The Premier League is Back!

Yes, it is back and yesterday was the first match of the season.

League runners-up Liverpool hosted promoted side Norwich City at Anfield for the first match of Matchday 1.

Liverpool got the first goal of the season after just 7 minutes, but it was through no effort of their own.

Norwich City’s Grant Hanley tried to clear the ball but sliced it past his own keeper instead.

Liverpool went on to score 3 goals before halftime, showing absolutely no mercy to the new kids on the block.

However, it came at a cost. Liverpool goalkeeper, Alisson slipped while trying to get the ball and sustained an injury to his calf. He had to be substituted by new signing Adrian.

The visitors managed to get one back near the end of the game, but by then, the damage was already done.

Liverpool won their first match of the season with 3 goals difference and the first goal of the new season was an own goal. A sign of things to come or can this ominous beginning be changed by future matches?
