Liverpool Break Club Record With Big Opening Day Victory Over Norwich

Jurgen Klopp admitted the problem "does not look too good" and ruled the Brazil global out of the UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea in Istanbul on Wednesday.

Klopp will have to rely on back-up goalkeeper Adrian while Alisson recovers, having only signed for the club this summer.

But Henderson identified areas where he and his teammates can improve on going forward, with Teemu Pukki dismissing any hopes of an opening-day clean sheet by netting a consolation goal for the Canaries in the second half.

Ben Godfrey is certain Norwich City will be stronger for their chastening 4-1 loss at Liverpool, after a second half at Anfield which proved the spirit within Daniel Farke's squad's once again. Two younger goalkeepers, Caoimhin Kelleher and Vitezslav Jaros, are out of action with minor hand and arm injuries, making it hard for Jürgen Klopp to name a goalkeeper for the substitutes' bench.

"We'll stick to our principles, we'll stick to our working principles, the way we play, the way we work". "You don't want to be in a situation where only one goalie is fit, but that's how it is".

"All we ever do is concentrate on that game that's immediately ahead of us", Van Dijk said.

It was the only blot on Liverpool's start of the attempt to be champions of England for the first time since 1990, having been beaten to the trophy in May by Manchester City by one point before winning the Champions League.

Norwich's German boss Farke took encouragement from the way his team stuck at their task after the break and this fixture was always going to be a tough assignment after a three-season absence from the Premier League.

In other news, Alisson Becker picked up an injury which could see him miss up to six weeks of action - said Dominic King from the Daily Mail. Nobody has to congratulate me any more, even though still they are doing it.

"We didn't come into the game underestimating them at all", Gomez told Sky Sports after the match. It was a learning curve for us, we were a bit naïve in the first half but we reacted well in the second half and I'm proud of the players'.
