The Premier League starts this weekend and Norwich City returns to England’s top flight by hosting Liverpool in what should be a tough challenge. Let’s take a closer look at where the value is at in this matchup.
Back-to-back Championship titles sandwiched a Premier League relegation in 2019-20 and Norwich City now looks to improve on their previous showing in the top tier. Daniel Farke remains in charge and most of the members from the Premier League relegation season are still in the team, including Tim Krul, Max Aarons, Todd Cantwell and Teemu Pukki. All of them demonstrated they were capable to play at a high level in the Premier League.
With the talent they have in their squad, Liverpool is gearing up towards a title challenge. Despite everything being thrown at them last season they still finished third and with fewer injuries and fans back in at Anfield, they should aim to hit the ground running. Liverpool is a bit more settled, than teams like Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea, as they’ve got quality throughout the field and they’ll be so determined to get that Premier League title back.
