Norwich will face a huge ask on the opening day of the season, with the Canaries facing a daunting task of visiting the reigning Champions League winners Liverpool at Anfield.
Famously a place Norwich have struggled at down the years, the prospect of facing the reigning European Champions will certainly be a daunting one.
It doesn’t get easier for the Canaries after this, with Norwich hosting Newcastle, Chelsea and the reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in their first three home games.
City play all of the top six at home before Christmas, playing Manchester United at home on the 26th October, Arsenal at home on the 30th November, before facing Tottenham just after Christmas on the 28th December.
Norwich’s boxing day fixture is Aston Villa away, the place where Norwich lifted the Championship trophy last season.
The Canaries host Crystal Palace at home on new years day, before away trips to Manchester United and Spurs follow in January.
The run in for Norwich starts with a trip to Watford, before ties against West Ham at home, a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea, Burnley at home before facing Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on the final day of the season.
It was never going to be easy for Norwich in the Premier League, but daunting trips to Liverpool on the opening day and Man City on the final day will be huge tasks for Daniel Farke’s side.
But otherwise, it’s just the fixture list. Every team plays each other twice.
For Norwich to stay in the Premier League however, momentum will be key, and this start won’t help. However, with no run of the big six all together in one group, like 2013/14, this certainly isn’t Norwich’s worst ever fixture list.
