The Reds kick off the new domestic season under the Anfield lights tonight, as they host newly promoted Norwich.
While Daniel Farke’s side are suffering with a host of injuries problems in defence, Jurgen Klopp was right to stress in his pre-match press conference that the Canaries cannot be underestimated.
Despite losing in the Community Shield on Sunday, Liverpool showed they have the capacity to hit the ground running as they fight for the title this season.
And Klopp has been able to name the majority of his key players in his starting lineup for the curtain-raiser, beginning with Alisson in goal.
This leaves the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri on Klopp’s substitutes’ bench along with the No. 10, in a game which could see the Reds take an early lead at the top of the table.
Substitutes: Adrian, Matip, Milner, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Shaqiri, Mane
Norwich: Krul; Aarons, Hanley, Godfrey, Lewis; Trybull, McLean; Buendia, Stiepermann, Cantwell; Pukki
Substitutes: Fahrmann, Byram, Roberts, Vrancic, Leitner, Hernandez, Drmic
