Klopp's message to Liverpool fans ahead of Premier League opener against Norwich

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is wary of the danger Norwich City pose when they play their first English Premier League match of the season on Friday night at Anfield. 

The German has called on the fans to create a 'wonderful atmosphere' at their home ground, with this being the first match at home since their triumph in the Champions League. 

"For them, (Norwich) Championship winning is like Champions League winning so long ago you cannot build on that but both teams have reasons to be confident," he said in his pre-match conference. 

"These fixtures are always like the proper banana skins and it is made for something like that if you're not aware of it. If you are not 100 per cent in a game like this you will slip, they are too good for that they are too good a team,"

Klopp and Liverpool had a dismal preseason, but the manager promised to have his side ready for the long journey ahead in the league.

"With the effort and desire, we show and we have to be from the start we have to be angry and greedy again all these things. We have to think it is football,"

"We can focus on football and the atmosphere will be good because it is a while ago since we played at Anfield. Our crowd is waiting for us and we are waiting for our fans. The welcome will be loud and emotional, 'You'll Never Walk Alone',"

The German will welcome his key players among them Salah, Firminho and Mane, who all missed the preseason after their involvement with respective national teams.

The Reds will be hoping to kick off the new season on a high, having come close to lifting the title last season.
