Norwich boss Daniel Farke accepts his side are among the favourites for relegation but is convinced they are more than capable of competing in the Premier League.
The Canaries open the campaign at Liverpool on Friday night and Farke is relishing the prospect of taking on the European champions, who finished just one point behind league champions Manchester City last year.
Norwich won the Championship with an attacking brand of football last season and Farke has previously admitted his players will have to focus more on the defensive side of the game now they are competing in the Premier League, but they still intend to stick to their principals at Anfield.
“We want to be the protagonists, our approach will always be to attack, to be proactive,” said Farke, as reported by The Mirror. “You won’t see us park the bus and pray for a twice-deflected set-piece to score goals.
“With one more point last season, they (Liverpool) could have changed the world and to play the Champions League winners, probably the best team in the world, is the toughest task you can have.
“We are not naive and we know we are probably favourites for 20th place in this league, but we will not raise the white flag. “Last year in the Championship, we were able to break all the rules and we are looking forward to breaking more rules this season.”
Norwich are 17.00 to win at Liverpool and the draw is 8.50. A Canaries win or a draw is 5.25 in the double chance market.
