Liverpool’s first game of the 2019-2020 season will be at home to Norwich City and the only time this happened previously, Liverpool won the league.
According to OptaJoe, the Reds opened their First Division campaign in 1976 under Bill Shankly at home to Norwich and ran out 1-0 winners following a Steve Heighway goal.
Liverpool were crowed as First Division Champions, winning their 10th domestic league title. They won the title by one point that year, similar to Manchester City’s triumph last season.
What is interesting is that Manchester City came the second in the same season when Liverpool won the title.
