Fans can expect this weekend's opening matches to provide a flurry of goals if the past encounters between the teams involved are anything to go by.
The pair have met 18 times in the Premier League and scored a total of 69 goals in those matches, an average of four per duel.
It will also be the third successive campaign in which Liverpool have started against a promoted team, and the previous two matches have been laden with goals.
When Norwich travelled to Anfield in Matchweek 1 of the 2019/20 season, Liverpool won 4-1.
Last season Liverpool edged past Leeds United 4-3 at Anfield, the fifth time in a row they have scored more than three goals in their first fixture.
The Arsenal win was one of three occasions when Liverpool have started a season with a match featuring seven goals, the joint-highest total for a Matchweek 1 fixture in the competition's history.
