Firmino doubles Liverpool’s lead over Norwich Metropolis
Roberto Firmino has doubled Liverpool’s lead over Premier League newcomers Norwich City.
Norwich started their final season in the Premier League, the 2019-20 season, against Liverpool. They were defeated 4-1 by the team that would later become champions.
When the schedule was released and Norwich was slated for another clash with the Reds on opening day, fans must have thought, “Not again …”
While Norwich didn’t roll out as much that night as it did two years ago, Liverpool’s quality prevailed, with Firmino’s goal, the second of the game, putting them on course for victory.
It came! ?
Firmino types in a second for Liverpool five minutes after coming on!
