Liverpool Vs Norwich City : Five points to take away with the Reds thrashing the Canaries in the first game of the Premier League 2019/20.
Liverpool have shown that they are the definite contenders to win the Premier League this season, as their exploitation against Norwich City has cited their brilliance with ruthless attacking football.
Jurgen Klopp’s side haven’t been as brilliant as they usually are, but they still managed to end their chances to see themselves demolishing the newly promoted Norwich City in the first game-day of the league.
The Canaries luck against Liverpool is still not over, as they have failed to defeat them even once in the last 12 encounters, and most of the times remained defeated by the Reds.
Today also Liverpool were considered favourites but still such a gulf was not expected. The Kopites with their first four goals in the first half ended the match then and there only.
However, several schoolboy errors and unfortunate events made Norwich City ‘s performance unpleasant. In the first goal, the blunder by Grant Hanley against Divock Origi’s shot was converted into an own goal.
Further, Mohamed Salah extended the lead after several schoolboy errors by the Canaries defence propelled the Egyptian International to score.
Later, Liverpool did not spare the visitors, as a standing header goal by Virgil Van Dijk, and Origi’s goal ended the match with the Reds taking the three points home.
Although, Norwich City were able to take a consolation goal home, as a goal by Teemu Pukki made the score-line into 4-1. Thus, this short-lived match has a lot to point out. So, without further ado, we talk about five points in the match to talk about.
#5 Norwich City came prepared but failed
In the initial minutes of the match, Norwich City showed a good fight, and it seemed that the newly-promoted side might damage the Reds, and it won’t be easy for Jurgen Klopp’s side tonight.
Daniel Farke is known for the brand of football, which is also played by Klopp and Liverpool have been successful in the same system too, but the Canaries failed to replicate the same thing which the Kopites were able to do.
In fact, after conceding the first goal, the visitors seemed distressed, and it looked like the opposition are losing the will to make a comeback in the match, which eventually allowed Liverpool to dominate further and find the net again and again.
