Betting tips Liverpool v Norwich

Liverpool to show their class on day one

Norwich City are back in the big time and nothing will act as a reminder of the fact more than a trip to Anfield. Can the Canaries sing sweetly on Merseyside or will the Reds have too much quality? Have a read of our preview here:

So Farke, so good

If anything screams about the need for patience with new managers, it is surely the Daniel Farke situation at Norwich. He has a lot of doubters when he first took charge especially so when results were not going well but boy did he get things right last season.

Given the time to assert his system and style, the German has produced a side capable of playing high pressing, attractive football. Sound familiar? Well it might, the man is another highly talented coach to have learnt his trade at the Dortmund school of Gengen pressing. He will be very familiar with the work of Jurgen Klopp and, in fact, there are a lot of similarities between the two sides despite being at different ends of the Premier League budget scale.

Norwich were the Liverpool of the Championship in 2018-19 and fully deserved their promotion. The contribution of the front four, much like at Anfield, played a huge role in the club’s success and with some quality additions the Canaries look ready to compete amongst the elite once again.

Those old enough to remember Norwich knocking Bayern Munich out of 1993-94 UEFA Cup will be wistfully hoping for a return of such glorious nights in Norfolk and with Farke at the helm, it may not be as crazy as it sounds.

Can Liverpool achieve the impossible?

Winning the Premier League this season will be even more of a challenge for Jurgen Klopp’s side, not because they have any less quality than last season, but more because of the difficult summer they’ve experienced.

Despite what some will tell you, having several of your key players not return to training until very late in the summer will make a difference. Liverpool saw Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah all involved in international football during the off-season and with Manchester City looking fresher, it will be even harder for them to win the title.

Realistically, Liverpool are the only side that can compete with Pep’s City. Manchester United are still rebuilding while Chelsea are under an embargo (one that might actually see them play some of their youngsters for a change) while Spurs and Arsenal are likely to be playing catch up once more.

If Liverpool are to finally win a Premier League crown, they will need to be as good, if not better than last season.

Liverpool vs Norwich betting tip

It’s great to see Norwich back in the top-flight but they have been dealt difficult opening fixture. Despite Liverpool not having the ideal summer, there is still too much quality in the squad for the not to take the points here. That’s why picking Liverpool to win to nil at odds of 8/11 is a fair way to get the Premier League betting off to a start.
