Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul, former players, celebrity fans and fanatic supporters – they’ve all had their say on the Canaries’ 2019-20 Premier League fixture release.

The Canaries will kick off the Premier League campaign with a trip to the freshly crowned European champions Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp set to come up against a few familiar faces in the Norwich camp from his time at Borussia Dortmund.

A tough start continues with an opening home game with Newcastle United before Europa League winners Chelsea arrive a week later.

A first trip to West Ham's London Stadium rounds off August, while September opens with the defending Premier League champions rocking up at Carrow Road - underlining a challenging start to life back in the top-flight for Daniel Farke's squad.

"Amazing fixtures to start the season... Easy 6 points... Champions League winners and the mad Geordies. #excited #cantwait #FixtureReleaseDay," tweeted Krul within minutes of the 9am reveal.
