The two teams who kick off 2019/20 season shared nine goals in their last meeting in match remembered for Jurgen Klopp breaking his glasses

Liverpool face Norwich City in the first match of the season and if it is anything like the last time they met, fans of the Premier League are in for a treat, while manager Jurgen Klopp may need a spare set of glasses.

Although Klopp will have happy memories of 23 January 2016, the Liverpool manager may be hoping their opening match on Friday 9 August has a more comfortable conclusion. 

That is because the last time Norwich were in the Premier League the two teams shared nine goals in a thriller at Carrow Road remembered by many for Klopp breaking his glasses.

Klopp had watched his side concede in the second minute of stoppage time as Sebastian Bassong struck for the hosts to make the score 4-4.

But right at the death Adam Lallana popped up to seal a 5-4 win with a goal that caused pandemonium on the sidelines.

"I have a second pair of glasses but I can't find them," said Klopp. "It's hard to find glasses without glasses."
