LONDON (AFP) - The new Premier League season kicks off on Friday (Aug 9) with Champions League winners Liverpool hosting promoted Norwich.

The champions are likely to need more of the same to keep Liverpool at bay again, making it essential they get off to a fast start - beginning at West Ham, where City have won on their past four visits in all competitions and scored an astonishing 17 goals in the process.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, another revered star now leading his old club from the dug-out, also needs a winning start after a woeful end to last season ruined his team's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League and raised doubts about the Norwegian's suitability for the job.
