The Premier League returns tonight as the Reds take on newly-promoted Norwich City at Anfield in the first of 38 fixtures that will hopefully see the wait for a league title come to an end.
Ahead of the game, these are the three best statistics courtesy of LiverpoolFC.com.
The previous 16 Premier League meetings between the two sides have produced an average of 3.93 goals per game. That’s a higher average than against any other team to have played for Reds more than four times in the same period.
Over the seasons, there have been loads of matches with massive scorelines – like the last-gasp 5-4 victory at Carrow Road with Adam Lallana’s late winner. All of the goalscorers on that day remain at the club, though the Reds will be hoping for a more straightforward victory this evening.
Roberto Firmino, another who netted that day, is two goals away from having scored 50 for the club in the league. He will start up top tonight and looked very sharp last weekend at Wembley.
The last time the Reds faced a newly-promoted team at home on the opening day was in 1991. That game finished 2-1 against Oldham Athletic, the team the Reds’ U21s played on Wednesday night.
It’s great to have Premier League football back – we can’t wait for kick-off!
