Liverpool Starts New Season in Style

Liverpool kicked off the new Premier League season with a convincing 4-1 victory over Norwich City at Anfield on Friday.

Last season’s record-breaking runners-up Liverpool wasted no time in setting about getting maximum points, with Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk adding to Grant Hanley’s comical own goal within the opening 30 minutes.

Divock Origi made it four in the 42nd minute on his 100th Reds appearance but Jurgen Klopp’s side were unable to add to their tally and Teemu Pukki netted a consolation strike for the newly-promote side.

However, the real sour note for Liverpool was the loss of goalkeeper Alisson, who had to be replaced by debutant Adrian in the first half after appearing to sustain a hamstring injury taking a goal-kick.
