Team news for Norwich vs Liverpool
Due to a Covid epidemic among Norwich's squad, Daniel Farke is having trouble adjusting to the club's return to the Premier League. Teemu Pukki is aiming to return to the lineup, although Todd Cantwell has returned from an ankle injury.
Billy Gilmour, on loan from Chelsea, is expected to make his debut and might be joined on the bench by newcomers Josh Sargent and Christos Tzolis.
Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez will return to Liverpool, but due to an injury to Andy Robertson, Kostas Tsimikas will be called upon to fill in.
In midfield and attack, things get a little more tricky. Along with James Milner and Fabinho, Naby Keita and Harvey Elliott will likely compete for the third midfield spot, while Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino will fight it out for a spot alongside Mo Salah and Sadio Mane.
Prediction for Norwich versus Liverpool
Norwich have returned to the Championship after another successful promotion campaign, but it will be difficult for any club to match, much alone beat, Liverpool.
Norwich will take anything they can get from the Reds as a bonus since they know their major struggles will be elsewhere. I can't see anything but a 3-1 Liverpool victory at Carrow Road.
