Liverpool kick off their new Premier League season EPL with a thrashing of Norwich City 4-1 at Anfield this morning.

Liverpool, ahead in the seventh minute when Norwich captain Grant Hanley scored his own goal after failing to pull off a Divock Origi try.

Mohamed Salah doubled the lead in the 19th minute with a left-footed shot after Roberto Firmino and Norwich looked set to score when the third goal came in the 28th minute through Virgil van Dijk’s net from the wrong corner.

Liverpool were in for a shocking moment when Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker was forced off the field in the 39th minute due to a calf injury and was replaced by newly acquired Spanish goalkeeper Adrian, playing for the first time in EPL at Anfield.

Origi added a fourth goal just before the break with a solid header to right corner of Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross.

Norwich, however, got a consolation goal through Finnish goalkeeper Teemu Pukki, in the 64th minute with a timely delivery by Emiliano Buendia that misled the defense.
