A warm welcome to the new Premier League season that gets underway at Anfield on Friday 9 August when Liverpool take on newly promoted Norwich City. Here are our top Liverpool v Norwich betting tips.
A Closer Look
All eyes will be on this match with a sell-out stadium and thousands more watching the live coverage being beamed out across the world courtesy of Sky Sports.
Liverpool came painfully close to winning the title last season, ending their drought, but they were pipped at the post by a dogged and determined Manchester City side who lost more games than their rivals but held on to claim two-in-a-row. Bookmakers have The Cityzens, managed by Pep Guardiola, as favourites to complete the hattrick and win three on the bounce, but there’s a lot of football to be played between now and next spring.
A Strong Start for the Scousers?
Liverpool have a chance to storm to the top of the table with a home win over a Norwich side that are expected to struggle this term and spend much of the campaign in and around the relegation places. Can The Canaries pull off an opening night upset? Bookmakers don’t believe so and offer the away win at a storming 20/1 with Ladbrokes, the draw also unlikely at 13/2 at William Hill.
Liverpool are red hot favourites to get off to the perfect start and if you fancy having a go, you’ll have to make do with the 1/6 (Ladbrokes) as there’s not a lot better around at the time of writing. That’ll push many into the specials and we’re taking Liverpool -2 goals on the handicap at 13/10, a price you’ll land when betting with Ladbrokes. Looking for a first goal scorer in this match and the new Premier League season? Mo Salah will be popular.
