      Norwich City 0-3 Liverpool: In game and Post Match discussion
      Aug 14, 2021 04:30:44 pm






      Carrow Road waiting to host the Mighty Reds






      Starting XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Tsimikas, Milner, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jota, Mane, Salah

      Subs: Kelleher, Konate, Gomez, Fabinho, Elliott, Woodburn, Minamino, Origi, Firmino.

       Virgil van Dijk starts for Liverpool in today’s Premier League opener against Norwich City at Carrow Road.

      The centre-back is named in the Reds’ starting XI for a competitive game for the first time since last October after returning to full fitness following knee surgery.

      Elsewhere, Kostas Tsimikas replaces the injured Andy Robertson at left-back, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gets the nod in midfield.

      Joe Gomez and summer signing Ibrahima Konate are among the substitutes.

      I got the midfield three right, but wasn't expecting Virgil quite yet.

      Here's to starting a league-title campaign on a good note.

      I like that line-up.

      Very strong bench too.

      Hope to be able to watch the match with my 1 month old son.

      We need a good start and put our mark on other teams.

      Keita and AOC are rewarded for a good pre-season.

      Hope that VVD is 100% match fit. I would have rested him for Konate, but who am I.

      To think we look strong even without Robbo, Thiago, Hendo and Jones.

      VVD was always going to play this . More than enough to win this and just about getting 3 on the board

      VVD returns !! :) with Joel. Good luck to both of them, particularly VVD, big day for him. Plenty of height to defend set pieces and a threat at the other end too. If I was Norwich would probably target Kostas side.
      Really attacking with the 3 up front, with AOC and Keita too. Won't be holding back :)
      Good options on the bench too to come on.

      CMON BOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great to be back :)

      Midfield relatively untested but I’m very happy, love this team.

      Thank God for that and hope to stay like that, nothing with them but it means we have a better chance to win the PL.

      No real surprises in the line-up I suppose. Need a big game from Millie and a cool head:)

      Henderson and Thiago not on the bench. Wise decision to be able to play for the whole season.

      I expect nothing more than a trashing win today. We must outdo the 5-1 win today. Got to do it in style. No other way around…

      I’d be happy win a 1-0 win today even if it’s a scuffed shot or something.. just grab the first 3points of the season..

      Not that comfortable with the midfield but I guess we are limited there with the late returners.

      Yes, just deliberately adding unnecessary pressure and ridiculous expectations. Even Rafa is winning 3-1. We must outdo everybody else.

      Strong line up. Feel we probably should’ve gone with Konate and one of the returning CB’s but they’ve all looked like they are coming along nicely with their comebacks so far.

      The attack was anyone’s guess too, regarding Jota and Bobby, both looked good last time out.

      Keen to see Elliott get a good run out today, could be a big season for him.

      It should be a comfortable win for us but you never know, they will be more than up for it in front of their owns fans and will look to test Virgil and Matip.

      Bring back the 3 points is the main thing.

      I’ll be the first to bash the team if we score a lucky deflection and scrape a 1-0 win. I have to be very hard on our performance. It will be hard to keep me happy this season. Looks like I’m never gonna enjoy our season ahead… wish me luck!

      Not the world class midfield we would have hoped for in an opening game but, even without home advantage, should be enough in that Liverpool team to get all the points.

      My assurance and security is on world class players. This is making me anxious and fearful. Looks like we’re in for a difficult time. We should have bought more world class players. ;D I’ll hide my insecurities by bashing everyone. :aaliverpool2xt1:
