Josip Drmic and Ralf Fahrmann are the two big additions Norwich have made this summer.

Team news
Sadio Mane is unlikely to start here having only had a week of pre-season after Senegal went deep in the summer’s African Cup of Nations.

The two other selection dilemmas surround whether Joe Gomez or Joel Matip start and whether Naby Keita or Georgino Wijnaldum feature.

Tim Krul is expected to start ahead of new signing Fahrmann here.

Tim Klose is reportedly out, meaning Grant Hanley could be given a chance to impress at Anfield.

Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Origi
Norwich City (4-3-3): Krul; Aarons, Klose, Godfrey, Lewis; Trybull, McLean, Stiepermann; Buendia, Pukki, Hernandez
