Liverpool vs Norwich City: “We have to be angry again, we have to be greedy again” said Jurgen Klopp in the presser as his side readies itself for the Premier League title. Liverpool beat Tottenham Spurs in the Champions League finals & Klopp was very keen on addressing his intentions very clearly. “We have to be the team that nobody wants to play, not because of the quality but because of the intensity” mentioned the German. The Reds were outstanding last year & only a resilient Manchester City side could manage to take them down. The quest for the title is on & The Reds are certainly one of the favourites to win the title.
Norwich City will return to the top flight after 3 seasons & they’ll be up against the might of Liverpool. The Canaries won the championship last year & they’ll have their work cut out against Klopp’s men. Daniel Farke has been instrumental in his sides’ growth & the German was all praises for his counterpart’s unit. He said, “I had a little smile when I saw our first game is against Liverpool. For me, they might be the best team in the world right now. Our lack of Premier League experience could be a positive. Our naivety could be a good thing. I want my players to go out there and think about why they first started playing football. I want them to be brave and enjoy playing.”
The best football league in the world is back & 20 teams will be at it once again. Can Liverpool dethrone Manchester City? Which teams will be relegated, who will make it to the top 4?
