Liverpool play Norwich City at Anfield on Saturday as they look to keep the pressure on title rivals Manchester City.

Norwich find themselves in danger of relegation again and are desperate for points.

In the reverse fixture this season, Liverpool cruised to a comfortable 3-0 win with Firmino, Jota and Salah grabbing the goals.

This was Salah’s fifth consecutive season to score on the opening day of the season.

Liverpool also put three past Norwich in the Carabao Cup fixture earlier this season.

The Reds are currently unbeaten in 16 games against Norwich dating back to 1995.
