The likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United have made stellar signings this summer, and it promises to be a tight title race this time around.
The Reds have only added Ibrahima Konate to their ranks, but the return of several key players from injuries — notably Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain — feels like new additions.
Liverpool finished third in the league table last season, and they will hope to prove that last season’s underwhelming performance was due to bad luck with injuries.
Andy Robertson picked up an ankle ligament injury and he could be out for a while. However, Kostas Tsimikas, who barely featured last season, has been superb during the pre-season and he is ready to step up in the absence of the Scottish left-back.
The 25-year-old appears to have settled down, and after enjoying a solid pre-season, free from injuries, he is looking fitter and sharper.
Curtis Jones, who is expected to fill the void left by Gini Wijnaldum, has been ruled out of the game against the Canaries after suffering a concussion in the 3-1 win over Osasuna on Monday night.
Jurgen Klopp also hinted that the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson could be given an extended rest. James Milner could start in midfield.
Predicted Liverpool starting line-up vs Norwich: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas, Keita, Fabinho, Jota, Mane, Salah, Firmino.
