Klopp is positive Henderson will be sorted soon. In other, marginally less important news, I'm starting to feel really excited for the game tonight now. Last season felt over once we were out of Europe, so although most fans seem to be burnt out from over exposure, I'm right up for this season.

A few players seem a bit more confident and solid somehow, maybe new contracts help. Trent with his new Lenny Kravitz kinda look, Alisson with the slightest hint of a gut. Beginning to look like PL vets now. Just a tiny bit grizzlier than last year.

Reminder - NO pundits predicted this Liverpool team can win the Premier League. This team, which absolutely steamrolled the rest just 2 years ago, and has added Konate, Jota, and Thiago since then. Why bring this up? Because watching that felt like watching them, something I hardly ever got to say last season.

Let them keep thinking that I say.

Yeah, I think being underdogs will suit us.

 

I thought the midfield today was fine, without being spectacular, but everyone else was great today. We've not had much chance to see Tsimikas prior to today, but aside from him falling asleep and conceding possession cheaply late on, he did a pretty good Robertson impression. 

 

That Salah though...

Not sure how it looked on tv but i didnt think Liverpool looked fully at it but good win and point on the board is all that matters. Away fans were great after you scored, packed away end and some good singing!! From my perspective your front line looked good but defensively pretty poor - poor finishing and open goal miss for the clean sheet rather than a solid display.

 

Bloody brilliant being back in a ground tho 😃

Nah, Norwich got in behind the defence on a number of teams but (thankfully) lacked the quality to punish us. Whilst we were ultimately quite comfortable (that Allison double-save was the only thing he did), it was a professional performance rather than dazzling.

 

Points on the board though and a clean sheet is all that matters right now, but I do think the lack of squad depth and quality outside the first 11 will tell over the course of the season.

Decent bench that even without Thiago, Henderson and Robertson available.

 

Today looked like a friendly match to me.  Quite slow, players didn't look as fit as they should/will be but we never looked particularly troubled.  Great to see VVD pinging those 40 yard cross field balls again!!

 

Lovely start to the season.

Decent peformance, Norwich had chances but did not convert. I was worried about the midfield of Keita, Ox & Milner they had an ok game but nothing creative going forward. It was good to see our fullbacks get higher up the field and make crosses.

 

Burnley next.

That's good to hear.  In other news I was shocked to see Van Dijk is 30!  I was sure he was 27/28😳


Yeah, I thought he was a bit younger too. I know defenders tend to go on longer but there will be a lot of players ageing out in a few years. I wonder what the squad will look like when Klopp’s contract runs out.
