Daniel Farke makes ‘world class’ Liverpool admission but issues warning ahead of Premier League opener against Norwich City

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke has been talking to the press ahead of their Premier League opener against Liverpool this weekend.

The Reds travel to Carrow Road on Saturday as they look to get their campaign off to a winning start in a bid to reclaim the Premier League title from Manchester City.

Liverpool faced the Canaries on the opening day of the 19/20 season and a 4-1 victory kick-started an impressive run that eventually ended their 30-year wait for a Premier League title.

Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side can start this season in similar fashion, but Farke believes his players are better prepared this time around.

“If I am honest I am not to keen to speak on lesson learned,” he said. “Two years ago it was an unbelievable promotion and young players. We are in a much better position this season.

“We have a more experienced bunch of players and we want to earn our right to play on the top level for a bit longer.”

Facing Liverpool on the opening day once again isn’t the start Farke would’ve wanted after his side spent one season back in the Championship and won the league comfortably by six points to return to the top flight.

“We are facing a world class club, with world class players, a world class manager and world class fans,” Farke admitted. “For Liverpool it is not that easy for them to bring in players better than they already have.

“I think they had a fantastic signing with Konaté. He is top class. It is a bit challenge.

“We are not the favourite in this game, but it will be like this for the majority of games and we have worked so hard to get these opportunities. We will fight with our tools to be competitive.”

When the two sides met in August 2019, Klopp’s side were 4-0 up at half-time after an early own goal from Grant Hanley, followed by goals from Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Divock Origi.

The Canaries were a different prospect second-half as Teemu Pukki pulled a goal back on 64 minutes as a mere consolation for his side.

Norwich will need to be on it from minute one if they’re to take points off Liverpool this time around, but that’s something Farke is well aware of.

“Our group of players you can’t compare to two years ago,” the Norwich boss continued. “However, my thoughts of the game (against Liverpool) two years ago. We won the second half but you have to be spot on in each and every moment in these games.

“Small things are always decisive in football. We get the feeling we are much better prepared this time and we can turn the fine margins around.

“We are not naive, we know we are in the best league in the world. We will have to be spot on in each and every game.”
