The English Premier League is back, and the team that missed out on last season’s title by a single point despite compiling the third-highest point total in the league’s 27-year history with 97, per The Football Faithful, returns to action. Liverpool FC, who went on to win the UEFA Champions League despite missing out in the domestic trophy, plays in front of their home crowd on opening day when they face a side making its return to the top-flight after three years in the championship.
But under German manager Daniel Farke, as Canaries.co.uk reported, the Norwich team has rebuilt and cruised to the second-tier title last season, earning them the right to face Liverpool in the match that will live stream from Anfield.

Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. British Summer Time on Friday, August 9, at the iconic 53,000-seat Anfield stadium in Liverpool, Merseyside, England.
In Italy and across central Europe kickoff will take place at 9 p.m. Central European Time, while in the United States, fans can watch the game at 3 p.m. EDT, noon PDT. In India, the Reds vs. Canaries match starts at 12:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, India Standard Time.
Despite last season’s successes, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he has told his team that they must stay “angry” and “greedy” in the 2019-2020 campaign.
“We have to stay the team nobody wants to play against,” Klopp told the BBC. “Not because of the name or the quality but the intensity.”
The Liverpool team certainly will not be lacking respect from the Canaries, Farke — who managed Borussia Dortmund’s junior team before coming to Norwich City as the club’s first non-United Kingdom-born coach — calls the Reds “the best team in the world right now,” but adds that his team’s “naiveté” may suit them well going against the traditional Premier League powerhouse.
While Norwich City has not played a top-flight game since 2016, they have never had much success against Liverpool, winning their last match over the Reds in 1994. Since then, in 12 meetings, Liverpool has won 10 with two draws.
