The Premier League Officially Returns Tonight After The Longest 89 Days Ever
Ladies and gentlemen, The Premier League will officially return to our screens on Friday night as Liverpool host Norwich, and we couldn't be happier about life.
Jurgen Klopp's side go into the game as strong favourites but the German claims if his side aren't at 100%, they will be found out as they prepare to challenge for the title again.
"The first game of the season is always difficult." he said before kick-off. "Norwich have a clear plan and they have all my respect.
"These fixtures are always the banana skins. If you are not at 100%, you will slip."
"Everything is against you, even the weather." :eyes:

Meanwhile newly promoted Norwich will be looking to avoid relegation on their return to the top flight.
Daniel Farke, the mastermind behind The Canaries achieving automatic promotion last season, believes Liverpool might be "the best team in the world" right now.
But he wants his players to be brave at Anfield.

"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."
:speaking_head:️ "Let's go out with some mates on the pitch and play some football and let's be brave."
Daniel Farke wants his team to stick to this philosophy.
