign against Liverpool. They lost 4-1 at Anfield following their promotion in 2018/19 and a similarly heavy defeat is expected at Carrow Road on Saturday.

That defeat at Anfield in 2019 was one of 26 Premier League losses the Canaries suffered that season and while they have bounced back up after an impressive Championship win there are serious doubts over their ability to survive in the top flight. That makes them one of our top picks for relegation, and it’s no surprise that I fancy them to struggle on Saturday.

Norwich’s 97-point haul last season was undoubtedly impressive but there is a real feeling that this squad just isn’t cut out for the top flight and the loss of Emi Buendia cannot be overstated.

Klopp targets smoother ride for Reds
Liverpool endured some really tough times last season, with a defensive injury crisis ending their title defence early and a dreadful run in winter almost putting them out of the race for the top four.

A nine match unbeaten streak – the last five of which were all wins – saw them clinch third in the end, though, and with Virgil van Dijk back in action Jurgen Klopp will be hoping for a much improved effort in the coming year.

Goals galore at Carrow Road
The Reds are short-priced favourites on Saturday but there is value to be found in the goals market. There have been a huge 40 goals scored in the last eight meetings between these sides and all but two of them have gone breached the 3.5 goal line mark.

Norwich ended last season with over 3.5 goals landing in their last three games and the visiting side saw 14 goals in their last four outings. I’m backing over 3.5 goals here and with Liverpool winning and both teams scoring in five of the last eight meetings between these sides a 3-1 correct score prediction appeals, too.

Mohamed Salah is a ridiculously short price to find the net but fellow Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane offers some hope. The Senegal international didn’t do himself justice last season but ended the season with a brace against Crystal Palace before scoring in two international friendlies. He netted the winner when these two sides last met and I’m backing him to make a difference again.

Norwich predicted lineup: Krul / Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Giannoulis / McLean, Gilmour / Rashica, Vrancic, Cantwell / Pukki

Liverpool predicted lineup: Alisson / Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Tsimikas / Fabinho, Thiago, Keita / Salah, Mane, Firmino
