A well deserved win for the Reds, who have strolled to victory against one of the Premier League new boys.
They were not quite sparkling but never looked in doubt of the three points. Norwich have concerns to ponder but if they put in similar effort in their other 37 games this term, there is no reason why they cannot stay up.
Goals from Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Divock Origi were on target as Liverpool starts the new Premier League in style however Canaries forward Teemu Pukki netted a consolation goal for the newly promoted side.
