Never in Premier League history have all three promoted sides won on the opening weekend.
Traditionally, teams coming up from the Championship have struggled, collectively winning just 15 out of 86 such contests over the past 29 seasons, averaging less than a point per match.
This will be the fourth time the sides have met in Matchweek 1 of a top-flight season, with Norwich seeking their first victory, having drawn one and lost the other two such contests.
Their only PL home win against Liverpool in nine attempts came in the competition's inaugural 1992/93 season, when they won 1-0.
The Canaries then travel to champions Manchester City in their first away match. And it doesn't get much easier in their following two outings.

Watford have tasted defeat just once in their previous 14 season openers, making a winning start on seven occasions while picking up a point six times.
They have also lost just one of their last 10 home league matches against Villa, winning six.
Brentford's first ever Premier League opponents will be Arsenal, whom they welcome to the Brentford Community Stadium on Friday 13 August.
It is the first of back-to-back derbies for Brentford, who visit Crystal Palace in their second match.
Brentford will then be reunited with another of their former players, Brighton's Neal Maupay, in their following match.
